My name is Shidoshi and I am a professional face and body artist. I got involved in this field of work shortly after watching Brian and Nick Wolfe do some of their stuff at The Midwest Haunter’s Convention in Columbus, Ohio. I took some classes and workshops on face painting techniques which led me into an opportunity as a makeup artist for a local haunted house which also allowed me to improve on my SFX makeup skills.
I spent a lot of time practicing on my own and signing up for whatever classes and workshops I felt would teach me and I’ve been incredibly fortunate to paint alongside and learn from masters in the field such as Marcella Murad, Nix Herrerra (“Face-Off” Season 2), Athena Zhe (“Face-Off” Season 2), Jackie Steinart and Pashur.
The tools of my trade are sponge, brush and airbrush and I use only professional-grade tools and materials. I’ve developed my own signature style and I zealously seek out opportunities to learn more and work with other great artists and models to create amazing works of art. I perform my services under the banner of “Kabuki Body Art” – providing precision makeup services for every daring artistic endeavor. I am also a makeup artist, sculptor and fabricator for MORBID FX – a professional SFX studio in Columbus, Ohio.
My services run the gamut of your creative imagination. If you’re wanting to do something original and conceptually adventurous, I’m the one you’re looking for. Whether it be digital/photographic design, prosthetic application, full or partial body paint, live performance makeup design or even simple yet professional face painting your child’s birthday, I’m only an email away.
