Hair and Makeup Artist
I am a self-taught makeup and hair artist with a passion for creating. I studied Art at Virginia Commonwealth University and like to approach makeup and hair like a classical artist. I began my career teaching art to high schoolers only to become a stay-at-home mom for a hot minute. Craving creativity, I reached out to a local makeup artist and began my journey into becoming a professional myself. After taking classes, studying other professionals, and good old fashioned practice on friends and family, I stepped out on my own in 2015. I free-lance working on weddings, editorial photoshoots, and TV work. On week days when I don't have a brush in my hand you can find me homeschooling my three kiddos, hanging out with the hubs, reading often, and listening to my favorite True Crime podcasts.
I CAN'T IMAGINE DOING ANYTHING ELSE
I have had many jobs in my life. I started working in a jewelry store, then as a high school art teacher. After doing that for a couple years I found myself in a pottery studio. I took a long break to start a family and be a stay-at-home momma. In 2015 this art medium came into my life, and I have never looked back.
Hair and makeup are my creative outlet. To me it is ART. I can't imagine doing anything else!
