Originally from Hamilton, I spent 18 years in the UK,, then in 2019 I returned to my lovely home of New Zealand and settled in Auckland.
I started in the beauty industry in 2004, then in my late 30's decided on a career in Permanent Makeup
2017 - I completed my training in Permanent Makeup with Tarryn Vice from Finishing Touches UK. Tarryn is a Master Educator for Cosmetic Tattooing, Permanent Makeup Artist of the year UK 2018 and Eyebrow Artist of the year UK 2018
2018 - I went on to further my skills by completing my training in Medical Tattooing with Kelly Forshaw Smith from Finishing Touches UK & Medicos London. Kelly is a Master Educator for Medical Tattooing and the Medical Micropigmentation winner UK 2018 & 2019.
2018 - I also completed my qualifications in MCA Micro-needling , Dermal Needling, Skin Peels and Dermaplaning with both Finishing Touches UK and The Clinical Academy.
2019 - Early Skin Cancer Detection accreditation from MASCED so that I can spot anything unusual on my clients skin.
2019 - I completed my training with X-Tract, a brand new non-laser method of tattoo removal direct with Xtract themselves who very kindly sent a trainer to New Zealand. Their method is like no other tattoo removal, it draws the ink directly out of the skin in a completely safe way with no risk of compromise to the immune system.
2020 - Advanced peel training with Mesoestetics, leaders in advanced skincare, with my particular interest being in the reduction of hyperpigmentation and non surgical skin rejuvenation.
2020 - Eyeliner masterclass with UK artist Courtney Stevens
2021 - Eyebrow and Lip Blush masterclasses with Evenflo artist Victoria Wynn
