Raquel Rosen is a multidisciplinary artist with a huge passion for SFX. Raquel was intrigued at an early age by fantasy-based SFX makeups and is following her passions to pursue a career in this exciting field, whether that be working behind the scenes in effects shops or actively working on set applying prosthetics.

Raquel studied four years at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) carving her own pathway around her SFX interests, where she focused and honed her skills in sculpture, ceramics, airbrushing and mold-making/casting. Raquel’s many studio works include sculptures, silicone castings, ceramics, photography and airbrushed paintings. Most of her works are influenced by: abstracted and intangible concepts of the quantum realm and trying to make sense of these phenomenons; cosmic anomalies that lead to manipulating the body to project larger-than-life ideologies that translate over on a more personal, tangible scale; and utilizing hybridity in her sculptures that question social norms and the toxicity it may bring forth in the years to follow. 


In between semesters at SAIC, Raquel attended Make-Up Designory in New York City which sparked her interests and set the foundations for her current knowledge of makeup, ranging from high fashion applications to creepy or whimsical SFX.

Raquel currently resides in Los Angeles where she freelances both SFX and beauty makeup for film, fashion and commercial photoshoots, along with working as a lab technician in special effects shops. 


In addition to her SFX work, Raquel worked diligently over the 2023 year to launch her new business, Pierrced. Pierrced ear displays are innovative, unique pieces of art that are creatively crafted to enhance functionality. When not working on custom orders, Raquel has been busy consulting with piercing and tattoo parlors to help enhance shop aesthetic and improve the way that jewelry is showcased.
