Founder & Creative Director
I have been so lucky to have had such a long career doing what I love. Meeting Pierre La Roche, Make-up Artist to the incomparable David Bowie, first sparked my interest in make-up, leading to my training in London in Fashion & Photographic make up.
I founded Changing Faces in 1985. Originally working on commercial make up for many international companies as well as on weddings. I retired as a working MUA in 2018 after working with thousands of Brides and having worked on probably about 20,000 faces!
I now run the wedding office with my amazingly talented team.
