Founder and Academy Principal, Melanie has over 18 years experience in the media industry and the contacts to show for it. In 2013, she launched BAMM, an exceptional training academy for aspiring media makeup artists, and the first of its kind in the South West. Key to her business model is a strong and diverse team of tutors, recognised makeup artists in their chosen field who want to pass on those skills and artistry to another generation. Alongside Peter Swords King, Melanie has built one of the most highly regarded media makeup academies in the world. Helping to deliver several courses across BAMM, Melanie works hard to ensure her students are as best equipped as possible for life beyond the classroom.
“I am determined that each of my students goes on to fulfil and uphold their dream career in what is a very challenging industry. If a BAMM student completes their training here and leaves us confident, happy and ready for whatever path they wish to pursue, then we’ve done a good job.”
