Bio

Since completing my first Makeup Qualification over 20 years ago, my main focus has been working in the TV and Film arena. However, I have always been happy and willing to work in other areas whenever possible. And because of this I can also add Commercial, Editorial, Photographic and Event Work to my repertoire.

 

Starting out at Channel 9 in Adelaide, I worked on Children's shows such as Here's Humphrey, whilst also working on the Local and National News, Light Entertainment & Sporting Events such as A Current Affair, Today Show, Hey Hey It’s Saturday, Australian Grand Prix and Test Series Cricket. And always being conscious of the importance of up to date training combined with my love of the industry and arts, I also completed a Diploma in Art and Certificate in Hairdressing during my years working at Channel 9.

 

Gradually I moved into the freelance world. And I have worked for many of the major networks on jobs such as Fox Footy (Foxtel), The Project  (Network 10) and House Rules  (Seven network) most recently.

 

I also started working on Drama Series TV and Film, Firstly completing all of McLeod's Daughters, Series 1-8.  Since then I have worked on a number of series including Bed of Roses, The Slap, Beaconsfield and recently ANZAC Girls for the ABC. Some Films I’ve completed include, award winning 100 Bloody Acres, Oranges and Sunshine, The Boys Are Back and Beautiful Kate and the ever popular, Red Dog.

 

I’ve worked with some of Australia’s top Makeup and Hair artists/ designers and their teams, both in Adelaide and interstate. But I am also able to achieve this high standard on my own when the opportunity presents itself. I pride myself on delivering professionalism and confidentiality to any production I work on and believe that my depth of experience and knowledge across Hair, Makeup and Special Effects will add value to any future job. However I'm flexible and open to new ideas, as I believe it can only further improve my skills, which keeps me motivated to continue to expand my horizons in this industry and be an asset to any team I am a part of.
