«My principles as a Make-up and Hair Designer are to produce historically correct and natural styling true to the characters and the period in which they live and breathe. I want the audience to feel as if they are part of the story and I do this by producing work that is strong, consistent and above all realistic. I work very closely alongside the Director, Cast, Director of Photography, Art Director, and the Costume Designer in order to help create the characters and set the mood for the project» she states.
