Andrea’s career in SFX makeup started 9 years ago when she was asked to assist on a production of Sweeney Todd in The Everyman Theatre Cork.
The lead makeup artist made it look so easy yet so effective which had Andrea hooked. After the success of Sweeney Todd, she was asked to return for a second production of the play in the Cork Opera house the following year. At this stage Andrea knew she wanted to pursue this side of makeup further so she went on to train in Dublin at the Belvedere Academy with Christian Kotey. Amazing opportunities were to follow – Four years in the Nightmare realm, Operas, photoshoots and numerous teaching jobs.
