I'm a professional makeup artist based in Chicago. For as long as I can remember, I have been captivated by art. My love of drawing and painting eventually turned into a fascination with makeup, which started with my mother's makeup bag. Somewhere between earning a degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Illinois at Chicago and taking makeup appointments on weekends, my greatest passion and hobby turned into a career.
My work as a makeup artist has been the most fulfilling of my life and merges my love of art with my passion for working closely with clients to achieve their vision for their special day. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a person look at themselves in the mirror, smile and love what they see. I have always believed that makeup should enhance natural beauty, making a person look and feel like the best version of themselves possible. While I love beauty makeup, my passion also extends to special effects, avant garde as well as theatrical makeup. I am versatile and available for beauty, fx as well as basic hair styling. I am committed not only to makeup artistry, but also to creating an experience that is memorable, personal and tailored to each client in my chair.
