artistic intent

​Dance, music, and art is everything to me.

My loud personality and style led me to San Francisco State University where I cultivated advanced sewing skills, textile knowledge, fashion illustration, historical costuming, and pattern making  while pursing degrees in Fashion Design and Dance. The Bay Area fueled a new passion for the beautifully bizarre and a constant itch to artistically challenge society with visually stimulating experiences

After college I moved back to LA to study the circus arts as a both a performer and costumer. The cirque world opened doors to work and grow with companies like Insomniac Events and Universal Studios, who produce the the largest festivals, events, and stage shows in the world -such as the Electric Daisy Carnivals and Halloween Horror Nights. Working massive events advanced my costuming skills by introducing LED and lighting, mechanical puppeteering, stilt/aerial/fire costuming, and varied mediums to create dimensional garments.

In August 2017 I received my Beauty Makeup Artistry Certification from Lilit's Makeup Studio, with the intent to master yet another set of applicable design skills.

I am currently studying Cosmetology at Paul Mitchell Sherman Oaks to obtain my California Cosmetology License.
