I remember being a little girl in my mother’s hair salon being enchanted by all of the glamour on the glossy pages. I would study the styling, try to sketch the photos, or cut and paste them on my bedroom walls. Looking back, it’s no surprise that I find my own photos in the magazines like the ones I long adored.
Today, I am an Art Director, Retouch Educator and PhotograpHER based in San Francisco, California
Whether I am directing a fashion magazine spread, hosting a retouch class or shooting my own beauty editorial, I show up well prepared and well dressed. I’m very detail orientated with execution believing that preparation and serendipity are the keys to success.
I believe that when I prepare, I’m not leaving things to chance but rather I’m allowing room to let God in.
These values have lead me to great blessings in my life. I wouldn’t of imagined I could have achieved all that I have in the short time I’ve been working in the creative field. I hope to continue to work on my craft and my heart so one day I can run a corporation that promotes creativity and education.
Now that I am an ARTreprenuer, I advocate for living an authentic life. I know for a fact that my destiny is connected with the people I’ve encountered. By stepping into my role, I make the impact in a way that only I can. I encourage you to be yourself, not just for you but for everyone else.
So show up and show out.
