Hello – here is a bit of information about me

With Peter Vaughn

Most recently I designed TV shows for ITV, Netflix, Acorn, Channel Four, and the BBC.

Most of them have been contemporary, but I also enjoy being part of period and fantasy productions where I can use my wig making skills and ever-increasing wig/facial hair stock.

Initially, I started my make-up career in musical theatre (Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, 42nd Street, Westside Story, The Rocky Horror) where I learned many of my wig making skills. They became very useful when I later designed commercials, countless docu-dramas, and entertainment TV shows such as Eurotrash and Freak Out, both for Channel Four.

Whilst designing independent films and TV dramas, I also dabbled in the fashion industry (as a makeup artist on fashion shows for Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Paul Castello) and editorials. Here are a few examples.

More recently I started occasionally guest lecturing for Creative Media Skills (Pinewood Studios) and Delamar Make up Academy (Ealing Studios). It is wonderful to teach new talent and watch them grow into fellow make-up artists.

“Docu-dramas have given me an insight on how to work very creatively with small budgets, being a team player, and coping well with ever-changing, last-minute filming situations. I believe these skills are very transferrable to big-budget dramas”.
