About Me

Bio

I am a professional makeup artist & hairstylist predominantly working in fashion campaign's, photo shoot's, ecomm, editorial, TV, commercial, advertising, celebrity and event work. I divide my time between Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast — but I'll take any opportunity to travel!

When I'm not painting faces or travelling for work, I take the time to get out-&-about with nature and enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
