- “I have been an artist my whole life. I have always loved drawing, painting, sculpting, creating art out of anything I could find, especially recyclables and of course, hair and makeup. Going to college with a focus in art was always what I wanted to do. After completing one year at the University of Southern Indiana, I realized I was not fulfilled. Graphic Design was not for me, I knew I did not want to be an art teacher and I did not want to make art to sell it as my career. After much deliberation, I decided to leave college to attend makeup school. To this day I have zero regrets. I followed my heart and am completely satisfied with my decision. Doing art on a human canvas is a beautiful thing. To say I love being a professional makeup artist would be an understatement.
…What Inspires me?
Earth, space, animals, nature, the human body, people in public, architecture, history, television, trash, culture, work by other artists, myself… Anything or anyone that catches my eye, makes me look twice or makes me think and wonder is what inspires me the most.”
