I am a Wellington based Make-up Artist, with 16 years experience working in all aspects of the make-up industry. After completing my Diploma in Film & Television Make-up, I commenced my career on the MAC Cosmetics counter which honed my skills in beauty make-up.
Later I diversified into film, television and theatre and have worked on many major International films including King Kong, The Hobbit, The Ghost in The Shell and Slow West. I have also worked on numerous New Zealand Films and Television series.
Recently I have had my first child, the gorgeous Sabine.
I enjoy all aspects of make-up. I love working with current beauty products to create beautiful wedding and fashion looks. I am very at home on a film set, standing by on actors, working with wigs and special effects make-up. I also enjoy the behind the scenes work of making hair pieces, drawing and creating tattoo transfers. I put professionalism, commitment and care into any make-up role I take on.
I have a strong interest in cruelty free, ethical, natural and organic make-up and carry products in alignment with these values in my kit, alongside the big and trusted brands such as MAC, Bobbi Brown, Stilla and Nars. I am happy to speak with you about 'greening' your makeup and skincare routines.
Alongside my make up artistry I also work as an illustrator. I create botanical and nature inspired images for private and commercial clients. I also have a range of prints available for sale under my label Lioness. These can be viewed at www.lioness.co.nz.
I have a diverse range of skills, I am available to travel nationally and internationally for work and would love to help you with your make-up needs.
