When I crew up shoots the first thing I consider is the energy that people will bring to set. If I can find people who are easy to get along with it helps so much on the day, especially when producing comedy. In Jessamy I’ve found the best of both worlds. Not only is she a pleasure to have around but she is without a doubt one of the most talented makeup artists I’ve ever come across. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I love what I do. I am intrigued by how makeup can change the way someone feels about themselves, how is can instil a quiet confidence in a person or create a completely different character for a production. Each job is different and I get to meet and work with so many interesting people from all walks of life.
