Fantastical Faces – Face and Body Painting
Kelly Carpenter is a self taught special effects makeup artist with 13 years of experience making people spooky beautiful. She began in 2000 doing theatrically based special effects makeup with the Legion of Terror at Bloodview Haunted House, and most recently with the Scare-A-Torium here in Columbus. As her interests have grown, she has branched out into face and body painting. This media has become her main focus. Her partner in crime of 6 years Loraine and their daughter are the inspiration for the craziness that emerges from her brushes and sponges.
