Sue has been in the entertainment world since birth.
Born in Brighton and raised travelling the world with her parents in the ice extravaganza Holiday on Ice.
Surrounded by make-up, wigs, feathers and false eyelashes she developed a lifelong love for the art of Make-Up, Hairdressing and Character creating.
30 years in the Film industry has given Sue all the experience required to design every genre of film, television and fashion styling.
Her early days as a hairdresser on the floor, senior in two top Salons – Dave and Johan in South Africa and then Toni and Guy in Manchester – propelled her creativity in working with hair styling, hair pieces as well as making her own hair pieces. Her passion for her craft led to Sue studying Make-Up and Prosthetics at Granada Films in the 1980s.
Since then Sue has developed and refined all her skills and is known to be a designer that can create characters, looks and designs from any period and style, in any sector of hair, wigs, make-up, SFX, prosthetics and body art.
All Sue’s fake beards and moustaches are hand laid hair by hair, a method that perfectly complements HD formats. Sue also designs and creates all types of tattoos and makes most of her own prosthetics, very often on site to minimize outsourcing.
Sue is highly experienced at designing long form projects, no project too big or too small.
Recently Sue was nominated for her work on Strike Back (having worked 5 seasons on the production) at the Hollywood Local 706 Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards 2016.
Sue is highly experienced at designing long form projects -no project to big or to small, her biggest passions are film, travel, people and the art of Make-Up, hair and prosthetics.
