Voluntary Work Wanted

Jan 2014 onwards

I am writing to you to enquire whether there is any possibility of obtaining some voluntary work experience working alongside the makeup artists within your theatres. I am 18 years old and currently a student at City College in Norwich, having completed an extra year taking some additional GCSE's. I am now on the Hair and Media Make-Up level 2 Diploma course, following which I intend to apply to the London College of Fashion to study for a BA (Hons) in Hair, Make-up & Prosthetics for Performance.

I have attached some samples of recent pieces of my work which I have achieved single handed through hours of research and practice, all of which was self taught. I have had many compliments on my work including a retweet on one of my photos on twitter from a walking dead fan page. I have also been asked by many people to do their makeup for fancy dress parties and events.

I live locally, and would really like to broaden my knowledge by shadowing someone already working in the industry ( I am happy to do this on an unpaid basis).
I would welcome the opportunity to show you some pieces of my work and to discuss any opportunities you may be able to offer me.
I look forward to hearing from you,
