“I started doing looks 7 years ago in LA with my friends and made shooting portraits of looks an integral part of my self-expression. Since I began, I have moved to New York, started a career as a makeup artist and now freelance various makeup/nightlife jobs…and often collaborate with designers, dancers, models and other artists.
I’m inspired by fine art, nature, and architecture mixed with a bit of drag and theater. My approach is an organic process of creating where I design my look in the moment and the outcome is always something different and new. I don’t have a particular look that is my one signature; but rather several elements/motifs such as triangular paper shapes, butterfly wings, pearls, etc. which recur often in my designs and are distinctly my own in the way I use them. I have many projects in the works…none of which I can talk about 😜, but this will be an exciting year!”
