About Patti Schulte
A Chicago native, Patti Schulte attended Columbia College of Chicago in Theatre Design, and Vancouver Film School’s Makeup, Design, Film, and Television program. While working backstage at the Lyric Opera of Chicago as a makeup artist for Madame Butterfly, the elaborate wigs were so exciting that she began studying the craft of wigs in a wig-making apprenticeship. Later she worked on hair in numerous feature film and TV productions.
Patti’s theatre projects include Vancouver Opera, the Moscow Classical Ballet’s Nutcracker, Broadway Disney’s The Lion King, and the national tour of The Wizard of Oz. Patti has worked on films such as Stargate: Atlantis, the L Word, Harper’s Island, Psych, Eureka, Fringe, and The Rise of the Apes.
