Cape Town artist Fiona Gentry discovered her talent for painting faces while at art school. She abandoned her art studies and enrolled at a make-up school. While there she was encouraged to try her hand at hairstyling.

She then began her apprenticeship at one of the Cape Town’s top hair salons. This is where she was introduced to the world of fashion. Before long she was called to do hair and make- up for photographic shoots…..little did she know that this was the beginning of her long and illustrious career.

Doing both hair and make-up has allowed her to travel internationally. Her international contributions include Norway Cosmo, Dutch Beaute´, Harper’s Bazaar and Russian Vogue.

When not painting faces and styling hair in a photographic studio ….this artist can be found painting canvasses in her own studio.
