Art has always been the center of Rebecca’s life. She started expressing herself through drawing at the age of three. Utilizing her talent, Rebecca moved past the basics with further interest in different aspects of art including costumes, makeup and hair for stage, wig construction, instruction, storyboard and set design; earning numerous ribbons and awards. She continues to use these skills today,making her a versatile member of any team.
Rebecca went on to commercial art and then turned toward the less traditional media – the human body. She took jobs that gave her knowledge and experience in the medical and cosmetic industries. Rebecca found an outlet for thinking outside-the-box with fantasy styled illustrations while volunteering at playhouses with set, wig and costume duties.
Earning her Cosmetology license and a specialty license as an Aesthetician (skin specialist), Rebecca brought her art to makeup and hair design. Focusing her skills, Rebecca received her advanced education through Joe Blasco Makeup Center under the tutelage of Ashlee Petersen and Eric Lusk. Upon graduation, Ashlee Petersen asked Rebecca to assist her and Mr. Lusk in teaching the next classes. This is an honor that will stay with her as well as their friendship. Once Rebecca received her certification from The Makeup Center, she dove into every sort of makeup endeavor. Her work has been featured on The Learning Channel’s “A Wedding Story,” the Own Canadian Network’s “Murder She Solved: A True Crime,” various commercials, Music Videos, fund-raising event and even food sculpting.
Rebecca is an asset to any and every team she joins.
-I am proud of her!
