A HALESOWEN make-up artist has transformed a former Victorian pump house into her own studio.

Georgia Round has opened The Pump House Studio on Forge Lane, Halesowen.

The 24-year-old offers makeup for brides, proms and other special occasions, as well as giving make-up lessons.

The studio is also available for hire for photographers, brides who can have their make-up and hairstyling done, get ready and have pictures taken.

Georgia's dad local businessman Matt Round bought the building to give young entrepreneurs the chance to develop their businesses.

It is also home to two other businesses - Harley Coffee Shop and The Cave barbers.

Matt, who is co-director for an air conditioning firm, spent months and tens of thousands of pounds transforming the former Pump House Cafe, carrying out much of the work himself.

Former Windsor High pupil Georgia, who has worked as a freelance make-up artist and model across the country, said: "When the opportunity came up to renovate the studio we thought why not?

"It's a great place to hold bridal trials.

"Photographers love it, brands can hire it for photoshoots.

"We've already had a wedding and that was really successful.

"The bride hired the studio and had her make-up and hair done as well as using the backdrop for photos.

"It’s fully equipped for photographers, stylists and all creatives.

"It's quite tucked away so I just wanted everyone to know it's here!"

Georgia said it was great to be working alongside two other successful small businesses.

The building dates back to around 1893 when it was the pump house which supplied water from the River Stour to nearby factories.
