Adopted from Korea with Sicilian and Polish parents, Ande quickly learned that difference and individuality was a gift to be embraced and celebrated. Strongly influenced by her exposure to the arts and music at a young age, she was noticable drawn to the creative side of life always coloring outside the lines in her coloring books and never limiting herself to the idea that there is only one way of doing things. After a literal dream about make-up, she went out that day, found a job as a make-up artist and never looked back.
"If not for the support of my amazing parents and their open generous natures, I might never have found my true path in life. I am eternally grateful for all the love, patience and understanding I have received. My parents are the truest gift I have been given in this life."
Ande's career as a freelance make-up artist includes success in fasion, film, runway, commercial and advertising. While she holds a great respect for all the fields within her industry, her true passion is in film, special FX make-up and the avant-garde. She is a member of I.A.T.S.E. 798.
