I've been doing makeup for over 35 years, and as a professional makeup artist in the Cleveland and Akron area for 15+ years. It's my goal to make everyone feel more confident by enhancing their look.

I work with brides, models, teens, "tweens", and everyone in between. I do makeovers in my studio and specialize in bridal makeup, with over 50 weddings a year. I developed and teach one-on-one personalized application lessons, for adults and teens/tweens. I also teach application workshops for groups of 4 to 6 people.

I travel to your location on your special day to help ease the stress and time constraints that you encounter. While you're in my chair, it's all about you!!!

I enjoy working with anyone [female or male] that has a need for makeup application, products and/or techniques, and a love for makeup! I provide a safe, comfortable atmosphere for transgender and cross dress individuals.

I work with professional photographers, models, clothing designers, etc., to achieve the exact looks they are wanting to create. My work has been published in Modern Model Magazine and Summit Racing catalogs.

I use and market a two cosmetic and skin care lines - Motives by Loren Ridinger and SeneGence/LipSense - which everyone can purchase/use. Both are hypoallergenic, cruelty free and mineral based. SeneGence foundations are waterproof, which is perfect for weddings!

For my bridal clients: Please book ALL your vendors at the same time! I get so many last minute requests from brides looking to book me, and have to tell them I'm unavailable. If you're thinking "it's only makeup, it can wait" then you may be left without finding an artist. I book up at least a year or more in advance, as do most bridal makeup artists.
