Funny story! I am Hairstylist and MUA by trade. I started working with a couple of local photographers in Indianapolis,IN, and a very pushy model tracked me down and demanded that he be painted by me. I honestly had no idea what I was doing, but it was the most creatively freeing experience I have ever had. I realized then that I had fallen in love with creating living art!
Who is your favorite artist and why?
Oh, man this is a truly tough question! I love art in all forms and see it every where, in every thing. I love special FX makeup, and Body Paint. I am currently inspired by some of my favorite Mid-West Painters Aryn Fox (Skin Wars Season 2) and John Wright(Kabuki Body Art.) They are some of the humblest Artists I have ever met and are truly sweethearts! I have had the honor the past few years of working with an amazing Photographer, Kerri Jean she has pushed me to try and do so much out side of my comfort zone, I have grown so much under her leadership and honestly crazy way of creating amazing images out of any and every thing.Her way of finding art and beauty in every thing is truly amazing.
What do you consider some of your biggest accomplishments as an artist and as a person?
My Biggest accomplishments as a person are my two handsome sons, and that I am a retired Roller Girl( Skated with Circle City Derby Girls.)
As an Artist, I am the 2013 RAW Indianapolis Makeup Artist of the Year, I have had several magazine covers, but honestly who is ever happy with there work? I am always growing and want to learn from everyone I meet.
