About meAs an ex professional performer, I am very familiar with the workings of each department within theatre and the theatre environment. Having toured nationally and internationally within large scale productions, I understand the needs of the performer in addition to the needs of other departments to ensure smooth running of a production. Whilst much of my work has been within television, my passion is and always has been theatre.
I retrained as a mature student, attending the Peter Swords King Intensive Media Make Up Course, graduating April 2014.
I have recently worked as a daily assistant on the period feature 'Another Mothers Son'. I was responsible for setting and styling of hair (1940's), dirty down/cuts/blood make up application for supporting artists and assisting the crowd room supervisor as necessary. From July - November 2015, I was employed on the Main Team for the Mammoth Screen contemporary production of Agatha Raisin (Sky). I was responsible for make up application and hair styling for main cast throughout the 8 episodes, maintaining accurate continuity notes, carrying on set checks, script breakdown and assisting the Head of Department and make up supervisor as necessary.
Prior to this I was employed as Wig Assistant (in a two person team) on the UK Tour of Anything Goes until 1/6/2015. My role included daily blocking and washing of wigs, wet setting (roller and pin curling), dressing out (1930's), application of lace front wigs, preparation of hair for wig application for the cast, action of a plot throughout the live production and assisting the Head of Department as necessary.
Spring 2015 I was employed as a Hair and Make Up Trainee for Time Crashers (Wall to Wall/Channel 4), a Celebrity Reality Television show.
Prior to this I worked at Peter Owen LTD as a trainee wig maker. My work included knotting, wig repairs, weaving, making switches, creping, daily blocking and washing of wigs and assisting with stock orders for film and television.
My television work began as a Creative Skillset Hair and Make Up Trainee within the Crowd room of Poldark (Mammoth Screen/BBC1), where I was employed for the final 3 months of shooting. My roles included application of make up and wigs both hard and lace front, wig maintenance, assisting with fittings of Supporting Artists, maintaining accurate continuity records and assisting the Crowd Room Supervisor as necessary.
Additional SkillsI am currently making a wig including the foundation. I have a good knowledge of wig maintenance, blocking of wigs, how to repair wigs, making of switches/weft and knotting.
