I love hair and make up! And I love creating unique looks. I'm a wildly ambitious, highly optimistic, talented freelance artist who lives to create beautiful faces, styles that translate emotion, looks that transport the viewer. I'm inspired by the uniqueness of individual projects and have a genuine talent for capturing their essence in film or print. I've been styling hair and make up since I was very young. It was my passion through grade school and what I pursued in college. I never lost that passion; I found the best way to apply it is as a freelance artist. I am a licensed cosmetologist both in Illinois and Missouri, currently managing The Mane Attraction ,a bridal salon in Collinsville, IL. A blend of creative vision, style, and bold design are words my clients often used to describe my work. My goal is to be the designer for all your needs. Having you choose me to style models for your print, Web, and video media, for your company or special event means a lot to me. Having you choose me repeatedly means even more. It's my honor to produce the designs that represent your organization and ideas. Hair and make up design is something that I love and enjoy, whether it's advertising, informational, or personal and whether it's for print, video or the Web. Let me be the freelance artist you always call on.

I'm skilled in airbrush application, which often reduces the retouching needed, and don't mind pitching in to help with whatever the production requires. From coffee runs to holding reflectors, I'm a big believer in using teamwork to make each shoot run as smoothly as possible.

*A Note to the Models: Please make sure you arrive on time and with cleansed skin & no trace of makeup. Groomed brows, clean hair & manicured/pedicured nails.

*A Note to the photographers: I expect to receive images within 1 MONTH from the Photo Shoot, Edited, High Quality. I cannot use an image for my physical portfolio that is not large enough or with your Logo/WaterMark on the photos. I don't mind your logo on web sized images, actually I prefer it. I love to help network for other people as well as myself

If requesting TFP, please be advised I prefer to do both make up and hair, so the resulting image will be of maximum benefit to my portfolio.
