Meet the Artist
Starting out in cosmetic retail at the age of 18 Amanda knew she had found her passion in making girls and women feel beautiful. Leaving behind Art school and an Interior Design degree was never something she had planned. Switching from oil paints and studying the history or furniture to lipstick and highlighter was the best medicine for this wandering soul.
Working as a manager for Aveda for the beginning of her career, Amanda learned her love for natural beauty and released her hippie vibes. Moving on as a manager at Sephora for close to 7 years, Amanda realized there was so much more to makeup than tinted moisturizer and a nude gloss. It was here she realized her schooling would come into play. After all she is an artist.
Although airbrush is popular and top among artists, Amanda prefers to touch the products to the clients face and see how each reacts and like an artist likes to be one with their canvas.
Amanda spends her days working at a local retailer and taking out of store appointments and referrals. In her free time Amanda raises her twin daughters with her wife and loves to travel.
“Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”-Gwyneth Paltrow
