     Makeup Artist | Face Painter | Body Painter


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 to as soon as I could hold a pencil. I would sketch and doodle on anything I could get my hands on. Getting a Snazaroo kit from my mom at 16 really set me on a path that would eventually lead to my career as a makeup artist. I quickly became an avid face and body painter. I would create elaborate designs on whichever one of my sisters would sit still long enough. Soon after, I decided to develop my skills as a face painter by entertaining at children's parties for a few 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.
