Dedication and a deep understanding of permanent make-up

Permanent make-up is my passion. I started my career at well-known permanent make-up brand Nouveau Contour, before travelling all over the world to Russia, Milan and the USA to train with renowned artists and masters in the field.

This enabled me to further develop and hone my skills and develop a fine, beautifully natural style to bring back to the UK. Over the years I have trained with the crème de la crème of the world’s elite permanent make-up artists. Early on in my career I trained with Russian master Alina Solovena one-to-one, developing my hair strokes. This was the very start of my journey to creating the uniquely defined, precision-led technique I am renowned for.

Here I offer this expertise to my clients, but also to artists who want to learn eyebrow work in a more in-depth manner. I consistently partner with the leaders in my field to create detailed and defined work which has taken years to master and is an art to achieve.

International acclaim and industry recognition

I have consistently attracted recognition and international acclaim for my work, both as an artist and as a trainer and tutor. I was one of the first UK artists featured across four pages in a main feature about my work and training academy in the world’s first professional magazine Permanent Make-Up International in 2014, which was a huge honour. I have been a guest speaker and contributor at several other high-profile industry events over the years, including the EIPMU in Dublin and The American Academy of Micropigmentation.

Qualifications and accreditations

I’m passionate about my ongoing professional development. I strongly believe that as an artist it’s essential to continue learning, to progress and further develop my style and skillset. In 2015 I trained in microblading with Branko Babic one-to-one in Serbia, before also training with Mary Richardson from the USA.

After attending international courses and workshops with some of the respected artists in the industry I was keen to share my own knowledge and experience to help others to work in a profession I love and am incredibly passionate about. I’m committed to consistently raising quality and standards in the industry as a whole, developing new generations of expert artists who can enjoy creating beautiful brow designs alongside the freedom of running their own business.

Following my personal success in permanent make-up, I wanted to re-invest and give back, to share the knowledge that I have gained over my many years in the industry. Through this desire to teach my prestigious permanent make-up academy was born in Cheadle, Cheshire in 2016. Here I offer an array of exclusive permanent make-up courses from beginner to more advanced brow training using state of the art digital machines, needles and microblading techniques.
