Cat Tanchanco

Cat (she/her) is a Filipino-American storyteller and mental health advocate from the arts and movie-making industries. She is based in Los Angeles and holds a BFA in Film & Video from CalArts and has over a decade of experience in makeup artistry and working on film sets under her brand, AUDFACED. She also enjoys content creation, film analysis, short form writing, performing, and voice acting.

She feels most connected to her own and other’s work when it advocates for storytelling, mindfulness, radical empathy, social justice, or mental health. Her makeup art is known to be eye-catching, warm-exuding, and also dark in imagery.

At Art With Impact, her role encompasses ideating and creating social media content and email newsletters, hosting virtual Sanctuary Space events, managing the monthly OLIVE mental health short film competition, expanding the Continued Connections program, and creating spaces and content that support and elevate our global community of artists.

You can find Cat doing things like producing a runway art show that portrays the importance of not rushing through the five stages of grief, painting her face, creating her next art book, hosting an Instagram Live discussing where the horror movie genre meets mental health advocacy, or geeking out over Halloween season.

Her motto is “Under Every Mask is A Story”.
