I have page with Spectrum Arts Studio at
I am a very experienced body painting artist, I am not new to this exploding art form. I work in classic and airbrush. My credits include competitions, producing and extensive corporate work. I am the owner and lead artist of a northern California entertainment art company.
I took 19th in Face Art at the World Body Painting Festival 2009 in Austria.And have been able to work alongside Mark Reid placing in the top 5 at WBPF.
I was Co-Producer of the US Body Painting Festival the first of its kind in the USA.
I have taught at many major body painting conventions and competitions and have been invited as a guest artist to participate in several industry shows. I have won awards for my work and have several images and articles in print work.
I have worked for many major Liquor Companies including Amheuser-Busch, Capt Moragn, Jameson & Sons Limited, Rockstar, Monster Energy, Corona, Jose Cuerveo and Batch 19. I have painted for Maxium, and many top bands at concerts for Live Nation, Thunder Valley and Gold Country Casinos and in most the top Sacramento Area nightclubs and several in the bay area.
All the work shown here at MM is just off the cuff designs painted for fun. My Portfoilio is available upon request to those interested in hiring me.
Booking TF Body Paint Models for 2013 - February, March and April weekdays and weekday evenings. I will do weekends as my schedule permits but paid gigs override this. I will be working in studio in Yuba City and in Vacaville.
Booking now for models for full and partial body paintings, face art and extreme makeup shoots.
Experience is a major plus, but not needed, professional attitude is a must. Dancers are a plus, plus. I need models who can bring it. It's just not worth my time to paint a pretty face, my art needs an artist model.
Unless you hire me generally I entertain your concepts only after I work with you in an ongoing relationship. Modeling body paint, really creating body painting photographs is a marriage of arts and talents. You bring the modeling talent I bring the painting artwork.
If you are talented, beautiful and mature, if you understand how to create art with what you do as a model, I am a happy to discuss working together. I prefer ongoing collaborations as opposed to one time shoots.
I don't work with escorts on site. I will meet prior to paint/shoots.
I am not interested in working with models who want to be body painters.
I work with artists - models and photographers, MUA and stylists.
MODELS UNDER AGE 18::
I do not add/friend models or do full body paint with models under age 18. I actually prefer models over 21. However I get many request from young models - I do work with minors for face art, extreme face makeup art, FX work (like zombie shoots), cosplay and such that allows for extreme makeup or partial body paint that allows for costuming and clothing.
I give consideration to trade work based on the project. I find concept shoots require more of everyone involved, certainly more of my time and expense. So I prefer not to TF on those complicated concepts. However -
I am interested in shoots that are interesting and will produce amazing concepts.
I am not interested in working with photographers who want to be body painters. Professionals who are talents as artists and want to make amazing art are my preferred "partners in crime".
My favorite partner in crime is photographer Rich Tosti of Spectrum Arts Studio MM# 356071 aka RStephenT MM#2113. See his artworks and you'll understand the value of partners who are artists. I am forever grateful to him for his friendship and help in growing my art. Models please visit his profile as I work with Rick on most all shoots. He will also meet prior to body painting shoots.
My artworks, as a major focus in the final photograph is as valuable as your art.
For trade work request equal copyright with photographers. And require licensing rights. Ethical artists who are photographers understand this.
I will discuss all trade, but I am for hire.
My rates are reasonable and affordable. I use classic brush and airbrush to create artwork. I am not a MUA nor a stylist. I do extreme makeup and body painting, along with some FX makeup effects.
I am very experienced. References upon request.
I am on time, and come prepared, willing to stay as needed.
If you want body painting, please don't settle and don't DIY, hire a professional and experienced body painter. Find out how that makes all the difference. Out of the area I am happy to refer you to artists. Call me and we can discuss any project.
I teach body painting and sell body paints, beauty and FX makeup
at The Painted Navel - Extreme Makeup FX
I am available to mentor (which is different than working together).
I have 2013 classes coming up including beginning body painting, body painting jeans and corsets and body painting for photographers. Please make inquiry or see my store site.
