Where are you from?  
I grew up in Red-Deer. I moved to Edmonton to attend the Musical Theatre Program at GMU, graduating in 2018. For now I am based in Edmonton.

What first got you interested in make-up?
I have loved make-up since I was a kid.
I saw Labyrinth when I was 5, and David Bowie was an inspiration and influence from that point on.  I have all of his albums (and album covers).

As a hobby I first experimented by copying looks and styles from fantasy movies, trying to recreate the make up looks for myself.

What is your favourite Colour?  
Yellow

What is your favourite Make-Up Look?
No-eyebrows. I love transformation.  They are such a defining characteristic and visual cue to a person's personality.  Erasing the eyebrows allows me to start with a blank canvas where I can create not only a look but even hit at the personality behind the look.

What is the most challenging make up to do?
Special effects and illusions -  adding prosthetics like horns and blending them into the make up seamlessly so they look real.

How did you approach the make up looks for the NLT photo shoot?
I wanted to bring a sense of whimsy to the poster looks, outside of the realm of realism, larger than life fantasy.
