Maya is the makeup artist that you need on set. She’s always on her A game and I’ve seen her handle 10 models without breaking a sweat. She brings a certain calm to her clients and the images that she produces look great on every format.
— Rasheed Daniel, Executive Producer at Ish Entertainment
I have worked with dozens of makeup artists over my years in production and must say that Maya was one of the top that I have ever worked with. She is not only incredibly talented, detail oriented and creative but also the utmost professional. Maya is someone who arrives early and stays late and will do whatever it takes to get the job done and get it done absolutely perfectly. I can’t recommend Maya more highly - both on a personal and a professional level. A true star of her industry.

Maya is easily one of the best make up and hair stylists I have ever worked with during my 30 year career in TV. She is one of the most knowledgeable people in her field. She knows exactly how to give a client the look they want for their actors and models. Her attention to detail in beyond reproach. It’s no surprise to me at all that she is a rising star in the Entertainment business. She’s a pleasure to work with and gets a 5 star recommendation from me.
