The artist does not see life as a problem to be solved, but as a medium for creation." -- Dorothy Sayers

I love this quote because as a hair stylist each time someone sits in my chair there is the chance to create. Whether it is the challenge of reproducing a desired effect, or the exploration of finding a new look; every client allows me the opportunity to design a style for them that will complement the beautiful person they are. As a hair care professional I see myself as an artist.

I have enjoyed working in the Portland area as a Stylist for 12 years. Among other continuing education classes, I have trained in New York City in the Deva Curl cutting method for curly hair. This technique uses each individual's unique curl type and texture as a guide for cutting a natural and beautiful shape into the hair, by working with the curl and not against it. If you have naturally curly hair, check out the Deva Concepts website for more info.

I currently enjoy working as an independent stylist among a wonderful team of fellow professionals at Green, a salon close to downtown off East Burnside. Green is an Eco friendly salon with a warm, inviting atmosphere and stylists that care for their clients with outstanding professionalism. For salon information please visit their website,

With each client my goal is to listen and consult carefully before creating a beautifully finished cut or color that will suit their unique style, hair type, face shape, complexion, and styling ability.   I would love to meet with you and help you achieve the goals you have for your look!
