I am a qualified freelance makeup artist and hairstylist based in Auckland, NZ. Trained at both 'The Makeup School' in 2010 and 'Serville's Academy of Hair' in 2000 working in 'Serville's Chancery' for a number of years as a colour technician and senior stylist.  I have been involved in editorial, film & TV, weddings and runway events.

Prior to makeup and hair I studied art and photography at both Unitec and Whitecliffe College of Art & Design after which I assisted in both studio and on location. 

My love for fashion editorial stems from being able to have both the creative freedom and enjoyment of being a part of creating beautiful imagery.

For weddings I will help guide you to create your own perfect, individual style, encapsulating your own unique beauty with a fresh, modern feel. The hair styles I love to create are of a relaxed nature with soft texture and a more unstructured approach paired with beautifully natural and radiant makeup. Past brides I have worked with have featured in the likes of 'Together Journal' and 'New Zealand Weddings Magazine' as well as numerous wedding blogs such as 'Hello May'. I have also worked on editorial style features within these magazines, styled shoots, lookbooks and campaigns such as 'Rue De Seine'and 'Lovers Society,'  all of which you can view under 'Weddings'.  I truly love what I do and think that reflects back through the work that I create.
