1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Besides makeup, I have a strong interest in biology, especially plants. I’m currently an undergraduate biology major but briefly considered studying agriculture. I love plants and how with some care they grow in front of you. I have a collection of houseplants which I love adding additions too. I never met a plant I didn't like.
2. What are your biggest passions?
There are so many techniques for doing the same thing, and I love hearing about how other artists apply makeup. Learning about different makeup techniques and products is one of my biggest passions. Fine art has been a running passion in my life, and it's what really influenced my makeup artistry. Acrylic painting taught me color theory and how to blend colors together, and these techniques translating into the way I applying makeup.
3. What are your goals for the future?
For the future, I’d love to do more beauty shoots, and fashion-focused projects for clothing brands either photoshoot or runway. The main goal in my career is to take part in projects that speak to me on a deeper level. I love working with photographers, models, and stylists, and creating a finished product. I will continue to follow my passions and do what provides me with happiness.
4. What is your definition of success?
Success means different things to different people, but my definition of success includes making the most of my life, and doing things that bring me joy. Finances are important but only until they make life comfortable, it doesn't provide you happiness or satisfaction. When comfortability meets peace of mind, that is success.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
I’m currently working on beauty shoots to better showcase my work and directing shoots, which allows me to expand my brand in order to better express myself as a creative mind. On a personal level, I'm also working on a garden project for our sunroom and designing garden beds for herbs, succulents, and ferns.
