We are spoilt in Bristol for great Theatre and Circus. I've assisted many busy productions in Theatres and Big tops. Designing makeup concepts for music videos, promotional show reels and theatrical performances. I'm able to style wigs, make small prosthetic pieces and I use a variety of grease paints and alcohol based makeup, so it stays put while under strong spot lights or flying on a trapeze.
I use a lot of body paint in my own productions of performances. I design and create walkabout acts for entertaining crowds at festivals, events and shows.
