I am a Certified Permanent Cosmetics Professional (CPCP) and fully licensed in Oregon with specialized advanced Permanent Cosmetics training.
I am Lifetime Member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals which is an international organization that is dedicated to promoting safety, excellence, and professional standards.
I take a conservative approach to Permanent Cosmetics by designing the most natural looking, customized enhancement for you.
Through continuing education, I stay current with cutting edge skills and knowledge to offer you the best.
I live by the phrase “just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should” . I always think about how aging affects the design. I will work with you so that you love how you look. I don’t want your makeup to enter the room before you do.
“What I love the most about what I do is the satisfaction when someone loves what I have done for them.”
I bring you the best by investing time and money in continuing education which is critical to staying current with techniques and advances in the industry.
I have college degrees in Chemistry, Electronics and Human Resources.
Having been an artist all my life, I have worked many different mediums including watercolor, acrylics, and making silver and gold jewelry.
I am a licensed Esthetician - which American Heritage dictionary defines as "One versed in the theory of beauty and artistic expression".
My Permanent Cosmetics training was an extensive 360 hours curriculum taught by an instructor with over 20 years of experience. The curriculum covered all aspects of the art, safety and cleanliness standards for permanent cosmetics. The extensive hands on experience allowed me to graduate as one of my instructor's top students.
I am fully licensed with the State of Oregon.
Certified Permanent Cosmetics Professional (CPCP) and Lifetime Member of the Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals. I continue to expand my skills and knowledge through Continuing Education to offer my clients the best.
