I am the Owner of The Studio By Elysian & Luxe.
I am a Cosmetic and Fine Line Tattoo Artist.
I have been in the Beauty industry for 17 years, as I was a licensed hairstylist by the early age of 19.
While my two kiddos were small I decided not to go back full time in the Salon and started teaching myself photography.
I had a lovely little photography business for 6 years.
Though I no longer take clients, Photography is still a huge passion of mine.
I got into Cosmetic Tattooing 4.5 years ago.
I was looking to make a change while staying true to my passion for the beauty industry as well as feed my creativity.
Knowing that to be one of the best, you need to learn from the best, I headed to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho to study this art form with Haylee Gabriel of True Life Canvas, a Leader in the Cosmetic Tattoo Industry. I became fully certified to do Cosmetic Tattooing of the Lips, Eyebrows, and Eyeliner.
Always wanting to give my clients the absolute highest quality services, I have, and always will continue training and keeping my skills sharp and up to date.
Most recently I have trained to expand my tattoo skill and knowledge to be able to offer clients Fine Line Tattoos, and Scalp Micropigmentation.
So when I'm not masked, gloved and tattooing someone, what am I up to?
That depends on the time of year!
I have a daughter Sydney, a Son Deagan and a French Bull dog named Griffin. So we are usually on the go to one of their sporting events, snowboarding, paddle boarding or out at my parents farm.
I have an incredible man, Caleb. He is a huge part of the business and credited with the layout design of The Studio.
We love going to the gym together, trying new restaurants or my favourite... eating his delicious cooking and enjoying a glass of wine at home.
I love to Travel. My main travel goal is to find the heat and sun, but also to go
where the great food is! 2109 was my year of Travel for sure, visiting places like Hawaii, Tofino, Thailand, and Bali.
I have a serious plant addiction. You will notice that immediately upon arrival to The Studio.
I love food, wine, music, stand up comedians and naps. (not necessarily in that order)
I am scared of snakes, I hate scary movies, and am often found wearing mismatched socks.
So that's a little bit about me, I can't wait to learn about you!
