About Me

I am a professional make-up artist for over 9 years. I create faces for TV, film, print, special events and retail. The face has always been my devoted muse.

My work has taken me all over the US and internationally. I WILL travel anywhere.

Professionalism is something that is important to me and also brings my work to it's full potential. My motivation and creativity will paint around every detail, all inspired by your personal vision.

Please contact me for rates and availability.

I look forward in being YOUR make-up artist!
