About MeAs an artist I have a very varied background - portrait artist, costume designer, hair stylist, make up artist. certificate two in Make Up Artistry from the Academy of Make Up in Melbourne. I have worked with make up from a very young age, specialising in theatrical, burlesque, pin up, photographic, black and white and character styles.
I am always excited to do something different.
My core ethos is to behave in a professional manner and appreciate similar when organising shoots, always on time and always honest about availability. I have listed my free dates below for the next 3 months.
I only do paid or published work, but will give really reasonable rates for students that just cover my costs for make up, petrol and disposables.
I will consider doing tfp if project is seriously awesome.
Self taught hair stylist. I am quite proficient in period hairstyles, updo's, modern art styles, curling and pin curling. Often being called on to do both hair and make up, also am happy to just do hair on a shoot.
Performer - burlesque, cabaret, vaudeville, dancer, ex-aerialist, tap dancer, Irish dancer, contemporary dancer, sometimes cat walker, occasional model.
I teach flexibility and poise to dancers and performers at Bottoms Up! Burlesque and Pole school. Some call me a 'pose coach'. I find many young models are not taught how to use their bodies properly.
Also, I can handy on set as a photographers assistant/stylist. I studied photography for three years at tech and tafe, so have a sound understanding of what the photographer is looking for by way of line and light etc.
Available Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Sundays.
As I am booked I will update.
