With a strong passion for philanthropy, the arts, and doing for others, she has always strived to not only create beautiful, abstract work, but also build a strong rapport with her clients, and help them also to strive to be their best. Starting her career as a plus model, she noticed the critical industry she was in, and essentially started doing makeup as a way to help her fellow models, plus and non plus, feel their best despite the sometimes unrealistic critiques they would experience. As time progressed, the requests for makeup started rolling in, so she started to calculate her moves and brand herself. Although she enjoyed modeling, helping others superseded the selfish fulfillment she was receiving from modeling, so she changed gears and committed to building her business, while maintaining to keep the message of positivity and self love, at its foundation. Now close to 13 years in the business, she has amassed a large following, opened a store front studio, is a regular on her local news station, mentors local students, and has been showcased in numerous publications, to name a few of her accomplishments. At the core however her purpose above all is to spread love, and show others that with hard work and passion, they too can accomplish anything they put their mind to.
