Hi! I'm a published hair & makeup artist currently based in the Kansas City area. I am a licensed cosmetologist and have been in the beauty industry since 2000, working on photoshoots since 2005. I am also versed in photography assisting (I'm AWESOME at reflectors!), wardrobe styling and pose direction. I have a background in art (watercolors & oils...also a passion for charcoals)...only now I use the human face as a canvas.

I am a Market Trainer for Hourglass Cosmetics. I have also been a Beauty Advisor/Trainer for T3 Micro Styling Tools and Josie Maran. I was a freelance MAC artist Jan 2008 - July 2012 and I also spent a little bit of that time as a part time employee. **BUT, MAC had a change of heart in 2012 and decided it was ok to test on animals (selling in China), therefore I resigned as a guest artist. I am extremely passionate about using only CRUELTY-FREE high end/professional products, no ifs ands or buts.

I have taken over 50 continuing education classes in hair design and makeup application...and I'm always researching new techniques and trying to find new cosmetic lines to experiment with.

I do not accept TFP/TFCD at this time. My rates are standard and reasonable.

I've been dabbling in body paint as well.

Thank you for stopping by smile
