"To me, make up is art. It allows me to enhance the natural beauty inherent in each person I am working with.
It fascinates me time and time again how going with the flow of a face and just highlighting the features transforms not only the image of a person, but also their view on themselves.
There is nothing more fulfilling to me than presenting the result and seeing their happy faces reflecting back.
It is the perfect way of reconnecting my models with a feeling of beauty and self love while at the same time, creating a piece of art together with them."
About the artist:
Growing up, I've always had a passion towards creativity. Throughout high school, a few of the subjects I took part in were painting, graphics, design and drama. My friends would ask me to do their hair and makeup for their school balls and special occasions. It was something I had always enjoyed doing but never thought of ever pursuing it as a career path.
I ended up joining the corporate world. Working in an office doing sales for many companies while modeling and acting on the side. After a while, that got boring! I thought to myself, I definitely did not want to sit in an office for the rest of my life and I would rather be behind the scenes where I could watch all the action!
It is a tough decision changing career paths, I spent a lot of time and did a lot of research to find the best makeup school for me to attend. I wanted a school that would teach makeup and hair styling without having to take two separate courses. "The Makeup School NZ " made it easy for me to decide after having read that they taught makeup, hair styling and even special effects which was an extra bonus! It was the best decision I ever made, graduating with a Diploma in Film, TV, Fashion and Special Effects and received 'TMS Best All Rounder Award'.
Since graduating, it has been a privilege to work on multiple TV series, short films, commercials, theater productions and fashion shoots. I also gained experience doing hair and makeup for weddings and special occasions by freelancing for other companies. Now, I am proud to lead an amazing team of talented artists under my brand in order to provide top quality results for all kinds of special occasions.
