I have worked as a makeup artist for over 20 years in Montreal and Winnipeg. I studied theatrical makeup artistry at La Salle College in Montreal and got a job straight out of school as a makeup artist for a modelling agency. After 3 years in Montreal, I decided to move home where I pursued my dream of working for MAC Cosmetics.
I have done makeup for numerous celebrities such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Burton Cummings, Simple Plan, Julie Benz just to name a few. I specialize in fashion, special effects, boudoir and bridal makeup. After 8 years as an artist and in management at MAC, I decided to pursue other interests and focus on my freelance business. I was the make-up instructor for MC College in 2009 and was the key artist for many Nygard fashion shows/shoots and other fashion shoots and shows throughout Manitoba. I have also had the privilege of working as Key artist for the 2003 Nygard catalogue in the Bahamas as well as doing makeup for the Winnipeg Junos. My dream has always been to work alongside other artists, create beauty and help women feel better about themselves and The Artist Groupe is everything I have wanted and more. We have been the official hair and makeup team for the Wonderful Wedding Show 2 years in a row and are very excited to be there again in 2018!
My team of artists are some of the best in the city and I am so honoured to have them come along with me on this wild ride! I want to thank my hubby, Derek, my amazing kids and my friends and family for supporting me and my crazy business idea!
