cultivating balance & trust in beauty®
Career in Beauty
It is vital that you’re able to trust your makeup artist.
Whether it is a party of one or a party of twenty, I have thoughtfully and meticulously cared for both with the same quality of service. Ultimately, it’s my job to take the worry and work out of the final moments leading into a special event or a night out.
A foundation of nearly 30 years in makeup artistry has shown me how to ease past the challenges an artist will face. This type of experience allows you to relax with confidence knowing you’re in the hands of a professional.
Often I’m asked about my artistic approach. Though I enjoy creating a look that is clean, classic and modern, I place emphasis on understanding the client’s personal vision and comfort level. In this sense, my style is as varied as the thousands of clients I’ve worked with over the years. Through the art of conversation, listening to your needs and delivering on your expectations, I’ll create a makeup style that is exclusively you.
I look forward to spending time with you.
"I wanted to send a very heartfelt thank you for making me and everyone in the bridal party look absolutely stunning at my wedding. I can't tell you how many compliments I received about my makeup - I've never felt more beautiful! You are so talented! I will gladly recommend you to any other brides I know! - Gina, Chicago IL
"I don't know how to thank you enough for making us all look so beautiful!
You understood Jen's vision perfectly even when she didn't know exactly what she wanted. The entire experience was awesome and you were so calm, keeping us calm, on a hectic day with a tight schedule. I know we will be calling you for Ali's wedding as this is the first time she didn't run to the bathroom to wash off her makeup. Mark would like me to see you weekly!" - Susie, Mother of the Bride, Chicago IL
"I am incredibly grateful to you for being a part of our wedding day. Not only did you make me feel incredibly gorgeous, but you were such a wonderful presence in helping the morning go smoothly. From the very first time that I talked to you, I felt that I could trust you--and then once we did the (makeup preview), I was astounded by your artistry. Thank you for understanding the huge mixed bag of emotions that happen on a wedding day and for sharing in those emotions with me to help get me ready to walk down the aisle and do so with such confidence in how I looked. You really do have such an incredible gift." - Haley, Chicago IL
“From the first meeting it was clear that you were the make-up artist for (our daughter's) wedding. Your experience, guidance, understanding of what we were trying to achieve was immediately evident. Throughout the planning process, you continued to offer new ideas, were willing to accommodate the various changes / ideas that naturally are part of imagining that perfect look, and did so reassuringly which rewarded our confidence in you. The calming atmosphere created by you and your team during the day was most welcomed.” - Gary (Father of the Bride), Chicago, IL
"We are so lucky to know you and work with you.
You are truly a shining example in both the makeup and wedding industry, not only with your gorgeous work but the way you handle every situation with professionalism, grace and dexterity. Thank you for being a rock star!"

cultivating balance & trust in EDUCATION®
The EDUCATION, INSPIRATION, and EXCHANGE amongst Makeup Artists has brought great joy to my career for 25 years. As long as I can remember, I've imagined a time and place for artists to gather and learn and hone their skills.
MUSE BEAUTY.Pro is that place and as Co-Owner and Advanced Makeup Educator I have the pleasure of surrounding myself with limitless talents and views in the field of makeup artistry. I am committed to the sharing of products and techniques with both my private clients and the professional and believe whole heartedly in the philosophy of "Pay it Forward"!
