We had the good fortune of connecting with Christen Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christen, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Being artistically in tune as a young age gave me drive to start my business’. My thought process was “if I have this gift, why not share that with others”.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have just started my small business and have been slowly incorporating all of my many talents within that. I have started providing lash services with many other beauty enhancing trades. Along side of the beauty, I have tapped into creating more art which was my first introduction to the art industry as a whole. I look forward to being able to create and not only for self but continue to for others. Being able to give to others a piece of me that they admire is always a beautiful experience. Continuing to progress and move with confidence has always been the challenging part. It gets easier the more I connect with my art. The most important lesson I’ve learned throughout this entire process is, only you can stop you. My business is a reflection of me as a person and who I cater to.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Deep Ellum is definitely the place to be. The art scenery is amazing. Lots of food, music, beautiful people.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My love of creating and expanding my talents towards the esthetician industry comes from my love of all arts. Being hands on from a young age taught me with the ability I have to create, I can continue to progress in any realm of art I choose to perform in.
