I was born in the Canadian city of Toronto and currently work and live here. I was raised out in the city’s quiet suburbs as a child/teen and it was very difficult for me to find an identity. I listened to music and turned to writing and drawing to get through my youthhood. When I started studying Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design, I finally felt creatively inspired and got an Art education. As a young woman I then moved to Paris France, had my son, all the while trying out the artist life, and not surprisingly I got burnt out. Now I seek a more healthy, simple way of living. As a woman, I’ve always felt there were fewer options and outlets for my own self actualization. I do feel fashion and make-up can be a powerful tool for self expression, as it has the ability to create choice for women, improve our quality of life in small, everyday ways. This journal is to illustrate that.
Dream E Beauty was born when in 2012, I got more attuned to the growing concern over the use of harsh ingredients in the mainstream cosmetics industry, and I wanted to make alternatives to their chemical formulas often made of low quality skincare ingredients. Dream E is my unique line of cosmetics made with natural ingredients that are simple and gentle to use. Check out my estore at dreamebeauty.com. I believe that women’s health is connected to nature and beauty culture should move in a direction that is more respectful to women’s bodies. No matter your age, self care is important, and I want to make it fun too!
