A visually stimulated person since forever, my creativity has paved a path of love and understanding of great aesthetics, which has seen me dabble in make up and design in all facets. 

Make up began for me like most pre-teen girls, playing with the drips & drabs of their Mum's "gift with purchase" freebies. Things escalated quickly from there, I obtained my Certificate in Make Up Artistry with Elly Lukas in Melbourne and so my first artistry gig began at M.A.C in 2009 at just 16 years old, one of their youngest employees globally.

I further developed my soft and blended aesthetic as a Skin and Colour Specialist in Melbourne at Mecca Cosmetica, Australia's exclusive supplier of NARS, and home to some of the most renowned international cosmetic brands & products. This extensive knowledge of cosmetics and a variety of products has resulted in a kit second to none, giving you access to some of the best products commonly used by industry "insiders".

Exposure to multiple brands and products, working alongside leading artists and top end training enriched both my experience and capability. Like anything - practice makes perfect, and so fully booked back-to-back weekend appointments from open to close became the norm. This lead to my role as Beauty Editor of womens Porsche publication, Woman With Drive, where I covered all things beauty - see "Published Work" to read the articles.

With 8 years experience under my belt, I've since gone on to work as a freelance artist for special occasions, weddings, photoshoots/editorial and TV.

I work to a philosophy that translates through my results - make up exists to enhance natural structure and compliment features, not to mask it. Skin that looks like skin with a healthy, dewy glow, facial symmetry and blended contours & colour is at the premise of my work.

This means, you'll leave looking like you - but on a really good day!
