Born in Los Angeles, California, I moved to Sandy Springs, Georgia to start a new life in a safe and family-oriented environment for me to raise my 2 kids. While I was a teenager in Los Angeles, I would paint various ceramics as a hobby and everyone noticed how well I painted. During my kids parties I did the faces of all their friends and they enjoyed it so much they said I should do this professionally.
After moving to Georgia a second time in 2003 I sent my children to a College Prep school called Imhotep Center of Education and came on board volunteering, doing administrative work, fund raiser committee and in that I decided to become a face painting vendor and what has started as a hobby doing my daughter and son faces for Halloween and their friends at birthday parties has become a creative career.
Since then I have done many birthday parties, fund raisers, BBQ's, family reunions, and corporate picnics and events.
