I am a hair and makeup junior based in south Lincolnshire, but I travel all over for work. I have worked on a number of different projects, but the majority of my experience has been period TV, which I absolutely love. I love helping bring to life different characters as well as working closely in a team. I have a 5 month old little girl, Eliza, so I am slowly getting back into work doing dailies and photo shoots.

Work Experience

The Essex Serpant (main team set cover artist)
A Discovery of Witches S2 (main team trainee and Artist),
Peaky Blinders 5 (main team trainee),
The Witches (crowd junior)
Harlots 1&2 (crowd Trainee)

My photo shoots include working for brands such as Noble, Schoffel, Sherpa and Artilect clothing brands as a HMUA for both lifestyle and studio shoots

Commercials including Volvo, University of Birmingham, EE, Royal London (junior) and Levi’s (junior)
