"I want people who see my art to feel hopeful despite living in a chaotic world. To feel enticed and energized, their curiosity ignited. I want them to believe in their light within, to face their darkness, to see their beauty, to feel a part of the Universe."

Cat Tanchanco is a Filipino-American artist who delves into the stories under the masks we wear.


She feels grounded when exploring belonging, identity and healing. She enjoys creating through art, film and media and by designing community events and spaces for conversation.

Through podcast interviews, livestreams, artist Q&A's and event hosting, she has a skill for figuring out the best questions to ask in order to get people thinking and connecting.

While her artistic interests have expanded, many in the film, video and makeup industries know her as a AUDFACED, as she launched her makeup artist journey on YouTube back in 2009. Today, she has over a decade of experience working on set for independent films, show series, live haunt attractions and photoshoots. Her work has been featured on American Horror Stories, mtvU, Virgin Airlines, PopSugar and CryptTV.

Cat likes to create through whatever medium feels aligned. Some of her current favorites are painting, drawing, makeup artistry, filmmaking, writing movie essays,  art books, voice acting and performance art. While honing her craft is important, she finds that play and exploration are vital to keep a curious perspective.


She infuses empathy, grit and hope into her vibrant and sometimes visually-dark art pieces.
