Artistry by Jax began in 2010 when Jaclyn moved to Vancouver, BC from Parksville, Vancouver Island. That is when Jaclyn auditioned to be a part of the CFL’s BC Lions Cheerleading team. Becoming a professional performer inspired Jax’s passion for makeup and she wanted to learn more about all of the many different techniques and styles. In 2013 Jaclyn started to pursue her passion for artistry at New Image College of Fine Arts in Vancouver, BC. Here she was able to work with many elite makeup artists and began working on photo shoots and film sets before getting her full certification. Throughout her experience at New Image she fell in love with all aspects of makeup; from taking care of your skin through proper routines, to creating glamorous beauty makeup applications and contructing complex special effects looks. By the time Jax had graduated in June 2014 she was well on her way to a successful career as a freelance makeup artist and cosmetician.
“I love what I do and I love my clients. I am incredibly passionate about my work and making sure it is continually evolving and staying on point with new trends. I feel fortunate to be able to say that every day when I go to work I get to do what I love and am always meeting new and inspiring people. It is something I get to look forward to each day.” says Jaclyn.
