CREATIVE & PERFORMING ARTS PUBLICITY ~ CANADA
Hello creative and performing artists,
I have 25 years’ experience as a multi-passionate creative entrepreneur. My journey through photography, makeup artistry, journalism, public relations, marketing, artist management, jewellery design, and creativity coaching is the result of a lifelong passion for arts and entertainment.
As a publicist, I have represented musicians, actors, dancers, visual artists, art galleries, performers, authors, fashion/beauty brands, and cultural events.
I began my career as a fashion and people photographer in Vancouver, B.C. Collaborating with models, fashion stylists, makeup artists, musicians, and actors was inspiring. During this time I discovered that I had a passion for make-up so when I made the move to Toronto, Ontario I began working at MAC Cosmetics. I was also freelancing as a make-up artist for photography, fashion shows, TV, film and music videos.
With more than 15 years in public relations, I know how to increase awareness and secure international media coverage. I would be thrilled to join your team. Learn more about me.
