Hair and Make-up Artist
I’m Raney O’Keefe, a makeup artist & hairstylist living in Atlanta, GA. I moved here from my home in the Pacific Northwest in 2006 with a diploma in makeup artistry from The Blanche MacDonald Centre for Applied Design in Vancouver, BC. My 20-ish years previous were spent ensconced in the theatre world. (Yep-big, fat, wonderful, cheesy musicals!). I spend a tremendous amount of my time traveling the world (most often with my amazing adventuresome husband) and this experience bleeds deeply into my approach as an artist, as well as a service provider. I definitely discover really cool products and regimens that are authentic to certain areas that I travel to. But extensive travel has also really sharpened my ability to pay attention with all my senses. So I listen better, look more closely, try harder, and have more curiosity and tolerance for diversity. My eyes and ears and heart are open wide. And that’s something I bring back home to my work, and to you.
