Owners / Artist / Lead Trainer
Being raised in the arts by her father, Stephen Shortridge, a nationally acclaimed artist, Hayley Shortridge-Gabriel followed in her father’s footsteps and became a professional artist in 2005 selling her fine art in galleries from California to Florida.
Hoping to offer her creativity beyond the traditional canvas she decided to apply her skills in fine art to the human canvas and that’s when her business True Life Canvas was formed. Hayley received her certification in permanent cosmetics from Permanent Cosmetique International based in San Francisco, California established in 1989.
In 2012 and again in 2019, Hayley received the coveted title of “Top 30 Under 40 Business Professionals” by the North Idaho Business Journal. She’s been featured in numerous publications, podcasts and has been asked to be a speaker at multiple industry conferences. Because of Hayley’s extensive background in fine art, she is precise at creating a naturally beautiful look customized to your satisfaction.
Whether Hayley is working with a person or a canvas each application is executed with precision and detail. Regardless of the application, colors are hand picked and blended to achieve the perfect shade the client is looking for. So… Do you want just anyone to tattoo makeup on your face? Or do you want a professional-artist who is a certified specialist in permanent cosmetics with a fine arts foundation?
