New York City based Make-Up Artistry Specialist, Master Hairstylist, and Beauty Visionary.
Focusing on using the face as a canvas in designing the enhanced image of one’s beauty is a trademark of my artistry. Sketching and painting as soon as I could hold a pen and pencil, I began taking art classes at a young age following in my father and brothers' footsteps. This training and eventual 'second nature' understanding of lighting, shapes, colors, and textures directly translates into the foundation in which I view and design the faces of my beautiful clientele today. A licensed cosmetologist in both New York and Massachusetts, I am grateful to have also been introduced and gained priceless knowledge from leading industry innovators such as Academy Award Winning Makeup Artists, Dick Smith and Kevin Haney. The insight gained in these early years was paramount to forming a relentless work ethic, utmost attention to detail, as well as a specific vision true to my artistry today.
My passion and drive constantly fuel the desire to grow, learn, and share with others. With special attention to the Art of Beauty, Natural Skin Care, and Brow Design, I strive to create an unsurpassed beauty experience. In addition, I work closely with Emmy nominated Special Effects Makeup Team, Prosthetic Renaissance. Teaming up with owner Mike Marino and Art Director Mike Fontaine for the transformation of Heidi Klum, the proclaimed "Queen of Halloween" into Jessica Rabbit on Halloween 2015 and the Heidi Clones Halloween 2016, featured on multiple media outlets including Wendy Williams, E!News, Ellen, and People Magazine. As the Key Makeup Artist for Amazon's "Style Code Live" I enjoy being behind the scenes and on camera, using my artistry to collaborate with an amazing style team in cultivating top beauty trends and showcasing how to interpret them into our lives every day.
I am thrilled to bring my passion and vision for the art of beauty to you in my journey through creation, imagination, and vision. I am honored and privileged to share my artistry with you!
