Background – academic/geographic
I was born in Bow, East London so this makes me a true cockney through and through, helping me to keep it real, and stay grounded in the crazy world of fashion & beauty.

How did you get started as a make-up artist?
I was fortunate to be around make up artistry and the film industry growing up, and when I realised that I could combine my two passions, Art & Fashion into a career, I pursued my dream as a make up artist. I assisted a leading make up artist for 5 years to develop my talent and skills.

What do you feel was your big break into high calibre beauty shoots?
An agent and beauty director of a leading glossy magazine, who took me under their wing and nurtured and developed me, placing me with edgy, photographers and hairdressers on photo-shoots, creating timeless beauty images, and from this my first big break was my first Vogue cover on Yasmin Le Bon. This was followed shortly after by a Harper’s Bazaar cover with Cindy Crawford, as this was the beginning of the supermodel era, this exposure took me to the next level within the beauty industry. Over the years I have worked on over 200 magazine covers globally, 70 of them being Cosmopolitan Magazine covers alone,
