Candase Fox

I am a highly motivated and hard working woman in my thirties, who is passionate about establishing a successful career in hair and makeup artistry for theatre, television and film. I am naturally creative, with many transferrable skills such as communication, team working, accustomed to long hours and knowledge of anatomy, wounds and illness, as a result of my previous career in Nursing. I also have experience in makeup and hair care/ styling for diverse skin and hair types, including afro and textured hair. The opportunity to continue to learn and further develop my craft and associated necessary skills, in order to be the most helpful and productive trainee and eventually artist is something I find exciting and look forward to in my career.
