After 20 years of amazing experience in the world of Makeup Artistry; I decided to start doing workshops to begin my legacy (I'm old people) and pass own the knowledge I have acquired all these years. My goal for 2010 is to start educating new Artists and raise the industry standards by teaching not only beauty but also business savvy. I want the new generation of talented artists to strive for excellence... PMA style!

My workshops are an one-on-one experience and you get my full attention as well as you get to ask any questions. You can also take two workshops in one day (I have four workshops to choose from). However, I am completely booked for 2010 for weddings & other work; so I can only take one Artist per month. As much as I would like to accommodate more attendees, I can only teach 12 Artists this year. So book yours soon!

This month's workshop, I had the privilege to have Rona Basa as my apprentice for two of my workshops "The Art of Makeup" & "The Art of the Updo". We had a full day (8hrs) of fun! At The Art of Makeup workshop, Rona was able to follow my instruction and hands-on guidance to create beautiful looks as illustrated in the photos above. We did from natural to sultry! Rona is such a great student and learned everything so quickly, she came prepared with a lot of questions and gave me the biggest compliment ever by saying that it was the best workshop she has ever taken.

I expect great things from Rona and I have no doubt she will be very successful; I felt her passion for our craft and I'm fortunate to have been part of her educational experience.
