Originally from the Caribbean island of Trinidad, my family migrated to London in 1993. As a child I was fascinated by art and wanted to create something that was not two dimensional but came to life through sculpture or makeup. It was during a career day, when a past student brought in a prop of a wolf’s head that was used in a feature film; I discovered I wanted to study Prosthetics and Special Makeup Effects. This influenced my choices at University where I went on to study Theatre Design.
Since then, I have completed an intensive Master Makeup Program at Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles, California, specialising in Beauty, High Fashion, Airbrushing, Special Makeup Effects and Prosthetics. In addition to Bald Caps Facial Hair, Injuries, Old Age, Creature Maquette, Sculpture and Digital Effects.
