“Hair and makeup artistry isn’t just my career and passion… It’s what makes me happy.
I love people and people love to feel beautiful, this is why I’ve spent most of my life focused on making people look and feel the best that they can!
I believe in enjoying life, one memory at a time. A simple thing like badly applied makeup or a poorly executed hair style, may detract from the experience of these moments. Given how scarce these special moments occur, this drives me to help my clients shine with self confidence. A little “polishing” transforms into so much more. It’s not just hair and makeup… it’s confidence.”
