DO WHAT YOU LOVE – LOVE WHAT YOU DO!
From an early age on Chrissi was always busy with drawing and sketching. She used every opportunity to unpack all her colors, pens and brushes and start painting. She loved (still does) playing with colors and different materials and using her hands to create something special and new. It was the best way for her to express her feelings. For her family, friends and teachers it was soon clear, that this little one is blessed with a wonderful talent.
In January 1990 she discovered the British VOGUE cover, photographed by Peter Lindberg featuring Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford – today known as the supermodels of the 90s. From this point onwards she exactly knew that she wanted to be part of this world and decided to paint on faces one day and make up all this wonderful women out there.
DREAM BIG, WORK HARD, STAY FOCUSED AND SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GOOD PEOPLE.
Chrissi started her career as a hair stylist in Vienna, Austria. The key area of her training comprised hair, skin and makeup artistry for different industries like beauty, fashion, film and TV. In 2014 she decided to start her own business. Since then she has the opportunity to work as a makeup artist with a lot of talented and creative people in the field of editorial, fashion- & beauty photography as well as for commercial clients, advertisement spots and also the music business.

With her lively, cheerful and impetuous nature and an instinctive sense for beauty, it comes easy to her to conquer the heart of her partners and customers.
