I'm a freelance retoucher, digital creative and sometimes a photographer. My mother was a model who eventually wound up behind the camera. I grew up in the dark room around fix bath, organizing print layouts and as an office assistant in my mother's photo studio.
In 2003 I moved to Los Angeles to go to FIDM as I was certain I wanted to work in fashion. I rebelled from being a photographer like my mom. But, as fate would have it, digital photography was becoming a thing. (Also, I hated sewing.) When a friend showed me Photoshop, I was hooked. Oh the possibilities! I shifted gears from studying fashion to digital design and have never looked back. Photography & Art are definitely in my genes. I'm inspired by the Surrealists especially Salvador Dali & Me´ret Oppenheim. A fur tea cup on a fur plate. My cup of tea!
I earned my degree in Graphic Design but was obsessed with mastering Photoshop. I continued honing my skills by taking classes all over Los Angeles. I was in the perfect city to network & learn first hand from talented retouchers such as Lisa Carney, Dennis Dunbar, Ed Freeman & Colin Smith. At a UCLA photoshop class I met the instructor, Scott Stulberg, an award winning photographer. I became fast friends with him and his wife. I now retouch for my mentor and absolutely love to show them new Photoshop tricks. I have worked for Victoria's Secret, La Senza, Skechers, Fanatics, Truest1 Creative & OneKreate.
I recently became a digital nomad and I'm looking forward to working from all over the globe. In my free time I play sand volleyball, ride only "spirited" horses and I'm addicted to snorkeling & scuba diviving in Thailand, Mexico and the Balearic Islands.
