Aryn painted as an Alex Grey inspired piece

I'm Aryn and I love art.  I have been doing and loving art since before I can remember, it has always been my passion and I have been lucky enough to have an adult life that is filled with my artistic adventures.  I have an amazing husband who is also a Makeup Artist (Bud Stross) and he helps to fill my life with art awesomeness.  You can see an example of our Youtube videos below!!


Currently I work at and own Body of Art Tattoo in Dayton, KY , B.A.M. FX doing FX Makeup, at The Dent Schoolhouse as the Costume Designer and a Makeup Artist where I do FX Makeup, and of course I am a Freelance Face and Bodypainter.  I was also a finalist on season 2 of SKIN WARS (which you can currently find on Netflix).


I was the 2013 RAW Makeup Artist of the Year for Cincinnati.  I won 1st place at the Jantana Bodypaint competition at the Arnold USA in 2019, and 2nd place in 2020. I won 3rd place at FABAIC's Bodypaint Competition in 2015.  I have also been featured in multiple magazines including Glamour, Dark Beauty, Auxiliary, and Gothesque.  


I'm not very good at Bios :) But those are some things I have done, and I plan on doing a lot more.
