Jennifer Drew | 07805044471| jennifer@maximalfx.com

My portfolio is diverse, taking inspiration from history, art, fantasy and contemporary culture, with an emphasis on realism. I am experienced in character design, the making and application of prosthetic appliances, sculpting, wig design, postiche, prop design and hairdressing.
I’m quick to adapt to new working environments whether it be working in my studio in East London, creating effects on set or applying makeup with fast turnarounds backstage in the theatre and in busy crowd rooms.
