Why do you do what you do? At this stage in my career I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I really love and enjoy what I do.
Could you describe your style and how it developed? Skin, color and beauty sums up my style in three words. Over the years through assisting make up greats like Lucia Pieroni, Stephane Marais and Pat McGrath my technique has evolved into it’s own.

Having an insight to what the photographer is wanting to achieve and what the stylist is bringing on board for the story always inspires me to bring something extra to the creative table.
