Krista Paris


From a very young age, Krista has been involved in theatre, as an actress, singer, and drama teacher. She was also an avid painter. Her love for the theatre, together with her creative and artistic flare, led her into the world of makeup and set design. As a result, Krista began to experiment with makeup in the same way that she used to experiment with paint on a canvas. In 2005, she began to teach face-painting to young students at St. Martin’s College Drama Troupe. She then slowly began to form part of, and eventually lead, various makeup teams for stage performances and pantomimes.
