Kendra Johnson has been a professional makeup artist for nearly ten years, with a focus in Theatrical and Prosthetic Makeup. She first discovered the craft while earning a BA in Theatre, Film and Dance at Humboldt State University, initially with an emphasis in acting. As a requirement course she (reluctantly) took Basic Stage Makeup only to discover a "true calling." Kendra developed and completed an emphasis in Makeup Design with a focus in Prosthetic Makeup. She then studied Makeup for Film and Television at Vancouver Film School, graduating with honors.
After dabbling in film, Kendra decided to return to her beloved theatre roots, where most of her work can be seen, including San Francisco Shakespeare Company's, Shakespeare on Tour's, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Boxcar Theatre’s production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Civic Arts Stage Company’s, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Diablo Theatre Company's, The Wizard of Oz. Other credits include The Dodo’s, Black Night music video, Seussical the Musical, and Into the Woods. Kendra's work can be seen this fall in Diablo Theatre Company's production of Shrek the Musical!
