Make-up art and photoshoot styling
After my training my first experience with make-up art was in the theater. Very exciting stuff, to turn a young actor into an 80 year old codger, or a pretty young lady into a street roaming drug addict. From there I landed in fashion, where the jobs were.
Though I worked longest in the fashion industry, it was the least interesting to me and after many years of doing other arty things I discovered theme photoshoots. Love it!
