Stage Craft

Live theater and the real-time movement of make-up and hair is in a niche of its own. Although most of my experience lies in camera work, much of my education and time on set has assisted me in growing in this exciting field. When arriving in Amsterdam in 2017, I had the opportunity to work at The National Opera & Ballet in the Kap & Grime Department. Working in the Atelier as well as Opera and Ballet productions has been a rewarding experience. Using my “Hollywood” techniques creating prosthetics for the opera has opened the door to becoming Voorman for Aus Licht ( a 3 day opera). With over 10 productions under my belt she looks forward to many more!!
