Make up Artistry was my first love. Growing up with a mother who was a make up artist and hair stylist, My passion as an artist began at an early age.
At the age of five I began doing hair and make up on my mothers manikin heads and my Barbie dolls. By the age of ten I was practicing on my sisters, cousins, grandmother, and young aunts. At the age of sixteen I had accelerated my skills and began doing make up on female impersonators in downtown Portland Oregon.
I have now evolved into a make up artist in demand for photo shoots, print and commercial work.
Now as a stylist I incorporates my make up artistry into every aspect of my work in the salon
I have also worked as an educator for Mt Hood community college as a cosmetology instructor and and at Image Designers college of cosmetology I have taught advanced makeup application & air brush make up along with an introduction to special effects make up.
Also, I have worked as an educator for mirabella () cosmetics as well as iStraight japanese hair straightening system, ()
Being an educator has helped me strive and achieve top quality work and service. I am in a never ending competition with myself proving that there is always room for improvement.
