I am a BODY PAINTER in the Chicago area who has been painting since long before body painting became popular - Let’s call is about 20 years.  My work has been featured in magazines, on billboards, in advertisement, Calendars, Post cards and in videos.  I have done make up for stage productions of CATS and assisted in make-up design for a production of Cirque.

PHOTOGRAPHY is another skill I have developed over the last 20 years.  After working with some excellent photographers, I was bound to learn.  Actually, I HAD to learn.  There are a lot of guys who have cameras and CLAIM to be photographers, and I have had a lot of them shoot my work.  They did not do my art justice, so I became a photographer.  I learned from other photographers, I took classes and take some darn good pictures.

And… I also do PHOTOSHOP.  I learned this for some of the print work I had to do and have expanded to included photoshop work on other peoples images as part of my offering.

Body Painting!!!

The popularity of body painting has grown exponentially over the last several years.  Today, at events throughout the world, body painting is recognized as a medium for advertising, self-expression, and our art.

For 20 years, I have been a professional body artist.  My clients include companies like Playboy, Miller Brewing, Stolichnya, Bacardi and many more. 

In addition to body painting, I practice all the temporary body arts including face painting, henna, airbrush and bindhi.


I am especially interested in expanding my styles and will consider TF* provided I can choose the work to be created.

If you are a model looking for some body painting to enhance your portfolio, I will consider a TF* subject to the end product desired.

If you are looking to hire an experienced Body Artist, contact me!
