I started working on special effects make-up in my 2009-2010 school year. I started by messing around on my sister's foot after learning how to make "home-made blood". From there, it led to a friend's leg, then myself. Finally, I began to study the art through books and online sources, and bought myself the first of my professional kit.
I've done work for my sister's school (a film class) and for Halloween parties. It's always been free with an optional donation (for more supplies).
