About Me

A Thriving Artist From Germany 

Reliable | Flexible | Intuitive

The spark in the eyes of a client...

When a final look is created and the artristry magic is done, the spark in the client's eyes - exactly this situation fullfills my dream of working as a Hair & Makeup Artist everyday!

I am an experienced and passionated artist who listens carefully, asks the right questions & reads your needs.

As a certified Barber and Hair & Makeup Artist, I hold active licenses as Cosmetologist, Hair Designer and Esthetician in the States of California and Ohio.

During my journey in Berlin, Germany, I have been trained by the Swiss Celebrity Makeup Artist Beni Durrer and was fortunate to learn about all his beauty secrets and skills, which I love to share with my clients today!

Favorites | What is in my Beauty Kit

While I take pride in shaping my beauty brand Kōena which has the philosophy of cosmetic products entirely free of synthetics or chemicals and being based on only natural ingredients, it is inevitable to also use other brands for professional makeup services. 

The difference between all these makeup brands is huge and I picked my favorite brands very carefully. Many of them are limiting the amount of synthetic ingredients and focus on being high-quality makeup products that let your beauty shine!

Of course there are a more brands I can highly recommend for special effects makeup or for daily wear.
Feel free to reach out to me to get more details which products work best you. 


The Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation is the favorite choice of professional makeup artists.

You can achieve a second skin finish and the coverage is light to full buildable.
Perfect for weddings or Everyday occassions!
The waterproof/sweat-resistant formula is wonderful for brides or someone who is exposed to extreme heat/humidity.

The finish even resists the bright lights on the catwalk, backstage and above that.

I absolutley loved working for bareMinerals in Germany.

I admire the ingredients which make your skin look instantly refreshed and brings out your natural features.

The minerals and vitamins in their product line can make the skin really healthier over time! bareMinerals launched their best-selling mineral foundation in 1995:
"We're full of what's good and free of what's not" - bareMinerals

Working for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in Germany was so much fun! You can create either very simple day looks or high-end photoshoot-looks with their high-quality products. Her products, lifestyle & work ethic was so inspiring to me, I started to feel the desire also to become a professional and Independant Makeup Artist!  
"When the brand was founded nearly 30 years ago, this was our vision - and we champion it today.
"We make makeup that enhances - not hides - your true beauty." - Bobbi Brown
