I am currently based in Atlanta, GA. I often travel back and forth to North Carolina as well. I am a Makeup Artist, specializing in Special Effects, Beauty and Body Painting. I'm willing to travel anywhere in the US and I'm ready for the world with my Passport (travel expenses and per-diem to be paid in advance)!
I'm a very creative person, with great attention to detail. I'm very good with people and with MUA work, I always try to keep the talent/client very comfortable and aware of what is going on at all times. I enjoy being hands-on and I always embrace moments to learn something new.
Amber was our special effects makeup artist on a recent music video shoot. It was our first time working with an SFX makeup artist and Amber set a high bar. Not only was she extremely professional but we were all blown away by her talent and efficiency. She was all around amazing to work with and I can’t wait to work with her again.
On behalf of the team at Dominar Films, I cannot recommend Amber highly enough!
I can't say enough positive things about Amber! From our very first communication, she was attentive, responsive, professional, and what I appreciated the most - excited about my proposed project. I hired her for a Darth Talon body paint for HeroesCon 2014. I sent her the lekku headpiece to paint in advance. The day of the Con, she spent a meticulous FOUR HOURS turning me in to Darth Talon. And the result was spectacular! I definitely want to work with her again!
You won't really find a more qualified and talented make-up/painter artist than Amber. Most people do it on weekends or a party when the occasion arises. Amber does this practically every day. And she doesn't just paint a silly design on a face, like most of us think of when we think face painting. Amber's skill so out distances herself from the competition. Wether it's full body painting, to makeup accessories like horns or zipper faces, to actual real makeup. You just can't beat her level of skill and expertise...don't believe Me...her work speaks for itself.
Amber has a unique fresh, unique perspective that shows in everything she does. Whether she's building horrifying monsters, painting elegant goddesses or documenting the world with her camera, the outcome is always remarkable. She is very open, respective, patient and fun when working with her models! I recommend her highly!
I hired Amber as my Make-Up FX and Art Director for the music video "My Dying Time", performed by guitar legend Zakk Wylde's (Ozzy Osbourne) band Black Label Society. I gave her a few leads but pretty much let her have free reign over the look of all the Actors and she delivered ten fold. Since then the video has garnered well over half a million views in just a couple months and has been the spearhead for their world wide marketing campaign, far exceeding everyones expectations including my own.
So needless to say, she knows her stuff.
