Who is Maria Zen Zucchero?

Maria was born and raised in Illinois
to Italian parents. She graduated from Elmhurst University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Marketing. After completing her education, she decided she wanted to take some time off to travel and explore what the world had to offer. As an inspiring artist, she found her niche in makeup & and skin. Maria knew M.A.C. Cosmetics was a dream job and landed a position downtown Chicago at Marshall Fields on State Street. There she knew the journey began as a makeup artist for weddings, events, commercials, movies & and more.
After years of learning dance, she obtained a talent agent to explore the avenue of professional modeling, dance, and commercials. Her exploration of working hard towards her dreams was the pinnacle of her achieving roles in performing for some artists in the industry. She can still remember the callback like it was yesterday for the movie soundtrack “Shrek” for the Baja Men “Best Years of our Lives”. Maria had the audition, landed it, and had to tape the music video at the Aragon in Chicago with some of the best artists, and producers in the industry. Followed by artists R Kelly, for “ I Wish”, and at Chicago Theater for “Franky Beverly & Maize”. One of her grandest moments was the Radio Music Awards in Las Vegas where she was invited to watch performances by Christiana Aguilera, Jayz, Enrique Iglesias,  Ricky Martin & and so many more.
Soon after her last performance, she set off to expand her talents to England where she continued her education as a prosthetic & and special effects artist. This soon ended abruptly for Maria because September 11 happened and led her to leave London and back home to Chicago.
Maria found her calling in helping others and decided that she wanted to pursue a career that included her passions: science, aesthetics, art, and business. The four worked harmoniously in later helping her envision and create Her first business Abella Cosmetics, her second business Circle Edge Productions, her third business Mediestheticsgroup and finally House of Gemneyemz where Zenscriptions was conceived.

     Although a wanderlust at heart, Maria finally settled in Florida where she would go on to study esthetics, laser devices & and nails. Trained by world-renowned professionals in each industry, she has dedicated herself to providing excellence and perfection in each individual craft. Maria’s desire to help others, work ethic, attention to detail, and appreciation for the arts and sciences are what motivates her to provide the best possible experience for each and every one of her clients.
She is currently a level lll Reiki Master, crystal & and chakra energy healer, orgonite creator, and bracelet jewelry maker. (More in bio on the website)
