THE NIGHT OF

Riz Ahmed seen here wearing a custom wig designed and created by wigmaker Amanda Miller for HBO.  Due to the shooting schedule, hair department head, Sherry Heart, commissioned me to create a wig to match Riz' own hair styled as 'Nas'.  

This series couldn't be more timely.  A thriller brilliantly offering up a slice of life in NYC current day.  

CINDY SHERMAN

After a short trip to Tokyo for my daughter's 'sweet sixteen spring break' in Japan it's lovely to arrive home to this look at the wigs I worked on over 4 months with the artist CINDY SHERMAN.  Her new work will open at Metro Pictures gallery on May 5, 2016.  Its been a thrilling process designing, creating and styling wigs for her.  I hope you'll visit the gallery to see her work if you can!
