BIO
WORK EXPERIENCE


Hi There! My name is Julie, and I am a licensed esthetican and  freelance makeup artist, for both motion picture and still photography.


Prior to that, I made my living as an entertainer for well over a decade. My background is in theatre, where I hold a BA in Music and Theatre with a Dance minor, and an MFA in Acting. I've performed, taught, written, directed, designed and owned a theatre for five years . . . but what I found I really loved at the core of it was the magic of transformation.


I loved the power of a team to transform a bare stage into a wonderland, of designers and artists and actors who transform words on page into a living thing, of the power of the story to transform everyone hearing it.

That may be romanticizing what I do a bit, but I'm very aware of the rigors and expectations of production work. When I started pursuing makeup as a career, I returned to school and got my esthetics license, as well as studying makeup for film with Marietta Carter-Narcisse, Cig Neutron and Donna Mee. 


I'm familar with on set protocol, and can provide references upon request. I do light hair styling on jobs I work solo, but I regularly work larger gigs with my creative partner, Chie Sharp, a master stylist of 20 years. Together we have several films and over 40 published editorials to our credit. We have a boutique salon in downtown Indianapolis, PERPETUAL STUDIO, where we offer our clientele customized salon services-hair, skin care and waxing. 

I love what I do, and am always excited to help you with your makeup goals, from bridal or special event makeup to killing it (literally) at Halloween with over the top FX work.  I strive to stay current with continuing education, and never pass up an opportunity to assist a fellow artist. 

Please contact me for an appointment or with any questions. I'm looking forward to working with you!
