I have been a hair and make up artist for 18 years.
Starting off after moving to London 21 years ago from Germany. My career started mainly in editorial work for the FACE, ID and Dazed and confused. Then moved into music and commercials. I worked several times at London Fashion Week.
I also worked @ Cannes and Venice film festivals several times working with the likes of Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.As well as several directors and actors and actresses.
I now have been working for over 13 years in the more commercial, fashion side of things. Mainly magazines, beauty and an arrae of mail order catalogues. This work took me all over the world.
This makes me very experienced in studio set shoots but even more on outside locations such as Capetown, Miami, Los Angeles, New York and the Caribean.
My motto is:
Being a make up artist is not just about applying make up a big part is to make your model/artist feel special, confident and their best.
The other part is to be a team player in the film or photographic team. After all these years I still love my job with a passion.
