I was born in Australia and after finishing school in Melbourne, I was offered a place to study Business Marketing at degree level at Swinburne University of Technology. I deferred after 2 years to travel the world and pursue a more creative career path.
I settled in London in the late 90's and live in both Essex and London to this day. I became a fully qualified and certified Personal Trainer in 2001 with YMCA Fitness Industry Training and was a Personal Trainer and Exercise to Music Teacher in the fitness industry until I had my second child in 2004.
Over the next 15 years, I started various businesses with my husband, all of which are still running, but it was writing, blogging and makeup artistry that was my passion.
I went on the train and work in the blogging and makeup/beauty industry and have a Diploma in Photography and Media Makeup and have been in the Beauty and Makeup industry since 2017.
I have worked on London Fashion Week in 2020 and 2021 as part of the LSM pro team and have worked with well known brands such as Dior, Wella, Vidal Sassoon, L’Oreal Professionel, Oxfam, Marks and Spencers food, Hermes and more, as well as various photoshoots, brides and bridal parties, business head shots and more.
I am also PA to Makeup Designer Astrid Kearney on various gigs and help support and assist to execute her designs.
I can execute any makeup look, due to the diverse training and experience I've had, depending on the brief.
I am also a Session Hairstylist after training with the amazing Kevin Fortune at his academy in central London.
I am also author of Silver Styling, which is online and on Instagram and has followers and subscribers in excess of 28K.
I am available and taking bookings, so please contact me for my price list and availability.
