Creating Exor was an amazing opportunity for our graduate
team. The size and scope of this project really gave our grads
the experience of making a character for film or television. Exor
was a labor of love and the final product was everything we had
planned and more.
The completed
fiberglass copy
of the actor’s body was
created by laying fiberglass
and epoxy resin into each
section of the mold. Front
and back sections were
joined together working
through the openings in
the arm and torso sections
on the front of the mold.
This character was complex for a number of reasons. To start,
the head was a silicone gel filled appliance, the muscle suite
was foam latex, the armor was latex and poly foam and the
hands were again silicone gel filled appliances. All of these
products had to work seamlessly together to make the creature
come to life. I decided to make the armor as a separate element
from the muscle suit as you would for a movie character. This
required 2 complete upper torso sculptures and 3 upper torso

molds. The teeth for the character were designed to sit outside
the performer’s mouth in front of his lips. This required a very
special set of dentures constructed by Thad Whitley owner of
Dental Distortions. The hands for the character were 4 finger
designs with 9 inch fingers and a thumb on both sides. This
design required self-contained mechanical hands worn by the
performer that had mechanisms built into the elongated fingers
that bent the upper finger joints as the lower joints moved. In
addition a small cable and additional joint mechanisms were
used to move the extra thumb on the other side of the hand.
The costume for the design was also a challenge. The skirt
alone had over 150 separate panels and elements. The last part
of complexity was the custom made electronic lighting system
that was embedded in the armor. A huge thank you goes out
to Michael Westmore Jr., Michael literally created circuit boards
and custom wireless control boards just for this project. The 4
different light arrays in the armor each had 20 LED lights built

spot to create dozens of colors and lighting sequences. Lastly I
would like to thank Alex Crawford, our talented performer, who
brought the character to life.
I would like to thank our MUD instructor Karrieann Sillay Heisner
for her dedication and artistry in helping to make this character
a reality. I would also like to thank our MUD graduates Eugenia
Fernandez, Ashley Tyne, Tamika Clark, and Jocelyn Alcazar
who volunteered their time to help with all stages of this project.

MUD Alumni on SyFy’s Reality Series Face Off
Nicholas Gonzalez, Cat Paschen and Bethany Serpico
T
his year Make-Up Designory’s Alumni Nicholas Gonzalez (MUD LA), Cat Paschen
(MUD LA) and Bethany Serpico (MUD NY) were selected to compete amongst
11 other contestants on SyFy’s television reality show, Face Off. Face Off is a
competition/elimination series that explores the world of special make-up effects
artists. Each episode presents the contestants with a theme and a challenge to create
extraordinary pieces of work in a very limited timeframe. Actress McKenzie Westmore, of the
Westmore family dynasty whose name is synonymous with the make-up effects field, hosts
the reality series. The panel of judges included some of SFX world’s most celebrated figures—
multiple Academy-Award winner Ve Neill (The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean,)
industry veteran Glenn Hetrick (CSI: New York, Heroes, Legion) and creature designer Neville
Page (Avatar, Prometheus). World-renowned Hollywood make-up artist Michael Westmore
(Star Trek) serves as the contestant mentor.
To celebrate the casting of our Alumni, Make-Up Designory hosted a live viewing party of
Face Off’s season premier. Guests included MUD’s CEO Tate Holland, Director of Education
Paul Thompson, MUD LA’s school Director Gil Romero, VP Karl Zundel along with Niko, Cat,
school instructors, current students, friends and family. All were there to show their support
for the MUD grads, the make-up artist community and fellow cast members.
We asked Gil Romero, School Director for MUD Los Angeles what he thought of the
opportunity Face Off gives MUD students and graduates:
“Face Off is the perfect platform to have our graduates demonstrate their developing talents.
It allows them to showcase not only to industry professionals, but to everyone fascinated
by the make-up effects world. Bethany, Cat and Niko are highly motivated and extremely
creative. Our mission as a school is to give them the training, knowledge and support to
succeed in this industry. We are very proud of each of our students and graduates, and the
hard work they put in to build a fulfilling career.”

We then asked Cat and Niko to give us some insight into their experience.
What was your overall Face Off experience like?
Cat: Over all, it was an amazing, once in a life time kind of experience. I still cannot believe
that it all happened. Even though it was the most stressful and hardest challenge I have
faced, I still feel lucky to have been a part of such an amazing show and to have met such
an amazing group of people.
Niko: It was great, I really enjoyed every moment of it. I got to meet a lot of great people
and had the chance to create things I never imagined I could do. This was one of the best

experiences of my life, I would definitely do it again.
What is your advice to aspiring contestants and, or make-up artists?
Cat: My advice to any aspiring make-up artist or contestants is: you can achieve your
dream, no matter what it is, as long as you work hard for it. I do believe that hard work pays
off in the end and I am living proof of that. Practice, research and learn as much as you can
to reach your goals.
Niko: If you really want to do this work hard, learn from your mistakes and always practice
to become a well-rounded make-up artist. It takes discipline to be successful.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Cat: Without the education and support I received from Make-Up Designory I would never
have made it on the show. MUD really helped to prepare me for the challenges we faced.
Niko: Having a great education from MUD really helped me in this industry. I didn’t realize
I had this talent inside of me and that I would love make-up so much until I followed my
dream, moved to LA and attended MUD.

Approach in Ukraine
MUD Courses in Kharkov - Ukraine
What do most Europeans know about Ukraine? “It is somewhere, not far from Russia.”
Ukraine – one of the largest European countries, occupies more than 600,000 square
kilometers and is the second largest country in Europe with over 45 million residents.
Full of a variety of talent in art, science and sports, Ukrainians have changed the world’s
view of the country that is often hard to locate without a map. Ukraine’s history is full of
dramatic and tragic events, although not long ago, they began writing a different story
on their own of victory and triumph. But as all artists know, beauty and art can never be
stopped. The idea of the US-born Make-Up Designory has grown abroad to a number of
countries and continents including the Ukraine.

Paul Thompson
Director of Education
Tell us more about your typical day.
As a make-up artist I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my career. One of the things we teach faculty
members of MUD is that we want them to live by certain standards. These standards are the
qualities and traits of great teachers. I’ve studied great teachers, but a lot came from learning
from mistakes I made early on in my career. When I followed the standards I was creating, I saw
better results.
Every day is a little different from the next; I am traveling a lot right now. I work very closely
with our educational partners to ensure MUD’s core philosophies and principles are followed. I
also spend time talking with our teachers and different partners across the world and in the US
making sure they are supported and have what they need from us. I’m currently in the process
developing curriculum, providing training for new teachers and producing educational videos
and content for use online by our faculty and students. And on the top of that, I’m rewriting our
Beauty textbook.
What advice would you give young Paul?
I thought about this a little while ago. The best advice that I would give to a young version
of me is “be careful of being too trusting” and “be cautious”. Early on in my career I was too
trusting with everyone.
Is the day long enough for all the projects you run?
No, not at all. I try to prioritize my projects every day. With so many things happening at once,
I plan certain times for different things. For example, I try to write for the first two hours of the
morning. Whether it is curriculum or the textbook, I need to make sure I allocate time each day.
If you were completely unleashed, would you recognize that person?
I am that unleashed person right now. I throw so much energy and passion into what
I do; it is hard to turn it off. I am extremely positive and truly believe we can achieve
anything we set our mind too. So when I go into a classroom, I am passionate and full of
energy. It is not enough for me to simply teach the student, the student must learn. So I give
each student everything I have to help them learn. By the end of the day you find yourself
mentally and emotionally spent. You go home and find yourself in front of the TV, because
you don’t want to talk to anybody else, you gave it all. So that’s kinda how I am. When I’m in
that environment, when I’m in the moment, I’m giving them my all. I want it to be great. I
don’t have all the answers to make MUD huge, but I know where my strengths are, so I push
very hard in those areas to make the company better. So, with all of our schools around the
world that are teaching our curriculum, I make sure those teachers share my passion and
philosophy. I encourage them to throw all of their energy and passion into it and love what
they do. I want all of our students to benefit from this level of effort and attention. Basically
I ask the same thing from our teachers that I ask of myself.
So, you have an agenda every day to organize tasks that are waiting for you?
(smile) I wake up in the morning and I manage a list of all the big, big things I need to get
done and from there I try to prioritize. I try to tackle as many of them as possible. The funny
thing about today and technology is that we are so connected—you plan your day and till the end
of your day you’re being stretched. It may be that a person in a classroom 3000 miles away is
having a problem, so I stop what I’m doing and start resolving the issue.
Do you have assistants that can relieve you?
I do have help; just not an assistant per se. I did have an assistant once, she was brilliant,
highly motivated and I miss her badly. The challenge is that my work is very dynamic and
involves a lot of faculty training for our partners around the world. The training that we do is
somewhat unique with each partner. We custom tailor each certification course to meet the
requirements of the school and the faculty members we are training. Currently, MUD Los
Angeles instructors Marianne Toccalino and David Langford have been very helpful with this
process. Rita Botelho is our Director of Operations for all of our school partners. She has taken
on so much; she has really helped clear my plate so I can focus. Our company is growing so
quickly that I am relying more and more on the team of people around me.
In all the years that you’ve taught and witnessed students do well in the
business, have you seen people change because of their success?
What makes you happy?
I love what I do, I love to teach. I marry the love of teaching with the passions in my life,
make-up and art.
I do know a lot of famous make-up artists that are graduates of MUD. But, there really isn’t
a lot of “fame” in make-up, just great work. When I see students that are really successful, I see
happiness, more than I see ego. They tend to remember where they came from and the love of
what they are doing.
I think the best people in any type of work don’t have big egos. I have run into the biggest
names and they were the ones that were just so gracious and so wonderful.
Do you feel completely fulfilled?
Why do some make-up artists seem so snooty?
Oh, completely. I feel very lucky to do what I do. I often say you can’t do this for the money,
you have to do it for the love, money will come. If you put your heart, your soul into this, it will
just come. That passion has evolved for me. I started teaching early on in my career in different
schools. I taught in UCLA for a while, I taught in couple of other make-up schools, and also in
seminars. I loved it so much that I really grew with it.
I honestly think it boils down to insecurities. A good friend of mine, his name is Beto
Franca, is probably the most prolific MUA in Brazil. The work he does is spot on, gorgeous, just
phenomenal make-up work.
He is the most humble, nicest person. He talks about his make-up like it’s just his work.
When he came to study special make-up effects with us, his interaction with the students was
not “I am a make-up artist and I’ve been in this business for 30 years and I’m fantastic,” it was
“oh my gosh, what project are you working on; oh, what’s happening over here...” He was so
excited about what everyone was doing in that class, so curious and down to earth and willing to
help the students. That’s what I see when I see a very secure MUA. They have nothing to prove,
nothing to go on about.
So, you find your pleasure in work?
Yes for sure, I am a workaholic. I’m not a workaholic because I hate it.
Do you have free time?
Yes I do, I absolutely do. I probably should take some time off here and there more often.
I really love my family; I enjoy spending time with them, so when I have that free time I take
full advantage of it. In addition, you need down time to stay creative in this industry and to stay
creative as a teacher, you have to be a fan of what you’re teaching. I’m a fan of movies and TV
shows, I’m a fan of make-up in general. I just think make-up is cool, and I’m a fan of teaching
as well. Nothing excites me more than seeing someone teach a class really well!
Do you learn from your students?
Of course. In the classroom you learn from every single mistake a student makes. And
sometimes there are such crazy mistakes, that you are like “oh my god, I could use this for
something else” or, “I have never ever seen that happen in person, ever.” So, often times I am
experiencing things that would take me a lifetime to learn. As they work and as they grow as
artists they start to bring great ideas to the table. They start to do things that maybe we had never
thought of.
Is that an achievement for you, when students do well?
Yes, you’re a good teacher when you consider your accomplishments to be a student’s success.
When a student succeeds, it’s a strange feeling, you feel like a proud parent. It’s a bit of an
addictive feeling. I have two daughters and I’m proud of both of them, I love them, every day they
make me proud –it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. These are just some of the rewards of being
a parent. But as a teacher, you get to feel this every so often, so every time you hear a student
does extremely well, or does something great, or even just accomplishes something great in the
classroom, you get this proud feeling. They really did it! And they did it because of the hard work
they put in and how you guided them and how you inspired them. It is an amazing experience. So
I think that’s also why people get into teaching. It’s because this feeling is addictive, you want to
feel that you are contributing to a greater good in some way. My greater good is making make-up
artists, so make-up artists can make prettier people and we have pretty people all over the world
(laughs). But, on a side note, we’re doing something else as teachers at Make-up Designory. We
are helping people achieve their dreams. We are helping them achieve something they didn’t
know was entirely possible. And we’re guiding them to a place that, without us, they may never
ever achieve. And that right there is… that’s the real reward.
Are you dreaming of doing make-up on a face you haven’t done yet? And
who would that be?
No, not really. I love working with people and most of my favorite faces are my favorite because
they were nice people. I still do make-up, even though it’s not in the film industry anymore. My
focus has turned to education and creating the single best educational experience for students.
Don’t get me wrong, I still do a lot of different types of make-up; I just now do it for students and
faculty members. In the film business you are always doing make-up that somebody else wants.
Now, I get to do whatever make-up I want to do—I create my own guidelines and that’s kind of cool.
What is the difference between MUAs from the time you started and today’s
artist? Do you see a difference?
What I am seeing now is that there is a broader respect for make-up artists as a whole. It
used to be, if you worked in film or television, you were a respected make-up artist. All the
other fields that used make-up, whether it be a salon or spa or even retail, didn’t really get that
respect. But now, if you go to a make-up counter, especially a good line, you are getting advice
from a make-up artist.
Cosmetic companies are seeing that there is a value in hiring a make-up artist, someone
who can provide someone with a product and the real knowledge of how to use it. Recently, in
Looking back over the years, was there ever a moment when you felt like “I
should have done that”?
Yeah, all the time actually, yesterday I shouldn’t have stayed up till 3 o’clock in the morning.
We grow when we make mistakes. Failing and making mistakes are just learning events in life.

I KNOW MAKE-UP.™
al deal
Mexico, there has been a change in the way people view make-up artists. Before, there wasn’t
even a term for the profession. It wasn’t art. But now, it is becoming a respected career. We
have a little school in Guadalajara and our challenge there is to change the perspective of what a
make-up artist is in Mexico.
What are the most important attributes every make-up artist should have?
Well, the single most important thing that every make-up artist should possess is a good
attitude. If you don’t have good attitude it is going to be very hard to work in this industry. You
need to be positive, have high energy and just be a team player.
It is so interesting that you started with advising about a good attitude
before talent.
Oh yes! Talent is just another way to say well practiced. As a make-up artist, you need to
practice your art all of the time. You need talent to get your foot in the door and to keep it there.
But, if you have a bad attitude, talent is not enough. People will likely prefer to work with a
talented person with a good attitude. So, I think you should learn your craft and focus on making
sure you’re the best, but attitude – it will waste talent every time.
Paul Thompson, what is next for you?
Right now, my immediate focus is getting our faculty members at all of our Studios and
Partner Schools trained to provide our students with that exceptional education and to inspire
them to be great teachers and great artists. Also, to finish the Beauty textbook and workbook and
create something that is a great representation of MUD. I’d like to see MUD reach a level that we
haven’t seen yet. I am really looking into the future right now and I feel like we are at this point
as a company, ready to take over the world.
Wow.
I think that once we get to that size, all the other cosmetic companies are going to be
wondering what the heck happened because MUD is the real deal. We started with education and
continue to provide the best make-up education in the world. We did not start with a product
line and then build education around it. It has always been about teaching our students and
helping them into the industry. And, we have grown very, very fast because of that effort.
Do you see yourself as a motivator for the MUD team and not just among
your students?
Yeah, I really try. I mean, my role is mainly in education. But, I try to inspire whomever I am
around. I believe so completely in our company and what we are trying to do. We also work with
a lot of partners around the world and they need to share our vision and our goals. They need
to be inspired, so I will often find myself in that role. Our faculty members, which I think there
may be as many as 90 individuals between all of our schools, are the face of our company. Those
teachers need to believe in this education as I believe in it. They need to inspire our students
to do better, to risk more and to go to extraordinary lengths to succeed. And the only way this
message is getting out is if I preach it every day.
We have so many great people in this company and I want to inspire them to do well and to do
well for our customers. That, I think, is where my strengths lie.

Great. You have such a power—you’ve convinced me. I didn’t believe in this
story about 2 years ago. But now, every day I believe more.
You know I want to spread the word to our partners; I want to spread the message of what
MUD is and how you can grow your own business. Our founding philosophies revolve around
treating the student as the customer. Create an exceptional educational experience for the
student and treat them with a high level of respect. Treat the student fairly, honestly and truly
care about the students’ success – and, the business will grow.
Ok, great. It was really a pleasure. Thank you.
My pleasure, you’re welcome.

LA Lead Make-up Artist
Beauty Beyond Borders
You may recognize his face from the MUD video tutorials, but Sean
Conklin is out to do more than show you how to get the smoky eye. As a
MUD veteran and graduate, Sean has taken on a new role to help MUD
clients get the product knowledge support they need.
The MUD Studio concept was conceived to bring Make-Up Designory’s
highly regarded make-up education and professional brand of cosmetics
to locations worldwide. The studio courses are built from the same
curriculum that comprise the longer programs at MUD, but are broken
up into smaller modules. These studio courses can be taken separately
or combined, giving the student the option to transfer their education to
one of MUD’s Main Campuses in New York or Los Angeles in the US.
So far, Sean has travelled to MUD locations both in the US and internationally to help
educate schools, distributors and artists on MUD’s full color cosmetic line. Traveling to
tradeshows and other events on the east and west coast, Guatemala, England and South
Africa, Sean looks forward to a busy year supporting MUD partners.
So what are some of the most talked about topics no matter where he is in the world?
“Everyone wants to know what the latest trends are, how to create the perfect smoky eye
and of course living in L.A., what celebrities I’ve worked on,” say Sean.
When he’s not traveling the world, spreading the word about the benefits of MUD products,
Sean can be found in the corporate office working with the Product Development Manager,
doing vigorous product testing while working with Sales and Marketing.
When it comes to success, Sean’s number one piece of advice for aspiring artists is to
stay professional and dress to impress. “First impressions are important. Know the latest
trends and know your competition. While on set, befriend everyone since you never know
who you may work with in the future and most importantly, smile!”
MUD partners are encouraged to contact their sales rep to request training at their site
with Sean for extensive training on MUD products for their students or staff.
As the MUD brand grows globally, MUD Studios are expanding to countries like Italy, Egypt,
Belgium, Slovenia, Nigeria, Guatemala and Mexico. These retail and classroom facilities bring
both the MUD retail and educational experiences together. From Studio Courses that certify
artists upon completion, to smaller workshops for the general consumer, MUD Studios are
founded on a great business model for any beauty industry professional. Studio owners are
provided with all the tools they need to provide the very best training in make-up artistry such
as kits, certificates, instructor training, online faculty support and curricula.

“Everyone melted when she sang!”
Irena Preda
It was an honor to talk to the outstanding opera singer Irena Preda. With her career path
already successful and rising, Irena is modestly aware that there is still a lot to be done. I was
mesmerized with her story and very impressed with her expertise in linguistic expression
as well as her remarkable sense for music of all genres.
The amazingly talented singer hails from the city of Ljubljana. She performs constantly and
has so far performed all across Europe as well as China, India, Israel and Sri Lanka.
Her vocal studies began in Ljubljana and only a few years later, she was offered a place at the
renowned Trinity College of Music in London, where she studied with esteemed teachers
and singers and graduated with distinction. While studying singing, she also took acting
with acting greats like Jeremy Irons, Imelda Staunton and Jonathan Pryce.
Two days after she graduated, she made her stage debut in the title role of Bizet’s opera
Carmen and has since performed before Queen Elizabeth II., at the World EXPO in Shanghai
and at the Westminster Cathedral. Her recent performances include concerts in Prague, Tel
Aviv, Mumbai and the Houses of Parliament in London, a recital in Edinburgh, starring in
the critically acclaimed play All together now!, as well as making her Slovenian National
Opera debut and she is currently preparing for her first performance in the US this coming
May, when she gives a recital at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC.

I KNOW MAKE-UP.™
“What a wonderful voice! Maravillosa!”
Montserrat Caballé
How would you describe the essence of feminine energy and where do you draw upon it
yourself?
The essence of a woman is most beautiful when it is a sum of several elements. In my eyes it is a
combination of grace, elegance, self-confidence and above all, kindness. On the stage I draw upon
them from the characters I portray. They often face great personal trials and turmoil, most of which can
also resonate with women today.
I am, in life in general, inspired by the incredible women I am surrounded with. First and foremost my
mother and the memories of my two amazing grandmothers as well as my wonderful friends who are
admirable artists, doctors, teachers, diplomats, social activists, mothers and sometimes even all this at
once. Nature, physical activity - swimming, tai chi and dancing - and meditation are also important to
me for maintaining a good energy level. I surround myself with things that bring me joy, be it spending
time with my family, friends, seeing a good concert, play, a ballet or contemporary dance performance
- all these enrich me and enable me to then share this energy when I am on stage.
Your stage presence is simply impossible to miss. How important is a good connection with
the audience to you?
It is the most important thing, the very basis of any good performance for me. I cannot imagine doing
justice to my calling without it. Without communication there is no relationship. In its absence we would
be mere figures which might look nice and possess an impressive technique, but would do nothing to
move you. We spend years training, improving, striding to reach a level that will best enable us to relay
the stories of our characters, the music, the poetry all with but one ambition: to bring joy to the people
sitting in the auditorium or listening to all this amazing music at home. I want the audience to feel what
my character is going through, not just hear it. I want them to be in the character’s journey, to relate
to them almost involuntarily. When I feel that they are with me in my every breath, every nuance of a
phrase, then I feel a sense of completion. Those moments are priceless.
Where do you draw inspiration for your incredible interpretations?
The inspiration most often arises from the story itself. When it comes to music, the life story of a poet or
composer can also offer great insight into how a certain piece of music came to be and that can greatly
define the way I approach a particular song. I love movies and can sometimes easily draw parallels
between the characters in the opera and the films. However, I find that what works best for me is to try
and find things that could correlate in my life and my own experience.
Which of the roles in your repertoire do you relate to the most?
I try to find something to relate to in every role that I portray. I love Tatyana from Eugene Onegin who
transforms from an innocent girl into a very graceful and dignified woman. I really enjoyed Carmen as
well, as I loved playing a temperamental woman who is self-assured and since the role includes some
dancing as well, it was especially fun.
Who in the music world was your greatest influence?
The first name that comes to mind, naturally, is the legendary soprano Montserrat Caballé. However,
I have to say that my teachers are right up there with her. I am grateful to them for recognizing in
me someone worth investing in. They shared their knowledge in such a way that best built me into
who I am today. Firstly, Pia Brodnik, my teacher from Ljubljana, whom I studied with before going to
Trinity College of Music in London and later on, my teachers at Trinity. I must also emphasize that
other singers, pianists, conductors and theory teachers all contributed to an incredibly supportive and
collaborative environment. Add to that the vast variety of musical performances and other arts that are
constantly available when living in a metropolis like London and I cannot imagine a better springboard
for a young musician.
What other genre aside from opera do you enjoy?
Quite a bit of it, naturally, is opera and art song, as well as some concertos and symphonies. As I
mentioned, I like various types of music, everything from blues from way back in the 20’s and 30’s
to contemporary classical minimalism. There are staples that are always on my playlist in some way.
Albums by artists like Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen, Sarah Vaughan, Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis, Roberta
Flack, Jill Scott, Common, Motown etc. Lately I mostly play new albums by Gregory Porter, N’Toko and
the amazing Swedish jazz singer Emilia Martensson. As much as I enjoy listening to music, nothing
compares to seeing a great artist perform live!
Would you say that good make-up can enhance femininity? And if so, in what way?
Absolutely. Not only can it enhance it but at times bring it out altogether. A lot more happens in the
make-up room than just adding paint onto a face. It is often that final but crucial part of creating a
character that helps me turn into someone else and walk on stage as someone completely different
than I was perhaps just a moment before. It also helps cover up tiny imperfections or remnants of a
busy schedule as well as adding to a posture of confidence. I am fortunate that my profession enables
me to enjoy the benefits of working with the very best make-up artists in the field. Most performances,
particularly those in opera, are a result of team work, of which highly skilled make-up artists are an
absolutely essential part.
How long do the preparations – make-up and styling – take before you step on stage? Is that
a time of relaxation for you or do you use it to prepare mentally?
It usually takes between two to four hours, though depending on how intricate the costume and makeup of the character is, or if for instance, a wig fitting is involved, it can take much longer.
Mental preparations start taking place much earlier. I tend to have a clear vision of how I wish the entire
performance to look many weeks, sometimes months in advance. On the day of the performance,
however, I like to allow plenty of time for all the necessary preparations. Having a well organized
professional team around ensures an environment with no need for stress and insecurity. A peaceful
environment is very important for good preparation. I like to be completely ready and done with
everything at least forty-five minutes before going on stage.
Which make-up item is never missing from your cosmetic bag?
Mascara, blush and at least one shade of lipstick. I always keep moisturizer and lip ointment close at
hand as well.
What’s your favorite Make-Up Designory item?
The quality of MUD products is outstanding. My favorite item at the moment is the cream foundation,
which has a high percentage of pigment. It comes particularly in handy when I am pressed for time as it
not only discreetly covers imperfections but also provides a great foundation for further applications. It
is just one of the many excellent MUD products that help me achieve my desired look on a daily basis.
What does your usual day look like?
I try to maintain certain rituals. Sometimes more, sometimes less successfully. (laughs) I start the day
with breathing exercises and very gradual warming up. At times I wait until I feel that the body is fully
awake before beginning to speak and warming up the voice. I do Tai Chi and Qi Gong in the first light
of day and whenever possible I go swimming in the morning as I find that it infuses my entire day with
a certain positive attitude and enthusiasm for work.
Breakfast is usually followed by more advanced warm up exercises and then I start going through the
repertoire. Depending on what I have set up for the day, I either study new repertoire, take meetings,
go to rehearsals - sometimes two or three in a day - have lunch with friends or colleagues or just stay
in the practice room and enjoy exploring the music in depth.
How do you take care of your voice and your health, especially in winter months?
I take care that I keep warm when the temperatures are low, spend limited time outside when it is very
cold, particularly when I have performances or lots of travelling coming up. I watch that the food I eat
is not too taxing on the body. I love herbal teas. I either pick the herbs myself whenever possible or
the kind people in my life supply me with them. If I feel that my immune system needs an additional
boost, I simply increase the intake of vitamin-and-fiber-rich foods through various types of smoothies.
Naturally, I also pamper myself with the right dose of guilty pleasures just for the sake of balance.
I enjoy spending time outdoors very much. The connection with nature and meditation are a great
source of both calm and energy for me. Other than that, spending time with my friends and my family
is vital. And dancing - lots and as often as possible! (laughs)

Next to opera I greatly enjoy the very different, more intimate setting of performing art songs. I enjoy
collaborations, working with a partner, exchanging ideas, finding a common voice. Such partnership is
absolutely essential in chamber music.
Outside of classical music my musical roots are primarily in soul music and many of its various
expressions. I love neo-soul, jazz and really good hip-hop. I enjoy a good album, be it jazz, blues, world
music, folk, rock, pop – the best ones tend to transcend their genres in any case.
I do my best to maintain an open mind though having very limited spare time renders me increasingly
more selective. A long time ago I sang in a blues band for a short while, later on, while studying in
London, I loved singing in a gospel choir and working with a tango quintet, but nowadays I don’t really
have the time to seriously dedicate myself to another genre. But if Stevie Wonder calls… (laughs)

combined, allowing the student to transfer their education to one of
MUD’s main campuses.
