About Me




Gallery of Some of My Faux Finishing Projects

Welcome to Permanent Makeup Creations.

I graduated of the American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics (AIIC) with an Advanced Degree as a Cosmetic Technician. AIIC is internationally recognized as a top institution for Permanent Cosmetics training, education, and research.


I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. and attended Purdue University earning a Bachelors degree in Marketing and Business. After graduating, I started a career as an interior decorator, but I quickly realized my real passion was creating drama on surfaces. Inspired by my love for decorative finishes, I trained with one of the finest Faux Artists in the business. I learned the art and techniques of various faux finishes and plasters. I specialized in Olde world textures, Italian plaster, Lusterstone, metallics and many other finishes. Below are some pictures from my portfolio. I hope they will be effective in demonstrating my abilities as an artist.  


With my background in Faux Finishing Artistry and attention to detail, I now bring my experience in design, color and aesthetic touch to Permanent Makeup.


I will listen to your ideas, make meaningful suggestions, and follow your  wishes to ensure your complete satisfaction.




I hope to be Consulting with you soon.
