As an Artist... I wear many hats. Makeup/Hair/Styling/Production/Graphics/Designer/Model/Actress/Choreographer/Writer/Director/Editor. 
I love it all! That's the beauty of being a freelance artist.... you don't have to choose just one. As my mother often told me as a young girl, "Why have one, when you can have them all." Go after ALL your dreams. Growing up with that kind of encouragement instilled in me the visionary attributes that I possess today. I was once told to write down "50 Wonderful Things" by a college professor at FIDM (Where I majored in Visual Communications....ART) at first mention, I thought 50 was a bit frivolous; today, I have 200 "Wonderful Things" I want to do in life. I've checked off more than 50 already. Who are we NOT to live the life of our DREAMS. 
At times, I admit... wearing multiple hats can be quite inundating even to the strongest of women; but let's face it girls, it's just more fun... and we do it oh so well.....

Makeup Artist Note:
I had a blast working on this shoot.... Hugette, Editor of DISfunkshion Magazine, is all about COLOR. So I gave her color! It was like being in ART class all over again. I used traditional makeup and pigment, along with my airbrush gun. I splattered, sprayed, and spackled. It was one of the most creative, unrestrained art projects I've ever been apart of. It's definitely safe to say, "I love my job!"

And you are so right about doing it all! It is one of the greatest gratifications of my life to know that I can do something different that creatively challenges me from day to day! Thanks for the reminder of all that we are capable of!
