Kelly Paitaki

After finding a deep resonance with portraiture and texture from a young age, Kelly pursued her love affair with art and colour by embarking on a career as a professional make up artist at the age of 18. Wanting to enhance her skills and set herself apart in the industry, Kelly was trained as a hairstylist under the tutelage of a prominent hairstylist in Cape Town. Since then, she has garnered vast experience in editorial, fashion, beauty, advertising and television commercials as a highly sought after hair and make up artist in Cape Town. She frequently collaborates with high profile magazines such as ELLE, Marie Claire, Woolworths, Cosmopolitan, Edgars, Fairlady and many more, including a prominent editorial in L’Officiel. In her short career thus far, Kelly has already established a powerful and high caliber portfolio of work through the artistic mediums of photography and television. Her technical skills and painter’s eye for colour, texture and detail have firmly established her reputation in the industry. Kelly’s lively personality and unwavering professionalism is evident in her work and she is a popular choice for both local and international clients.
