"Having trained in hairdressing I went on to train in T.V film, special effects make up and wig making.   Deciding to follow a career in Theatre I was lucky enough to become a trainee wig assistant at The National Theatre working on shows such as 'My Fair Lady' amongst others.  I then moved into London's West End working on 'Phantom of the Opera', 'Billy Elliot', 'Lord Of The Rings' and many more. With the knowledge I have gained working in the West End for over a decade I chose to take those skills to work on a freelance basis.

Finishing my West End work as Head of Wigs and Make up at The Dominions' 'We Will Rock You' I started my freelance work as head of Wigs for 'Phantom Of The Operas' 25th Anniversary at The Royal Albert Hall.

I enjoy the variety of freelancing and the excitement weddings bring as all those months of planning start to unfold!

Since then I have worked in T.V and Film including working on weddings all year round!
