“I see my job as encouraging the expression of beauty from within those I have the pleasure of working with."
Robyn Jenkins is driven by her belief in revealing and expressing the beauty of life within each of us and around all of us.
“Whether you’re a bride, an actor, a model, or as an artist, my job is to help facilitate the physical expression of your inner beauty — always to suit the context of the moment. Often it’s for people using hair and make-up. Sometimes, it’s my expression through art. Or photography. Whatever the medium or project, the objective is to create meaningful moments in people’s lives using the physical realm to express their inner beauty. It’s a pleasure and an honour to be part of that personal process with people. I love my work — and helping people realize those impactful moments.”
