~~~~~~~~~~~~HELLO THERE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
i've had a little family emergency setback, but now I'm crazy trying to get stuff together from now until July 10th. I'm open everyday till then to make crazy, cool, amazing, gorey stuff. Let me know if you are interested. no idea is too crazy, the crazier the better. Let's do something cool! death to boring beauty makeup! Blah!
**Working Selective TF- for projects that are AMAZING!**
*rates at this point are kit fee and/or gas money*
Negotiable based on type of makeup, distance, supplies


and sometimes i make things like this. yes, i made those super cool wolverine claws and the rest of the costumes.
that's me in the blue paint. i'm a dork. whoop.

i've done a lot of beauty and straight makeup since i came back to nashville, and i am now looking to expand into my true loves of makeup; fantasy, high fashion, and even bringing in gore. here are a few of my ideas, tell me what you think and if you are interested. i'm looking for models and photographers for these projects as of now.


and about me........

I am best known for my imagination and ability to create ANYTHING out of ANYTHING. I love and enjoy playing with colors and shapes, and enjoy my work most when it tells a story.

I love fantasy work and period work because it tells a specific story of time, place, and character.

BUT, i also LOVE gore and horror makeups because they give me the chance to really push limits and make something look frightening real.

I am trying to make contacts with models who don't mind getting dirty and ruffled up for the their art, who don't mind getting messy for the shot, who want to push limits with their work, who want to say something meaningful. or just look really really cool. seriously, beautiful collaborations can do so much.

I never flake out, am habitually early, and always polite and professional. I was raised to be a good southern gal, and i always am, yes ma'am.
