Creating horrors a favourite pastime

Alex works as an administrator in the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) at Waikato District Health Board (DHB). Outside of work, she is a free-lance special effects make-up artist.

Twenty-three year old Alex competed, and won, two years in a row in the BodyFX and SpecialFX competition at the Armageddon expo held in Auckland.

What Alex enjoys the most about her creations is seeing the reactions of people’s faces when they see her work, “seeing the ‘wow’ look”, as she says. To Alex, it is a sign that people appreciate her work, which gives her a sense of accomplishment.

Recently Alex “starred” in a feature article in Waikato Times’ Arts and Entertainment section. Read the full article here
