I was trained in Esthetics at the Aveda Institute. This gave me a strong safety, sanitation, and skincare background. I was able to combine that experience and its holistic view with my fine arts training. I am internationally published, with runway experience. I have worked as a key artist, leading teams of other makeup artists to ensure a cohesive look for shows. In addition, I have had the great pleasure to travel and learn through attending demonstrations and workshops with some of big names in the industry.
An artistic jack-of-all-trades, I approach my work with creativity, adaptability and knowledge gleaned through a life filled with art.
I started my makeup artistry through a strong background of fine arts coupled with my own experience in front of the cameras and canvases as a model. I apply my sculpture, painting, costuming, and even puppetry experience to provide a truly unique approach to the artistry of makeup. The way in which I work reflects this painterly and sculptural background, both in color-theory and textural nuances.
Do you have a concept that you would like to shoot, or a vision that you would like realized? Contact me, and we'll see if we can make it happen. I am equally excited and capable when it comes clean, classic and elegant looks, or for creative challenges and effects.
