MY BEAUTIFUL ART CAREER
SHOW & TELL
"these essays and thoughts are part of my artistic EXPLORATION of this world - what it means to be a makeup artist building an art career using a medium that many don't consider to be an art form. It certainly is art... and we have to create our work often in short moments in time, on a canvas that is alive and who changes angle in every shot and hope the Alchemy of the lights, the model, the scene and the photographer capture the essence of what you intended to create in the final image. It's an exhilarating art form for so many reasons!"
"Through my course 'Makeup artist bootcamp', we explore how to nurture our own inner artist and not indulge the inner SABOTEUR. (That inner saboteur can kill dreams... this course is for artists who are chasing them!) We also play with painting to enhance and refine our own brush skills... ensuring we can go into any job knowing we can perform any look asked of us as artists. From a killer cat eye in 30 seconds to the confidence in creating that surprise creative makeup. Through practice and play we find our trust in ourselves and our abilities... regardless of whats in our kit.
nurturing yourself as an artist allows space for brush mastery, artistry confidence and silencing the saboteur. we Then get on with tools to assist following our hearts in our own unique way... in an industry that seems so loud in it's opinion on how you can/should be a success. The path we want to be on becomes clearer and clearer and we find ways to balance what 'they' want from us and at the same time, creating work that fulfills our own artistic visions and inner goals.
It's a completely unique, powerful and special education that has been in existence since 2013 with so many artists thriving the way they dreamed their careers to be. I'm extremely proud of what we achieve as artists doing this work together, the community we have created and of course, practicing all this in my own life to nurture my own beautiful makeup career.
