I have been a professional hair and makeup artist now for over 20 years a job that I truly love and enjoy. 



Originally studying art and design at college after leaving school, I opted for a change of career and decided to follow my dreams to become a professional hair and makeup artist. After completing a professional beauty therapy course in Newcastle I went on to set up my own wedding hair and makeup business.

In 2014 after 6 very successful and rewarding years we sold the company. I now continue to provide an elite hair and makeup service for weddings, commercial, photo shoots and special occasions.
