My brother and I when we were working in NT/Far Nth Qld on cattle stations 450kms apart, He flew into my station to pick me up and we went into Mount Isa for the weekend after not seeing each other for a few months.

This is one of my pet lambs that I found up the paddock stranded ( dad still thinks I stole it from its mum) I hand reared it and called it Lamby. Lamby is still running around the farm and is around 8yrs of age now. 

Greetings! I'm Amanda, a true country enthusiast with a flair for enhancing natural beauty and a knack for captivating stories. When I'm not wielding my magic in the salon, you can find me in one of three delightful realms:

Firstly, nestled at home with my cherished husband, Michael, our adorable bundle of joy, Gabriel, and our delightful furry companions, Archie and Rosie.

Secondly, amidst the rustic charm of our family's sheep and cattle station, lending a hand to Dad and relishing precious moments with loved ones.

Thirdly, traversing the vast expanse of Australia, either acquiring new skills or honing existing ones, as I thrive on the exhilarating journey of personal and professional growth.

My wanderlust was ignited at 18 when I embarked on a globetrotting adventure, soaking in diverse cultures and experiences. Upon returning, I delved into obtaining my Private Pilots Licence, though my path veered to the rugged landscapes of the Northern Territory and North West Queensland. There, I immersed myself in the life of a Jillaroo and Governess on cattle stations before serendipitously finding myself in Mount Isa, balancing roles as a Dental Nurse and burgeoning Makeup Artist.

However, destiny had other plans, leading me back to my roots in my mid-20s to aid my father on the station. Little did I anticipate my detour to Canberra, initially planned as a short stint to acquire additional certifications. Yet, fate had its way, and here I remain, enchanted by the allure of this vibrant city.

With nearly a decade of enriching experiences under my belt, I stand poised and confident in my ability to accentuate your unique features and unveil your inherent beauty.

Driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and artistic expression, I've amassed over 72 certifications spanning the realms of makeup, cosmetic tattooing, weddings, and beauty. My dedication to continuous improvement has earned me a devoted clientele and garnered respect among peers in the industry.

Reflecting on my journey, I've been fortunate to have several career milestones that stand as testament to my commitment and passion:

  • Securing 4th place nationally in the esteemed Australian Wedding Industry Awards 2022 for Beauty Therapist and Salon.

  • Achieving 1st place as the State Winner in the Australian Wedding Industry Awards for both 2022 and 2023.

  • Clinching 2nd place in the prestigious Brides Choice Awards for ACT and Surrounding Districts in 2019 and 2020.

  • Recognized as a finalist in the Canberra Local Business Awards consecutively from 2020 to 2022, and as a finalist for Business Person of the Year in 2020 and 2021.

  • Multiple nominations for the esteemed Telstra Woman in Business Awards from 2019 to 2022, showcasing my dedication and leadership in the industry.

  • Being featured in prominent publications such as Canberra Weekly and Professional Beauty, further solidifying my standing as a distinguished professional.

  • Earning recognition as a finalist in the Skin Therapist Australia Awards in 2019 and as a finalist for Lash Salon of the Year and Lash Artist of the Year in 2018, underscoring my versatility and expertise.

As I embark on each new endeavor, I remain steadfast in my commitment to excellence, eager to explore new horizons and continue making waves in the ever-evolving world of beauty and artistry.
