I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. Growing up I was lucky enough to be exposed to many countries and cultures while traveling with my parents. I found the different colors and textures of fabrics and costumes, traditions and the architecture of these countries so fascinating. I continued my travels when I went off to college in Amsterdam as it was easy to get on a train or quick flight and explore new cities. 

I was always a creative person and after studying art, interior design, photography and many other creative fields found my passion in makeup. I was able to express my creativity through makeup, hair and styling. 

After finishing school I started my career as a makeup artist working for the Swedish cosmetics brand 'Make Up Store' and doing freelance work for private clients, photo shoots and fashion shows in Amsterdam. 

Needing a new challenge I moved to Miami Beach, FL and started working at MAC PRO. There I was able to grow and learn new skills working with senior artists and fellow makeup artists as well as continuing my freelance work catering to private clients, teaching makeup classes, working fashion shows, photo shoots and doing makeup for entertainers. 

I have been doing makeup for about 8 years now and have recently moved back home to my gorgeous island where I have truly found my happiness. I am fortunate enough to be able to continue doing what I love best, making people look and feel beautiful!
