I am a fine artist, professional makeup artist, ordained minister, published poet, DIY gal and migraineur. I became interested in clean makeup after working in the cosmetic industry for over 15 years (Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, Laura Mercier, you name it!)
I began suffering from chronic migraines, which forced me to retire from my beloved job as a full-time makeup artist but then allowed me to pursue my current work as a self-employed full time fine artist (primarily, paint, mixed media and photography).
In the summer of 2017, I had a three month bout of dermatitis akin to rosacea with no known "cause" and with oral antibiotics the only treatment. I stepped back and really looked at the ingredients in cosmetics––ingredients that are unregulated by our government and often ILLEGAL in other countries. I started a spread sheet, reached out to others for recommendations and then decided to expand the love and beauty that comes with makeup that is so pure you could eat it (I wouldn't but, you probably could).
As an non-denominational ordained minister, I wish to continue my journey by marrying people who believe love is love, no matter who you are!
