SFX Makeup Work
I am a versatile Special Effects Makeup Artist with extensive experience in a variety of makeup applications, including content creation, editorial magazine work, face painting, and FX for film. I excel in creating realistic wounds, scars, and artistic/editorial looks and have mastered the skills of prosthetics, face painting, and video/photo editing. With my passion for makeup artistry and ability to adapt to various projects, I am dedicated to producing high-quality and memorable results.
I call myself as "Shapeshifter," because of how many looks I can transition into through SFX makeup.

Through Their Red Eyes
The makeup explores the fusion of two distinct themes - the "final girl" and the cyborg. A prosthetic was designed to enhance the realism of the look, featuring LED lights embedded within it. The result is a unique and captivating portrayal of the marriage between these two worlds.

The Anatomy of Asian Cyborg
This editorial look examines the historical dehumanization of Asian people in Western sci-fi portrayals of Asian cyborgs. The focus is on themes of self-hybridization as a form of reclaiming agency, identity and personhood, and on highlighting creatives who are challenging stereotypes by reclaiming the Asian cyborg in their works. The aim is to challenge the traditional techno-orientalist representations of the Asian cyborg and instead celebrate the intersection of humanity, spirit and technology.
