What inspires your art?

Beauty industry veterans, such as Lisa Eldridge, Melissa Street, Siân Richards, Mary Greenwell, DeShawn Hatcher and Danessa Myricks (to name a few - there are so many more!) never fail to inspire me with their artistic abilities, as well as their passion to educate artists with their invaluable knowledge.

My love for fashion and appreciation for fine art (I have a BA in Art History from Sacramento State) also lends endless inspiration - textures and colors always catch my eye! Music is a huge influence too - it always helps to get my creative juices flowing when I’m on set!

How do you pronounce your name?


Favorite brands to carry in your kit?

Products from pro-based brands such as Embryolisse, Danessa Myricks, Cinema Secrets, Senna Cosmetics, Siân Richards London, Graftobian, and Make Up For Ever always have a coveted place in my kit! I also enjoy working with well-known consumer favorites: Smashbox, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Urban Decay, MAC, Tarte, Laura Mercier, BECCA, Lorac, NARS, and Hourglass.
