Hi there, thank you for checking out my site! It means a lot that you're here. Goodness, I must admit that starting this business was a daunting step for me BUT my big cousin Kim always says, if it's not exciting and scary, then it's not worth doing! Well, this venture is both exciting and scary so I must be on to a great thing!
Fashion has always been a huge part of my life. I get a thrill from creating new outfits from my existing wardrobe and love working out how many different ways I can wear an item...but along with a love of fashion and style, I have a true passion for music.
I am a professional singer.
Born into a musical family it was a given that I would follow my parents path in the Entertainment Industry. As young as 5, I was singing on stage with my gorgeous Mother Celine Toner and know just about every green room in the country! Everything about the stage fascinated me as a child. The feathers, the sequins, the pops of colour! I fell in love with Mums 'stage closet', it was my go to 'dress up' closet haha!
Classically trained at St Marys College in Auckland, I won the prestigious Stella Maris Singing Cup as a senior student and at 16, put together my first international vocal group called EVE. We sang classical crossover numbers and wore a collection of glamours outfits. I styled the group and got a mega thrill from it. It was a wild ride! We recorded and released the Ricki Morris' hit "Nobody Else', had appearances in London, opened for Lionel Ritchie and sang our way around NZ.
Afterwards, myself and fellow EVE member, Cassandra McCowan formed a pop duo. We sang the National Anthem for Australia at The Bledisloe Cup, opened for STING at his one off Synchronicity Concerts in NZ and then opened for Rod Stewart at the prestigious Mission Concert. In 2011 I went to China to perform with Mum and it was there that MO GHRA was formed, our own Mother/Daughter Celtic Duo (Mum is Scottish). We recorded a beautiful album together entitled 'Alba to Aotearoa' and perform at specialist Celtic events in NZ, Australia and China. Solo, I've been blessed with countless, stunning opportunities such as performing the NZ anthem for champion boxer, Joseph Parker, the Rugby League World Cup and corporate events. I love to sing!!!
I style the image of every musical project I'm part of and over the years, there have been challenges, lessons and incredible highs! I've learnt how to accentuate my best features and those of my fellow performers. I've learnt how to create magic through clothing. I've learnt how to tell a story without speaking. I've learnt how to shine. Anyone can, with the right costume, smoke and mirrors!
