About

Education: Siobhán studied millinery at The London College of Fashion and had her own hat business for a number of years. She was commissioned to make some hats for a play in 1993 and ended up working with that production company and many more in costume and millinery. She retrained in 1999 at The Delamar Academy of Make-up, wishing to pursue a career in prosthetics. Whilst there she began to enjoy all aspects of make-up.

Skills: Character make-up, period styling, a good knowledge of history – both political and social, painting and colouration, wig application and styling (real hair and acrylic), research and character detail.

Inspiration: Siobhán takes her inspiration from the every day, the mundane and the peculiar, people watching a regularity, old family photo albums and early documentaries. She also has a keen interest in art and Independent cinema.
