I am talking about ART people… get your head out of the gutter!

Hello world! Welcome to ArtJunki.com, where ART, MAKEUP, & LIFE collide. Here, I will take you on a colorful journey through my life. I will share all the amazingly beautiful things in this world that capture my soul.  For all you fellow Art Junkis out there, I am sure that you can relate to the heart-wrenching, blood-thirsty passion I have for ALL things ART.

Growing up as an art addict, life often looked like one big multi-colored mess. I knew that I was a creative mind, but it seemed nearly impossible to hone in on one aspect of art…. that was until I went to makeup school.  In school I realized very quickly that my love for art could be expressed through my work as a makeup artist.  I had finally found something that gave me the freedom to create something new, and different, and beautiful each and every day, and my heart felt full.  To me, Makeup is MAGIC!  The more I began to learn and grow as an artist, the more I felt compelled to share this magic with the rest of the world.  Today I am excited to share this with all of you here on my blog!

Although my skills as a makeup artist will be a strong focus here on ArtJunki, I still want to touch on all the other elements of art that play a strong role in my life.  Music, Fashion, and Travel, and all the other beautiful elements of art that feed my soul will also make an appearance here at artjunki.com

In sharing my strong bond with art, I also want this page to be a place that promotes self-love and positivity.  Creative expression was my rock while going through some very challenging times in my life.  I hope to encourage ALL people to break away from what is expected, and DO YOU!  Embrace all of the things that make you unique, and find beauty in your flaws.  Once I stopped worrying so much about what other people thought of me, I was free.  I was finally able to focus on all the things that make me happy, instead of trying to please everyone else in my life.  ART became my sanctuary, my therapy.  It has opened my eyes to all the beauty this world has to offer, and it has given me a sense of peace when life seems too tough to handle.  I hope that you can find whatever outlet brings you peace, and most importantly, remember to love yourself.

Thank you for stopping by my page, and I hope you will join me on my journey through life as a self professed Art Junki!
