1-When did you start make up and body painting?
2-What is your favourite thing about being a make up artist? My favourite part about being a make up artist is seeing the transformation happen and seeing the model and clients reactions. It’s so fun to be able to dream up a creation in my head, but to see to come to life is so exciting! It’s the best feeling to see how happy your art has made someone else.
3-Do you have a favourite brand of make up or tool that you use? I like using torn up sponges to create texture, and help with blending.
4-Can you give us a hint about your “Lady Luck” body painting entry for Art World Expo Body Painting Competition at the Muttart on March 16? The only hint I’m giving about my “Lady Luck” body paint is….. she’s going to sparkle!
5-Where would you like to see your arts business in five years? The last 5 years I’ve let my art sit more on the back burner. My job was the focus not my passion. I’ve recently started my own business and I’m super excited to give myself more time to create the art I love. So in 5 years from now, I just hope that I’ve better myself as an artist, that I’ve created a good name for my business and that I’m still doing what I love!
