She says “I would just like to start by saying thank you to everyone at Brushstroke for their time and teaching as it has helped me greatly to pursue a career in the industry. I have learnt so much from everyone and feel my education with you has been unparalleled. To have been taught by such experienced and talented tutors has been an amazing experience. I have had some amazing work through you and feel the knowledge I have gained from the school has been priceless when taking on jobs of my own.”

“My two years at Brushstroke where amazing, I learnt so much from all the amazing tutors. Brushstroke have really helped me since I graduated keeping me up to date on work that they hear about and even letting me come back and do refreshers on anything I feel I need to. Since I graduated I have had the opportunity to work on some really interesting things including the ITV drama Clean Break as well as working on several short films, I have also been doing quite a few weddings. I can whole heartedly recommend Brushstroke to everyone! My years at Brushstroke flew by and I learnt so much, the tutors are amazing teaching us all they know and always giving us advice so we can get ahead.”

Nikki Kearns

Nikki was a student on our 2 Year Make-Up & Hair course (2007-2009).

“Having undertaken the 2 Year Make-Up and Hair course, I now feel I have the confidence, knowledge, basic skills and understanding to stand me in good stead for a successful future career. Not only has Brushstroke taught me the skills I need to know, but they have also given me an insight into the industry and taught me invaluable information about the industry itself which has already proven so valuable to me at this early stage of my career.

I found it to be such a bonus to have tutors who actively work in all areas of the industry, the skills, information and even stories they had to tell about their work not only made me more motivated to get a successful career after leaving Brushstroke, but also, I felt that it helped me to reach a higher standard of work as I felt I could understand the standards the industry would expect of me, also due to great encouragement and constructive criticism.

So a massive THANK YOU once again to everyone for giving me such a great time over the past two years, you have really made it possible for me to achieve my goal of being a professional Make Up Artist!! Best Wishes Always, Nikki.”

Katharine Scott

Katharine was a student on our 2 Year Make-Up & Hair course (2008-2010).

“The 2 Year Make-up and Hair Course has given me the confidence and the skills needed to work as a hair and make-up artist.

I have been very lucky with the jobs I have been able to do. I worked as a trainee on Silk (BBC) with Marella Shearer and then went on to work as a trainee for Nick Dudman in his Make-up FX Department at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. I have also continued to work at Warhorse in the west end covering for the wig mistress; a job that started initially as work experience from Brushstroke.

Without the sound teaching and continued support from everyone at Brushstroke I would not be as confident as I am in my chosen career. All of the teachers, as well as Louise, continue to be supportive; always happy to answer any questions I might have. Once again I would like to say thank you so much for everything!! All the Best, Katharine Scott.”
