Happy New Year

Well, it seems I haven’t blogged for quite a while because I’ve been a busy, and not so busy bee!  Lots of work followed by a long vacation that was overdue.

2017 was a big transition year for me.  After 6 seasons, the much beloved show Grimm came to an end.  Grimm was in large part why I became a full time makeup artist, and was able to do a career change.  It also was my family.  It will be sorely missed.

I worked on Dean Devlin’s feature Bad Samaritan next, which was a real treat.  I got to know the crew of The Librarians better because of it, and we went through some crazy times in the snow! 

That film was followed by Ecco, which filmed in Seattle.  I had never filmed there more than a day or two before this film.  It was fun putting faces to the names I had been hearing about for years on the crew scene.  I also got lost daily, but by the end of the film I was doing much better!

This summer I spent in Oregon City with crew of Everything Sucks!, a new show from Netflix.  What an amazing cast and crew!  We had a blast recreating the 90’s.  There were some fun flashback moments for the crew that were the right age to remember those times.   We also did some prosthetic work for the Librarians and Portlandia.

There was a commercial for Kroger that brought back some of my favorite characters.....the Kroger vampire, witch, and werewolf!  An orc for Microsoft Mixer followed.  There were other projects scattered in there as well.

What a year!

I wrapped it up by going to Europe with my husband for our 10 year anniversary.  We spent 20 days together.  That’s the longest we’ve hung out since our honeymoon!  Well, we had a blast and can’t wait to go back.

I am headed to IMATS tradeshow next week and looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones!
