I have 5 GCSEs grades A-C and 3 A-levels, grades A-D.

I am a fully qualified Beauty Therapist to NVQ 2 level, and I am also working towards my NVQ level 3 Beauty Therapy (Media Make-up route), Acrylic Nails NVQ level 2 and Team Leader NVQ 2 qualifications. I also have an up-to-date CRB check, valid until 2013.

I have taken part in three short courses in First Aid over the years, a Safeguarding Adults course, Level 2 Numeracy and Literacy and took part in a 2-day Special Effects make-up course. I completed 8 months of a year’s course in journalism (NCTJ) in 2004.

Whilst studying for my Beauty Therapy NVQ level 2, I worked on paying clients in the college’s own Salon, "Inner beauty", so I have experienced working in a busy salon, and believe this will help me in my future business plans.

I am currenty working for Rowe Photographic Studios in the capacity of the Studios Professional Make-up Artist in Residence.

I am available most weekends for freelance work dependant on booking commitments.
I am happy to work on most assignments but will favour paid work due to use of consumables in make-up. I am happy to work on location, in studios only both in the the Uk and overseas as long as travelling expenses will be fully covered to and from locations.

Please feel free to contact me about your required assignments to allow me to consider them and get back to you with a quotation.

I worked with Gemma recently on a 'Black Tape Project' shoot. It was my first time meeting her and she instantly made me feel at ease, very easy to get along with, brought tons of different makeup to choose from, was very creative and had great ideas. Can't wait to see the pictures and hope to see you again in the future. Would not hesitate to recommend!

Gemma worked for me on a Black Tape Project Style shoot and was as usual brilliant. She shows a totally natural skill at doing the makeup for the models and can offer practical advice to make sure that you get the best results on the day. A consummate professional who takes a total pride in her work she maintains a very high standard of makeup. Its always fun to have Gemma around and she helps to put everyone at ease and is great fun to work with as well.
Would I recommend her to others, Hell yes, she is worth every penny if you want to have the best and if you don't book her then you want your head examining.
She gives 110% always and I look forward to working with her again in the not too distant future.
