A student of art, and photography, Asha Smith mastered an early understanding of lights and shadows, and textures and shapes. She first began experimenting with the transformative power of makeup on the subjects she photographed. She began to see the human face as her canvas, and makeup as a tool to create art on the canvas.
Her love of photography sparked an interest in film, and Asha ultimately earned a degree in filmmaking.
Finding the on-set demands of character analysis, maintaining film continuity, and collaboration with a creative team the most fascinating areas of film production, Asha incorporated her love of art, and the transformative nature of makeup artistry, with her love of film production.
In addition to film and television, Asha regularly works in beauty and fashion.
She finds the interpersonal interaction involved with makeup artistry – as well as the collaborative aspects and immediate satisfaction she receives from the work – a bigger draw than other mediums of creativity.
