About Me

Hello!  Thanks for viewing my MM page.
I'm a freelance makeup artist/hair stylist, and I just relocated from Chicago to Portland, OR.   I am interested in meeting with new phtographers and models.  I am interested in testing, depending on the project. I am available for work on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

The rest of the week you can find me at Brilliant Aveda Salon, in SW Portland Waterfront-near the downtown area doing hair color and cuts. I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Chicago in 2003, and was a color trainer and makeup trainer for many years at a large Aveda Salon with several locations in Chicago.   

Please contact me  thru MM  or
for my rates.

I am also available for bridal showers, engagement photos, weddings, etc...

I also have a facebook page:

I am currently accepting TFP/CD, depending on project.
Possible travel only with paid projects in the U.S(w/paid travel and lodging).

*Hair and makeup on all of the models shown in my pics are done by me(unless otherwise indicated in photo).
