PROFILE JORDAN LIBERTY

JordanPortraitWhere were you born?
I was born near Columbus, Ohio and grew up in Cleveland.

Where do you live now?
I’m in Philadelphia, but I spend much of my time in New York City.

What is your sign?
Taurus

What did you want to be when you grew up?
For a few months when I was in kindergarten, I wanted to be a lion tamer. Before that there was a brief period where I wanted to be a fireman. But for the most part I always wanted to be an artist, I just didn’t know what kind. My family moved around a lot, and art was my way of breaking the ice in a new school. I’m much more introverted than people assume, and art was (and still is) my way of connecting with others. I literally explored every possible facet of the arts growing up and I was lucky to have supportive parents.

How did that turn into a career as a makeup artist? >> For Jordan Liberty’s answer to this and his complete profile, get the Spring 2016 Issue here.
