I lived on the west coast, adoring makeup as a teenager due to a close friend who acted in Los Angeles. Many years later, after doing makeup for friends and knowing the impact of good skin care, I realized the depth of the fire in my heart to elevate beauty and be a makeup artist. I realized that it's what I was meant to do. Corporate America had been good to me but I never found any passion there. So, I graduated near the top of my class at the International Spa Institute where the makeup courses ignited my passion profoundly. I finished and obtained my Virginia state license in esthetics but makeup was my huge calling without a doubt, so I launched my freelance business. Following a few years of growth I established my LLC and continued my journey of creativity. I study the works of internationally recognized makeup artists who teach us so much!
On the client side, even touches of makeup will raise confidence, and that energizes me constantly. I love working with other creative professionals that I am blessed to meet and learn from in this industry at photo shoots, on commercial projects and at clients' special events.
My husband and I live in Hampton Roads, Virginia. We pursue health and fitness diligently by working out at Crossfit and eating well ...most of the time!. We also enjoy running a few races each year, which is how we first met in a chance encounter. Yes, I am a romantic at heart!
