From the Beginning

"Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up."  ~Pablo Picasso

I was an artist as a child and I am extremely blessed to continue that as an adult.  My interest in art started in elementary school, continued into high school where I took private lessons, and followed into college studying art at the University of Minnesota and the University of South Dakota.  Years later I decided to expand my artistic skill and learn the art of Make-up.  I attended Empire Academy of Makeup in southern California and was able to build my portfolio and skill by doing make-up for many beauty and fashion photo shoots.  Once returning to South Dakota I focused on Bridal Makeup and have been doing that for ove 6 years!  In the last 2 years I have been creating amazing commissioned portraits and unique Live Wedding paintings. 

I absolutely love what I do and am so thankful that my passion has also turned into my career.
