This is how I got started!

For those who don't know me, I thought I would show you how I was lead to doing make-up.
Since I was a child I was an artist. I started drawing from when I was little, teaching myself how to draw, sketch, paint and even sculpt. I have had very little training in art, other than training with a professional watercolourist as well as a fine art painter in my first year of College. Other than that my art education has been limited to sporadic life drawing classes, here and there.

I have always had a passion for music, art and most of all fashion, so it wasn't really a surprise when I took my love for all these things and transferred my painting skills to the face.

I decided three years ago that make-up was what I wanted to do and since then I haven't looked back.

Though make-up is what I do full time, I still paint and want to start exhibiting my work. I try and paint as often as I can, though lately I haven't had much time.

Here are a few of my paintings over the years. As and when I finish more paintings I will post them up.

I have more where those came from but will put them up another day!
