Description

Being very kinesthetic and having an eye for form I took to sculpture and prosthetics like a duck to water. Having realised this talent and passion maybe later than I would hope I have been working hard to develop a deep understanding of the processes and materials involved and am happily playing and ploughing my way through anything I can get my hands on.
Special FX Makeup is in my view incredible and I am very lucky to have discovered it for myself as it combines all of my strengths and challenges all of my weaknesses, superherodom can’t be far off surely.
