About me
I am an experienced makeup artist looking to do PAID work as well as some SELECTIVE TFP/CD.

I have experience and training in Beauty, Fashion/Runway, Commercial, Print, Theater, Film/Tv and SpFX. I am skilled in the art and science of light and dark and color theory.  I am very cleanly and hygienic in my methods, and I use professional photo friendly products.  I also teach makeup workshops and offer private lessons.

I have a positive and professional attitude. I am reliable and punctual.  I work well with all types of people.  I'm very creative and I will do everything in my power to help you achieve your vision.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments... I'm looking forward to collaborating with some of the talented people on here.
