Recent Emmy® winners Eryn Krueger Mekash and Mike Mekash will be joining us from the USA to appear on the Main Stage, as well as get involved in some of the event’s other features.
Makeup designer Eryn has 30 years of television and film industry experience as a makeup artist and is diversified in beauty, makeup effects and design. Her credits cover a wide range of productions including ‘Wakefield’, ‘To the Bone’, ‘Anything’, ‘Scream Queens’ and ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’. She began her career in the special makeup effects field in Los Angeles.
In September 2017 Krueger Mekash won Emmy Awards for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup for a Series, Limited Series, Movie or Special for ‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’ and Outstanding Makeup for a Limited Series or Movie (Non-Prosthetic) for ‘Feud: Bette And Joan’, to add to her four other Emmy and five Artisan Awards. She has also earned an incredible 30 Emmy nominations for Outstanding Makeup, Prosthetic and Non-Prosthetic. She is currently the department head for FX’s anthology ‘American Horror Story’ and ‘Feud’. She says she can also still make a nice mould in a pinch!
Shown here are some recent personal snaps from Eryn along with some of the superb work created by her team on ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’, which we featured in issue #3 of Prosthetics Magazine.
