I am a Hairstylist by profession and I love it. I feel blessed to have found it and have been doing it for almost 30 years. 30 years! WOW! When I started I thought I would do this gig until I got bored and I haven't yet. What a surprise to find that just like life my career has been ever changing and always a teacher. It has not only held my interest, but, has had me on the edge of my seat sometimes. Styles are constantly changing and it is exciting to learn new things and push my limits. Not only as a stylist but as a person as well. It has helped me grow as a person and an artist. Also, I love talking with people and feel like I have learned so much from my clients and feel they have helped me follow my path. It has been the unexpected bonus. My clients are my friends, my mentors, and my family.

prisThe concept behind pris was future meets film in a world that is more desolate than now. I made the clothing out of recycled sweaters and metal fencing and screen. A little bit awkward and a little bit comfortable.
infusionWe had an art opening and a wonderful idea of doing some collaborating. So a couple of us got together and using one of the artists that were being featured at the opening we came up with a look. It was super fun!!!
energyWe had a wonderful time flexing our creative muscles for this show. It was an hour long performance of dance and theatrics and Katie Parnello, director, had the great idea of incorporating fabric in the hair and I loved it. Here is our interpretation of that. There is a video put together of it on my podcast page. Check it out!!!
