behind the brush



My passion for the beauty industry has enabled me to collaborate with brand founders, global artists and trainers. I’m a qualified makeup artist with over 11 years of experience in the industry.


In 2009 I received my diploma from Academy Of Makeup. Early in my career I worked for Mecca Cosmetica, during my 5 years there I worked with some of the most luxurious makeup & skin care brands from all over the world. I was fortunate enough to be trained by the head global artist's from brands such as NARS, Stila, Chantecaille, By Terry, Hourglass, Ellis Faas, RMS.


By 2016 I was freelancing full time, working on Melbourne & Sydney's fashion week along with photo shoots, campaigns, television and many more projects. In 2019 I became a pro artist and trainer for Sephora with international brand Natasha Denona.

Recently moving to New Zealand I look forward to expanding and working with an international clientele.
