About Me

WHO
I'm a Philadelphia-based painter and photographer. I'm also the owner of Funtown Productions, a talent agency that represents specialty performers and promotes concerts throughout the northeast.

WHAT
I'm constantly recruiting new talent to help me with my mission to push the boundaries of live art and photography in the studio and at events.

WHERE
My studio is conveniently located a few blocks from the Piazza in Northern Liberties and less than ten minutes from Center City Philadelphia. The complex includes a common courtyard with gardens and multiple venues that are available for photoshoots and special events.

Address:
155 Cecil B Moore Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19122

WHEN
I've been actively studying fine art for 20 years and I've been working as a professional, self-taught, bodypainter for three years now.

WHY
Life without art is boring and nobody likes being bored. The challenges that come with painting on a three-dimensional human canvas require me to constantly reinvent myself and my approach towards art. Bodypainting is the most challenging and rewarding form of art that I've ever attempted and my passion continues to grow after each and every live painting experience.

Collaboration: I'm always seeking out new models, artists and photographers to work with on many different types of projects. I rarely volunteer my time but I am open to trades if they make sense for everyone involved. I have several series of bodypaintings that I'm currently working on where I recruit models but they are all volunteer-based. I do offer paid gigs if a client requests a model to be featured in a music video, magazine spread, live promo event, or a stage/interactive performance. Studio sessions typically range from 4-7 hours and include a professional photoshoot. I also take commissions for studio sessions and often travel outside of Philadelphia if travel costs and artist fees are covered.

HOW
I use sponge and brushes with only the highest quality professional make-up for all of my bodypaintings.
