VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS PR ~ CANADA
Hello visual and performing artists,
With more than 20 years’ as a Creative Entrepreneur, my arts and culture experiences are varied. I began my career as a fashion and people photographer in Vancouver, B.C. Collaborating with models, fashion stylists, makeup artists, musicians, actors and other creatives 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.
When I became an arts and entertainment publicist, I was drawn to various creative projects. I have represented visual artists, art galleries, performers, dancers, authors, fashion/beauty brands, and cultural events. In addition to photography and makeup artistry, I have also explored dance, guitar, mandolin, painting, mixed media, drawing, and jewelry making.
With more than 14 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.
