*IATSE 709 Member (Makeup Artistry)*
*IATSE 873 Permit (Makeup Artistry)*
I started learning about makeup artistry when I was 13 years old. I volunteered at a spa after school because I was interested in the industry and all things beauty. The owner who specialized in makeup artistry took me under her wing and I became her apprentice. From there I started working on local films and television shows in St. John's, it eventually led to my own company and I now do a full range of work from beauty clients to special effects.
I studied special effects and HD makeup in Toronto in 2013 and I studied bridal hair design in Toronto in 2014. I now take clients and freelance work in both Toronto, Ontario and St. John's, Newfoundland. I am currently a union member for makeup artistry in the Newfoundland IATSE 709 and I am a permittee with IATSE 873 in Ontario.
I love meeting new people and making clients feel beautiful, its the best part of the job. I find that sometimes the right makeup techniques can really, truly change someones life. I enjoy helping people and I love the feeling of taking care of my clients.
