I am a New York-based makeup artist, working in fashion, beauty, lifestyle and advertising.
Raised in the lake district of the northern Finnish countryside, I spent 15 great years as a makeup/hair artist in Helsinki — and am now continuing my career here in the US.
I started my path to makeup artistry by first studying skincare and wellness therapies. After getting my diploma from CIDESCO — the Comité International d'Esthétique et de Cosmétologie — I plunged into my career as a makeup artist working with established photographers and videographers. My experience in the beauty industry and my passion for the art of fashion has taken me to catwalks and editorial/video shoots around the world. It has also provided me with a devoted clientele in fashion, print media and live action.
