After a long career in Business, Marketing and Branding moving to an artistic venture was an easy change for me. I have spent years making other people's idea's come to life and stay true to the original concept. That is what branding is - taking a concept and making it a house hold name. I have worked with brands such as Sinclair Oil, Subaru of America, TiVo and Broadway Across America.
I have always loved make up and everything that comes with it. From the simple to the most complex - I love it all. Being allowed to really experiment with my craft, pushing boundaries and creating pure art - that is life.
During a shoot or at an event the people around only see the beautiful results of the work the stylists have put in - they don't know the hours of planning and work involved - this is the meaning of success in the world of beauty. If it looks effortless, you have done your job.
I have done make up my whole life, my formal training is from a MAC Cosmetics program at the Taylor Andrews Academy in Salt Lake City, Utah. I learn more and more every day about what make up can do. It seems that each day I am amazed all over again that I am lucky enough to have found this path for myself.
