Where do you work?
I own Masterworks Salon in Cedarburg WI.

 

Tell us about how you got started in the nail industry.
I was looking for a union to join to do construction, but needed a job immediately. I applied at a nail salon as a receptionist and they asked if I would do nails instead. (I have a cosmetology license) I very begrudgingly said "Okay."

 

What/Who inspires your work?
Catherine Wong...crazy great! I'm floored by the Russian nail stylists. There really are so many. But my biggest inspiration is God. Sometimes when I'm creating a design, it's like I'm watching someone else's hands do the work.

 

Which tool(s) can't you live without?
My art brush and pin pen. I've recently found that Silly Putty is a must too!!!

 

What is your favorite technique or style?
I love the pipe.
