Painting, drawing, sculpting etc. As she got older the love for horror and Halloween grew to a passion of setting up her house and making props to scare kids every Halloween. She took a small class about Halloween makeup and realized she had found the thing she wanted to do in life. Makeup was a merge of art and Halloween.
