Anyone that knows me knows how much I love Chicago and feel its full of so many talented and hardworking artists. Chicagoans are tough and survivors and I am extremely honored to represent my community in Best of Chicago issue. Dubbed by Chicago Magazine as “Best Nail Artist” of 2014 I am humbled by the title and can’t help but think of a couple of artists in the city that also are very deserving of the accolade. Thank you Chicago Mag for the generous title that makes me proud to represent the Nail Art and Chicago community!

I am so high off of this article on Groupon.com by Kelly MacDowell and I swear its not because of the polish fumes. I can trustfully say that this has been one of the best and accurate articles written about my work and I feel like I am ready for world domination after reading it! This article really focuses on how I view my work, as pieces of art which does express different seasons and beauty but really is about expression of self and art. I am most passionate and inspired during nail sessions where my client want tiny paintings inspired by art pieces or detailed patterns from Fashion Designers; which is totally art as well. I love the challenge of detail in a small space and the tinier the nail the better in my opinion. I love to be inspired by my clients. This article also touches and focuses on my work in museums like the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago with artist Dzine, The Brooklyn Museum and MoMA PS1 in New York with Vanity Projects as well as takes you through what a typical day in my quiet nail studio is like (complete with a play-by-play of images from my friend Stephanie Anderson). Kelly interviewed me for this piece while getting her nails done and mentioned how she was really intrigued by Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’. After a few gems, black and grey paint and a big splatter mess later I was finished and Anderson was up close and person snapping every bit of detail that would make my entire day, week, month..okay most likely my year. Read it already! Its totally worth it-Nail Artist’s Honor!

I was contacted by General Motors to enjoy a ride of choice for a week and since I dream BIG I went for the Cadillac ELR. The ELR is the first Electric Hybrid Coupe from Cadillac, the vehicle operates on electricity for about 30 miles before the gas powered engine will kick in to charge the battery to keep things moving. This whip has everything, anything you can think of it has been done. Automated cupholder covers, ambient blue lights, suede and leather interior, hidden door handles and keyless start. My favorite part of the interior has to be the hidden stash box behind the infotainment system which I only discovered accidently while playing with the touch screen recognition. The screen opened up to reveal a nice size storage space, perfect for storing my polishes by RGB Cosmetics and nail tools while on the run. Peep the video and “read more” to get the full scoop.
