Meredith Johns

Owner and Special Effects Makeup Artist, Hawgfly Productions, Inc.


Meredith Johns was born and raised in Austin, TX. She grew up in a family of artists ranging from ceramics and oil painting to woodworking and lampwork bead making. Sculpting, painting, and constantly pursuing outlets for her creativity was a part of life for Meredith, so it’s not surprising that she sought out an artistic career. She met business partner Carolyn O’Hara on set and abandoned her budding graphic design career to start Hawgfly Productions, Inc. Her favorite part of her job as a makeup artist is the constant challenge that new projects present and the exciting results of hard work and great ingenuity. Meredith was nominated for a 2010 Primetime Emmy Award for her makeup work on Temple Grandin. Some of Meredith’s other credits include The Leftovers – Seasons 2 and 3 (FX Makeup), The Son – Seasons 1 and 2 (FX Makeup), The Long Road Home (FX Makeup), Stoker (SFX Makeup Artist), Machete (SFX Makeup Department Head), Machete Kills (Key SFX Prosthetics Makeup), Teeth (Makeup), Day 5 – Seasons 1 and 2 (FX Makeup Supervisor).
