The year was 2009 when Atlanta body painter and special effects makeup artist Stephanie Anderson watched her career in real estate implode in the midst of the crash of the U.S. economy. That shattered reality became the catalyst for her to explore her artistic talent for painting and sculpture.
After submitting her work to a traveling art show out of Los Angeles by the name of Pancakes and Booze, the show’s curator asked Anderson to paint a living person — the human body as canvas — something she had never done before. With some hesitation, she did, and it sparked a new career and direction in life.
Now living in Atlanta, Anderson has focused her artistic skills and creativity on body painting, makeup and special effects makeup.
