About Heather

“Heather has been working as a makeup artist on independent films for just under ten years, but more recently as found a passion for screen writing. While this is not the first film she has written and directed, it is certainly the most emotional one so far. Heather also provided the makeup, wardrobe and some of the props for our film.” - excerpt from the Ours, short film facebook page.

My work involves screen makeup, beauty makeup, sfx and on occasion, prop making. My sculptural background affords me the ability to create makeup, props & prosthetic effects unique to each film I'm involved with.
