Profile and About Dhyana Renee Makeup Artist


That's me with Jesse Ventura, we are at the WTC
interviewing NY's Finest for his "Conspiracy Theory"
Series. A.Smith and M. Breverman wanted me to cut
Jesse's hair off. He wanted his hair. So, when we
landed in Battery Park, I walked to the Duane Reade
and picked up a package of tiny black rubber bands.
Then I slicked his hair back, put it into a ponytail and
groomed the flyways. We called it his "Steven Seagal
Look". Everyone was happy, and his look for the TV
Series was born.

Originally, I was attending a private art school in Florida,
intent on becoming a fine portrait artist working in pencils
and pastels. My journey then took a turn and brought me
onto this path which began in Toronto, ON. There I was
mentored by Award Winning Makeup Artists: Jordan Samuel,
Colin Penman, and Patricia Keighran. Then I set sail to the
NY Metro area, where I worked steadily over the last 8 years.
There I became known for my cleanliness, calm demeanor and
beautiful work.I had become a sought after Makeup Artist and
Hairstylist which was met with a heart full of joy and gratitude.
Those winds of change have blown once again and now I have
landed in Atlanta, GA. (Y'allywood)

Throughout my career, various production companies
have hired me to work i film,television, commercial, video,
editorial and theatre. With a naturally artistic approach
to my work, I am always intent on creating a masterpiece
with the talent that is placed in front of me. Whether it be
creating a specific character type on an actor or re-defining
a model's beauty, I demonstrate outstanding work. With
openness and a keen eye, I take into consideration the story,
sets, lighting, wardrobe and the character backstory. This
creative process, inclusive to the entire collaboration, is how
I contribute to the story telling experience. For all my efforts,
I have earned Makeup Designer and Key credits, and was the
recipient of a "Best Special Effects Makeup" award in 2010.
I was invited into the IASTE Local 798 in 2012.

With my artistic insight and professional work ethic, I am
confident I will bring a beneficial contribution to your creative
endeavors, and become an integral part of your production

Here is what those I have worked with have had to say:

" I just wanted to reach out and say thank so much for being
on the SJ Couture shoot. I just finished a solid week of retouching the images ....... and by retouching I mean removing wrinkles from
the dresses. The makeup was nearly flawless - you did a beautiful
job and I cannot wait to work with you again. Wanted you to know
that I am your biggest fan!".

- David Patino, Photographer
