The Skulltress: Insta-Artist who transforms faces & bodies into art work!

Using faces and naked bodies as her canvas, the Skulltress would blow you away with her work. She has a solid background in Theatre, acquired from her 11 years managing the Wigs & Makeup Department at English National Opera, in London, UK. Currently, she works as a full-time designer and art influencer.

Vanessa is legendary!

“She uses prosthetics, jewels, airbrushing, and more to make her looks realistic”, the Insider wrote.

Vanessa has worked on over 45 operas and 4 musicals, giving her a whole portfolio of experience. She started her Instagram years ago, but she recently started seeing the fruits of her input. For instance, she hit the 1M follower mark on April 21.

The Skulltress has also had the opportunity to work with top brands like Disney, Warner Music, 20 Century Fox, MAC, Makeup Forever, Selfridges, Urban Decay and Freixenet.

The Skulltress: Meet Insta-Artist who transforms faces & bodies into art work!

Although she loves to use her own face to stun, Vanessa Davis recently went viral for some work she did on model, Alexandra Ford.

For the Chelsea Flower Show, which went on in May, Vanessa transformed Alexandra’s NAKED body into a remarkable work of art. Painted in all blue, the Skulltress designed the model with patches made to look like ‘the icon Wedgwood design of distinctive magnolia blossom’. Alex then stood between the gardens and pillars, acting as a living sculpture. Lovely!
