About Me

I am a Napa Valley based freelance makeup artist living and enjoying life with my hubby and our two teenagers, Olivia and Sam. I've been doing makeup for over 20 years, working for companies like Clinique (in my early years) and more recently, NARS. 

In the last ten years, I've had the privilege of doing mostly freelance work and traveling all over Northern California. I look forward to the day when a client books me for a beautiful, tropical destination… hint, hint! 

Makeup is a passion of mine, dating back to my days as a young girl where I would watch in awe as my mother "put her face on." I loved witnessing the transformation she made and I felt so inspired seeing her radiate confidence and beauty. 

This is my goal for every person getting their makeup done by me. I appreciate the vulnerability it takes to sit in my makeup chair and allow me to be creative. Whether you’re a bride, a high-school senior, a celebrity or a friend wanting to learn the latest tricks-of-the-trade, it's important to me that you feel beautiful both on the inside as well as the outside.
