Before I even put brush to powder, I think about the person sitting in my chair. What will bring out their natural beauty? What can I do to make them feel themselves or to feel a character through and through? There are certain rules to follow when making a person up for the stage, film, or HD cameras. I give nods to each of these classic techniques, but apply a certain truth element to everything I touch. Above all, my art-form is about essence. This is how you summon the truth from make-up.
I Make It Up True.
A Selection of Work
"I love the faces of the grass roots characters in the films you have worked on. You do such a wonderful job with make-up in presenting their personalities instead of glamorizing."
