Michelle Grady has been a makeup artist for over 10 years. Upon graduation, she went directly into film, assisting Ryan Nicolson on several projects. She eventually partnered with him, and currently this relationship still thrives.
Having painted in both acrylic and oil mediums, she was a natural candidate for airbrushing, a skill she now specializes in. Michelle competed in the largest body painting festival in the world in Austria and made it into the finals. She also specializes in creature prosthetics, full creature suits, silicone body parts, creature hand puppets, blood rigging, to name a few.
Michelle Grady is a hard-working artist who never says no to a challenge. “Challenges make you better” she often repeats to her students. Although she loves working on set applying and in the lab creating, she excels at teaching in the classroom. She’s been teaching makeup for 7 years.
Michelle’s set work includes Dead Rising 1 & 2, Wayword Pines (Seasons 1 & 2), Tortured (artist for Laurance Fisherman), Ghost Rider, X-Files (Lizzard Episode), The Evil Amoung Us, Lochness Terror and more.
Michelle Grady is another amazing asset to New Image’s team of teachers.
