From a young age, Theresa has always enjoyed expressing herself through many forms of art. She spent many hours immersed in her sidewalk chalk art as a young person.

Theresa's sidewalk art

The passion of makeup artistry first ignited when she was pursuing her art degree at the University of North Carolina in Asheville. Portraits were her senior focus, utilizing chalk as the medium of choice once again. She always enjoyed applying the makeup to the portrait drawings. As her senior thesis was coming to a close, she started to dabble in costume makeup.

After school, she started working and training in makeup at Sephora. She loved learning all about skin care, makeup, and working with a wide variety of clientele. After about a year at Sephora, Theresa knew she had found her calling and so she attained an Esthetics License with the state of North Carolina.
