HOLISTIC:  in the idea of interconnectedness, wholeness as opposed to just a part.  A factoring in of relevant elements for the highest desired outcome. 

BEAUTY:  is subjective and comes in many forms.  To me it is the recognition and celebration of all things divine.  Also subjective, I view beauty like weather.  There is an exquisiteness about all elements depending on perception, which is mutable.  And a full range of beauty please if its applicable, it gives depth, from horribly beautiful to incredibly beautiful.  Creativity being the key to express the desired intent.  Trained in the full spectrum of the arts, the energetics of the human condition, and excited to translate in creative form.  

WELLNESS/wellbeing:  generally defined as health.  Health usually equates to beauty (and to wealth).  When we feel and look good we radiate.  Radiant wellness = beauty, which is ageless/timeless/evergreen.  "Health" has an effortless vibrant quality to it.  A richness all its own.  Trained and certified in the energetics and therapeutic qualities of wellbeing in multiple modalities.  

CREATIVE DIRECTION / VISIONARY:  accessing and elevating the objective by holistically envisioning the tangible creative manifestation of it.  As a painter I was taught how to look at light, to change my perception of it, and to then reproduce it.  In all mediums.  Accessing the best one/ones for the translation of the idea.  The childs watercolor being the most unforgiving, its nature translucent.  Oil being the most pliable.  Tonal prep, under paintings,  layering, and the luxury of time to set.  I have refined these skills on the human canvas as a makeup artist and mens groomer adding in the education of dynamic humanity.  Live subject, clients, talent team, personal management, the energetics of it all, and being creative on command.  25 years NYC based experience in the arts of commerce.

INTENT:  it is my intention to increase our quality of lives for my highest good and the highest good of all.  Because I believe in love, compassion, and gratitude.  Its rewarding to hold space for our art, our creativity, our humanity and divinity.  

May we all know freedom from suffering, freedom from fear, and may we have everything we need for our highest good and the highest good of all.  Loved, healthy, and happy.

Holistic Beauty / Wellness Practitioner:  Multidimensional holistic beauty and wellness. Catering to the mind, body, and spirit.  The whole being, from skin to energy, from birth to death.  Diverse offerings starting with the basics.  We all may have different wants and needs.  Maybe the talent needs a glass of water while sitting in the chair.  Hydration = plump cells.

30 years NYC experience in all aspects of fashion, 25 years experience translating them on the face.  Literally "laying hands" on the apex of the senses.  Using the epicenter of our reality processor as a canvas.  (Its never just blush that translates "happiness".  An eye sparkle is priceless right?) 

Creative Direction / Visionary:  Turning that creative idea, the objective into a reality.  The narrative into a visual legacy - art - and making dreams real.  Utilizing time spent learning on set/location, and part of teams as well as making personal art.  Deepening my understanding of the balance / connection between art / commerce and humanity.

What is "energy, energetics, and energetic arts"?  It is the space being held for the client to heal THEMSELVES.  We are all our OWN healers.  As a certified energetic practitioner I am simply holding space for clients to heal themselves.  Simply a facilitator with the intent and vow to do no harm.  Subtle and rewarding, it is an honor, a privilege, and a pleasure to hold space for our divinity.
