ABOUT ME - The Face Behind The Gore - Patrycja
My love for horror movies started at the age of 3. The blood, guts, and creatures made me fall in love with horror movies, or it might off been the fact my mom is born on the day of the dead and my dad is born on April fools.
I started creating small special effects makeup at the age of 15 after watching a horror movie and deciding “I can do that”. It began with some cheap poundland makeup kits, hiding from my parents whilst creating these looks only because they knew the makeup was giving me allergies but that didn't stop me.
However after seeing what I can do and my passion for it they haven’t stopped supporting me to this day.
After experimentations in the house I decided to do some photoshoots and short films to get my name out there, and that’s how I met my boyfriend who introduced me to now a good friend of mine, Mark Danbury ( Vera, League Of Gentlemen). I assisted Mark on films like Tales from the Lodge and Christmas Presence. He's like a teacher to me, helping me learn prosthetics and all glorious bits and bobs you have to know for this industry.
I also can't forget about all the late night dark web searching of dead bodies, real gore and a library of over thousand movies watched throughout the years. Speaking of the web, facebook was also a great help for networking and meeting other artist and filmmakers or photographers.
Now at the age of 23 am working on big feature films, and creating more makeup than ever.
