I am an accomplished Los Angeles based makeup artist with over 20 years experience.

My training began with Make Up Designory in Burbank, where I studied beauty, character, and special effects makeup. I have always had a passion for the arts, and love working on a wide variety of projects. From working with brides, special events, award shows, photo shoots, to makeup on films, commercials and television shows. Currently, I am contracted with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. I started with Jedi Training Academy, and the infamous Aladdin, A Musical Spectacular just to mention a few, and now I have recently been recreating Marvel characters at the park! I am always excited for any new challenges and adventures. I have kept my looks always fresh and clean from working with Bobbi Brown, traveling in the southern California region, teaching and consulting women for over 15 years. My greatest gratification comes from fostering confidence in women and men. Helping them embrace their natural beauty. It's important to make any client feel good about themselves, and collaborating looks for them that are fitting for the job.

Now that I am in SLO County, I am continuing my career more on the bridal side or whatever comes my way, I am never limited. I will be attending SLO Mixers and other events. I hope that I will be able to meet you in person.

I would have to say the UNCONDITIONAL PASSION to meeting the clients EXACT needs. I love to connect with my bride on more comfortable, personal level. Its important to me, for her to let her guard down, and be able to share with me, what she likes and what she LOVES during the application. I insist that my clients follow a long during a consultation, with a mirror always in their hand. So, I can reach the look that she has always imaged for her special day. As a person I would never want someone to dress me in something that makes me feel uncomfortable, then not be able to tell them, with the fear of (thinking) "I don't want to hurt their feelings". That is why I take the time for my clients to relax, laugh and just play, because, makeup is FUN! Getting ready is half the fun with your wedding party. I make sure that deliver that service.
