Why did you pick this picture?
I am a perfectionist by heart, and I am very critical of my work. This is the only picture I sat back and loved how my vision came into full effect. It has so much depth and colors. I love creating looks with vibrant colors.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I’ve always been fascinated by planets and our solar system. I wanted to create something with a galaxy that would be cool on a human body. What better than opening up your body and seeing planets inside.
What does this art mean to you?
Art is my drug. Something I can’t live without. It’s my therapy every time I use it. Art has a way of healing. It’s helped me as a person and stretched me as a thinker and creator.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I was born in West Springfield Massachusetts and moved a lot as a child. I’ve lived in every corner of the United States except for the pacific coast. I would call Connecticut my home away from home. I love traveling and seeing new places, although there’s nothing like staying in your own house at night. A lot of people think my personality would be running around NYC or LA, but I’d like to think my ideal life would be in a cabin in the woods sipping coke by the water.
What more can you tell us about your art?
Makeup was something I never thought I would ever do. I always wanted to be a director of some sort, be in movies or on stage. However, makeup always kept coming into my life. In my mind, makeup was a women’s profession, and I was ashamed as a male to say I did makeup. It wasn’t until I realized art and artists come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and forms that I really found pride in telling people what I do.
