About Me


NEED 3 MODELS FOR 2016 CALENDAR to be completed by August 22, 2015.


Now on to the rest of the profile.

Samples of some of my art!

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.

For six (6) years I was the Principal Artist in the production of the Military Body Painting Calendars.

My Main Body Painting Websites are:

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.
