If I could bottle anything I would bottle magic… I am all about tapping into the magic of this life and feeling the magic of truly living pulse through my veins. I like to believe in what most people cannot comprehend. It would be a magical elixir that activates the souls creativity and tunes you into everything that swirls all around us.
I remember at age 17 being completely lost as to what direction I wanted my life to flow towards, so I took that as a cue to take a gap year and waitress. During a lunch break I opened the newspaper and there was an advertisement for an Art Directing Course for Film and Theatre. I knew instantly that was the sign I had been looking for. Soon after embarking on my studies I realised that fashion was calling me and that I was far more drawn towards that mode of makeup. The M.A.C store became my obsession. I fired up all my passion for artistry, people and my vision and after 4 years with the company I had attained my dream job. At that point in time I was also one of the youngest Senior Artists for M.A.C in the world. I have been hugely blessed to realise my dreams of working at international fashion weeks, Milan, London and Paris working with many of the artists I idolised. Kabuki, Alex Box, Val Garland and many many more. Designers I followed avidly, I was now working with backstage. Vivienne Westwood, DSquared, Giles, Alexander McQueen. All my existing makeup dreams had become my reality.
