It was almost twenty years ago when I summoned the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented group of professional make up artists I’ve ever worked with at one time! I started as a young and hungry artist with M.A.C. Cosmetics back when make up was art and to me, magic. It was exhilarating, and it was so much fun- I was a sponge! I paid attention. I watched, I shadowed, and I gobbled up what I could in terms of technique, style and quality. Finding my flow and finally making what worked for my hands my own! As I expanded my horizons in beauty and wellness, I immersed myself in holistic studies and aromatherapy while living in Houston, Texas, and moved away from the cosmetic retail industry for good. I found myself much happier to focus one on one through personal care, beauty, commercial and bridal make up services. I continued to hone my skin care knowledge, and make up artistry and for a solid five years I was painting hundreds of faces and waxing a multitude of bodies on the Las Vegas strip. It was an exciting and very clarifying time in the desert oasis and I am grateful for the way it sharpened the quality of my overall skill, speed and technique. I realized I wanted more Life and more connection, Vegas was not going to give that to me, and it was time to wrap it up.
It’s been almost a decade since I’ve been back in the Bay Area, and it has been the happiest time of my life! Planting solid new roots down in Oakland has been a joy. I am clearer than ever, and am most excited to share with you what I know, what I love about being in beauty & wellness, and how good it is to feel good in our own skin! I am Home and here to stay, ready to deliver impeccable service, remind you how good it is to feel good, and always having fun along the way! Welcome to my little piece of heaven. I look forward to connecting with you.
