Meet Nalii our Diploma of Screen and Media Teacher in Cairns


I am a hair, makeup and special effects artist with 15 years of artistic experience, including fine & commercial arts.


I work predominately in Tropical North Qld, but I also work interstate and nationally. I have the heart of a gypsy and a thirst for new life experiences and am currently working towards achieving my goal of working internationally.


Magic, creativity and inspiration are what I bring to my classroom. I dream big! Although I have received feedback about being naturally gifted, I truly believe hard-work, passion and the desire to learn are the keys to success. I see all my students as aspiring artists and love to share my creative wisdom and encourage them to be the best make-up artist they can be.


My years in the industry have given me the opportunity to really refine my skills and I use a synergistic blend of everything I have learnt on my journey to produce my art, no matter what the canvas. I love to envisage a creative project and see it through the creative process of design, create, apply and direct all the way to concept completion. I have a broad range of skills including:


Beauty, glamour makeup 

Prosthetics & SPFX Makeup

Film and Photography Makeup

Character and Makeup Design

Styling and Fashion Design

Jewelry, accessory and prop manufacture

Sculpture and Marquette design and manufacture

Fine art, drawing, sketching and digital art

Photography and Lighting

Art Directing and Film Experience
