I PAINT BODIES
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:
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.
