Born and raised in Calgary, AB I am a prairie girl at heart.
I have had a fascination with makeup and all it’s possibilities since I was young. After working in the corporate arena for a decade, and spending some time travelling I up stakes in 2008 and spent a year abroad in Australia. Upon returning I settled in Vancouver and decided to follow a dream I had and enrolled in the Global Makeup Artistry Program at the Blanche MacDonald Centre (https://www.blanchemacdonald.com/), graduating with honours in January 2011. Yet on a trip home for my dad’s 65th birthday I realized I missed Southern Alberta’s open spaces and sunny blue skies so in late 2011 I moved back to Alberta, first Calgary, then down to Medicine Hat and back up to Calgary.
My philosophy is Art from the Heart and may that radiate in my work and to the people I am and have been fortunate enough to work with.
