Born in Newport News, VA

Lives & works in Birmingham, AL


From an early age, Somica Spratley was mesmerized by the artistry seen throughout fashion and film. Particularly, how widely makeup was used as a medium. She studied prosthetics under Josh Counsel and later trained at the Aveda Institute and Ryder Makeup Labs. In 2017, she joined the IATSE Local 798 union.


Spratley is also an independent filmmaker and an active volunteer as a screener and guest educator with Birmingham's own, Sidewalk Film Festival. In 2016, she made her directorial debut there and then in 2021, she was the winning recipient of the Black Lens Filmmaker Grant (in partnership with Stacey Davis Law). 

As a woman of color, she aspires to be a socially responsible artist, giving voice to others in an industry that is still lacking in diversity and representation.
