I am a professional Face Painter and Body Artist. I have recently returned from Europe (2009) where I competed in a number of Face & Body Art competitions including The World Body Painting Festival.
I am also a Remedial Massage Therapist/Teacher. I was recently an educator at the 2009 Sydney IMATS and gave a demo on "Painting Muscelo-skeletal Anatomy" (for the Body Painter).
I am committed to not only developing my own skills in Body Art but also promoting the great talent in Australia. (especially through Competitions). I am the founder and producer of The Australian Body Art Awards. The next ABAA will be held in conjunction with a Face & Body Art Convention to be held in Daylesford, Victoria from 18th to 24th of February 2011. www.australianbodyartawards.com.au
I have a unique workshop/short course "Painting Muscleo-skeletal Anatomy" There are two distinctly different workshops. One is aimed at Body Artists, eg. Brush & Sponge, Airbrushing, Special Effects and Make- up Artists. The other is aimed at Massages Therapists, Nurses and Fitness Instructors. The focus for the Body Artist is to identify the muscles that need to be enhanced in specific characters, like super heroes etc. Not only how to identify the correct location but to highlight and shade those areas to accentuate specific muscles.
I am after models who would like to be painted and are comfortable with their bodies. Private, or public sittings.
