 Bio

 
 
Born and raised in New York, I'm an artist that draws my inspiration from the many cultures and lifestyles found in the city. From canvas painting, to sewing, to henna tattoos and all sorts of other crafts, I love finding new and innovative ways to express my creativity. Over time, makeup has become my true passion.
 
My affinity for the visual arts dates as far back as my earliest moments holding a pencil. I would sketch and doodle on anything I could get my hands on. It was receiving a Snazaroo kit from my mom at sixteen that really set me on a path that would eventually lead to my career as a makeup artist. Upon getting that gift, I  quickly became an avid face and body painter. I would create beautiful and elaborate designs on any of my sisters who would sit still long enough. Soon after, I decided to develop my skills as a face painter by entertaining at events for four years.
 
I decided to make the transition to makeup as a student at the Make Up For Ever Academy NY’s Masters program and graduated at the top of my class. I have honed my skills to include everything from natural, flawless looks to dramatic special-effects makeup. I always try my best to bring fresh and striking new ideas and creativity to the field of makeup artistry.
