- About -

With a background in Fine Art and graduating in 2006 with a degree in Special Effects Makeup from the London College of Fashion, I have a broad range of expertise within fashion, music, theatre, film & TV and art. My passion currently is to use the self to explore new ways of presenting my inner world from home to the world through self-casting, sculpting, self-portraits and paintings on found materials such as denim, satin and lycra with inks, acrylic, plaster and latex. I started out in make-up, wigs & hair within film, tv and theatre, such as at The Royal Opera House. I now work mainly in fashion for editorials such as i-D and Vogue Italia; my clients include Amber Valetta, Frank Ocean, Missoni and Saint Laurent. Having always nurtured a love of 3D objects, sculpting and the need to create, I developed the beauty / jewellery brand H&H Body Adornment. The brand was seen in Vogue and on runway shows for Thierry Mugler, also Madonna, Beyonce and Rihanna and many other celebrities wore our pieces and with past stockists including Colette, Net-a-Porter and Selfridges. Similarly my brand Shimmer Twins Treasure Lashes was stocked in ASOS and Urban Outfitters. I often use my own products on clients in make-up shoots, such as with Italian Vogue and Allure. I work on a consultancy basis for brands offering advice and design suggestions. I draw inspiration from travel and music, and enjoy working on special projects that incorporate a love of the arts. Above all, I wish to always realise my creative intentions by remaining innovative. I am interested in natural and homeopathic cosmetics and skincare also. I love luxury products and brands and I am interested in creating further products and pioneering products and brand within this field. I like to channel my creativity through other brands.
