My earliest memories center around art! Growing up with both parents as internationally recognized artists, creativity was a part of everyday life. That being said, my parents urged me to become a lawyer, despite receiving a full art scholarship to college. After one year of pre-law, I knew that wasn’t going to be my path! Shortly thereafter, I enrolled in Esthetics Training at The Aveda Institute where Horst Rechelbacher, the creator of Aveda, was one of my talented instructors. Thus began my journey into the world of beauty! I’ve worn many hats during my 18 year career but there was always something missing… Art! I decided to add another skill to my resume and received training for Cosmetic Tattooing from Nouveau Contour Academy. It has been one of the best decisions of my life and allows me to combine both my love for esthetics with my artistic talent. Robert Henri, an american painter, once said, “Art can be a powerful voice for anything, and artists should be the people that keep track of the unnoticed adventures underlying the routine of daily life. Art is the means to jolt ourselves and others awake to the wonder of being alive!” I strive to live my life by his words and create beauty wherever possible!
