I gained my qualifications at the prestigious Grease Paint school in London, under the guidance of Christine Vidler. My time at Grease Paint was invaluable, as I not only gained my qualifications but I was also able to be creative and express through the art of make up.

In all jobs and businesses may people are asked who their inspirations are, for me the answer is simple, my family. From an early age I have been engulfed in a world of art and fashion, having grown up in a family of photographers and with a mother who was also qualified as a hair and make up artist.

Whether it's the war paint of the native Amercian tribes, the whited-out faces of the Japanese Geisha, or the Avant Garde looks of the Alexander Macqueen fashion show, make up has always seemed to play a part in society and is used to create characters and to evoke and emotional response. Wedding make up is no different, especially on the happiest day of your life.
