Welcome to a conversation on Healthy Beauty

As a makeup artist for the past 16 years my chair has been a safe space to have meaningful conversations, joyful laughs, tears, and a place to talk about all things beauty. I have now created this space, for all of you, to share and join in on the conversation. I believe beauty is all encompassing; mind, body and soul. There is no “right way” to apply makeup, everyone has their own style and technique — this space is to share my secrets with all of you.

My journey began working with real women and that left a soft spot in my heart. I have been fortunate to have worked every avenue of the beauty industry from a makeup counter, salon, bridal, runway, editorial to being a signed artist with top model agencies for celebrities and beauty campaigns. As a professional artist, it is easy to work with someone who is paid for their face...working with real, everyday women comes with great diversity in technique, skin tones, textures and ethnicities. I pride myself as an artist that can work on any skin tone, eye shape and personality.

I am so thrilled to share my experience with all of you and now expand my services into makeup education. It has been a long term goal of mine to get to this point, where I can balance my celebrity roster, on set work, and have a private studio along with spreading makeup education to anyone in the world. Private Makeup Lessons can be done in the comfort of your own home, virtually, or in person at a studio space in Nashville, TN. After living and working as a artist in Chicago, IL for 15 years, I relocated to Nashville, TN one year ago.

Makeup has been my medium for many years in connecting with women. I believe in lifting one another up, supporting, and championing women. Through artistry I spread the message of self love, self care, and helping so many over the years feel comfortable in their own skin. The joy of a client looking for the first time in the mirror after a makeup session is priceless. I am looking forward to empowering so many of you to interpret my techniques, become inspired, build confidence in your own natural beauty, and give yourself grace by loving and owning who you are.

Peace & Love
