I completed my NVQ Level 2 in Hair and Media Make-up and my NVQ Level 3 in Theatrical, Special Effects, Hair and Media Make-up, before going on to graduate from my BA Specialist Hair and Media Make-up course with First Class Honours. I then gained a position as a Graduate Teaching Assistant before gaining my current role as a Lecturer in prosthetic makeup for the Specialist Hair and Media Make-up course.
I have competed in many competitions over the years, including Face painting, Body painting, Special Effects and Fashion and have been lucky enough to gain either 1st or 2nd place in all my competitions. My current role now involves looking after our competition team on the course.
My area of specialism is prosthetics and teach level 4 and level 5 students across our prosthetic modules.
I teach Sculpture and Design, Special Effects, On set Prosthetics and Character Prosthetic Creation.
