Rochelle was always an artist, painting for as long as she can remember. She had her first studio before even starting kindergarten. Well, that’s what she called the cardboard refrigerator box with a tiny easel inside that sat in the corner of her bedroom. The real studio would come many years later after a Fine Arts Degree in Missouri and furthering her artistry skills at the Makeup Designory in Hollywood, making the face her canvas.
Rochelle returned to Austin, Texas and began working with photographers, designers, filmmakers and served as Director of Makeup for runway shows at New York Fashion Week, Austin Fashion Week and for Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 Grid Girls. Her client list included high profile clients such as Zac Posen, Susan Dell, Gayle King, Bonnie Rait, CNN, MTV, The Rachel Ray Show, Oxygen Magazine and many others.
