I have been doing makeup for as long as I can remember, my grandparents would take me to walk and get me everything I needed to practice. When I was in about 6th grade I remember watching a YouTuber ‘Petrilude’ do a type of makeup I had never seen. He was using things like toilet paper and liquid latex to make fake wounds. I thought it was incredible. They looked so real.
That is where I decided I wanted to really learn special effects. Over the years my love and appreciation for art has grown and I have learned so much. My special effects teacher, Anthony Kosar, really inspires me because he is one of the best in the game. My passion for art in general has grown so much over the years, for me art is something anyone can do and it can bring those from such diverse backgrounds together. I think that’s why I love it so much.
