Her style is clean and timeless with a rock and roll- glam edge.
Her love affair with art and beauty began at an early age, when she would recreate hair and makeup applications of favorite musical artists and draw her own comic books. She has pursued this passion her entire life. Her love of music, art and her innate creativity drove her success working for cosmetic lines, followed by a cosmetology degree and stints at several highly regarded hair salons in Illinois. Melanie has experience in airbrushing, beauty, special effects, fashion, bridal, print, film, media, theatrical, waxing and lash enhancements. She has created looks for top cosmetic lines, photographers, models, and directors. She has a passion for clean beauty, women's rights, sustainability and the environment and gives back to local organizations and charities.
The natural and organic elements in Melanie’s work are complemented by her penchant for fine art, the mystical, photography, and the avant garde artists of her youth. She has built a reputation as one of the most respected and sought-after emerging artists in the business. Melanie believes that everyone is beautiful on the inside and that her job is to let that individuality shine through for the world to see.
