Years on and that love affair continues. Working as a makeup artist and hair stylist for over 12 years, I have meticulously refined and redefined my skills. For what some would call an obsession."

"My ambitions are to continue working with my clients and to use my experience as a positive reminder. Makeup should not be something that defines worthiness or beauty. It should be a tool to remind us of the worthiness and beauty that is already there."
