About Me

​​​
When I left school, I thought my path was laid out in front of me. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do with my life and how the next five years were going to run. I was going to have a gap year to have some hip surgery and then I was going to go to Music College to get a degree in Classical Singing and become an Opera Singer. So off I went on my gap year, I had my hips sorted out, and got myself a place at Royal Welsh College of Music and drama. Just before my place was confirmed however, I decided to do a ten day hair and makeup course with Illamasqua and the Hair Project in Hoxton, because I did have an interest in hair and makeup and thought it would be a good backup plan if things went wrong.

Now, I wouldn't say that things went wrong exactly. I started my course in Cardiff in September 2013 with a working pair of hips and a head full of dreams! However, as time wore on, I began to doubt my choices. I started doing makeup for college productions, and productions with companies associated with college. In the Summer between my second and third year, I auditioned to be a Disney Princess, and when I was unsurprisingly unsuccesful, I thought about doing the Erasmus foreign exchange, but my college of choice wasn't available. I then decided that I was looking at these options because I wasn't happy, and wanted to focus on makeup.

So in the October half term, I went to visit Iver Academy, which had been Greasepaint when I first came across it, and booked my place on their Advanced Certificate in Hair and Makeup Artistry starting in January 2016, and that was it! Soon after I left Cardiff, I was offered a place on Welsh National Youth Opera's production of 'Kommilitonen!' which I had auditioned for at the start of my third year. However when it was offered to me, I felt absolutely no desire to take up the role, or any regret at leaving that life behind.

Since graduating from Iver Academy in August 2016, I have enjoyed doing a wide variety of work, and have started a monthly blog where you can stay up to date with what I have been doing, and keep an eye out for where I'm going to be! So have a look around my website, and please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!
