James Olney

After an extensive career in the design industry James Olney decided to take the leap and quit his job with nothing ahead of him but the belief that he could become a make-up artist. He taught himself as much as he could and plugged the gaps with classical sculpture tuition from renowned artist Andrew Sinclair at The Sculpture School, followed by character creation tuition from Hollywood superstar Don Lanning and then an extensive prosthetics course at Gorton Studio under the incredible Stuart Conran (Hellraiser, Shaun of the Dead, Saving Private Ryan, the list goes on…). In between making contacts and picking up a variety of freelance work he undertook a tenure as special effects lecturer at college level and then transitioned into course assistant at the far more exciting Gorton Studio. James has exhibited at IMATS and The Prosthetics Event, demo’ed at UMAE for The Makeup Armoury and is delighted to be demoing for them again at IMATS London 2019, as well as competing in Battle of the Brushes the day before.
