Whilst living in New Zealand I worked for Yolanda Bartrum who is a three time world champion body artist. Naturally I feel incredible privileged to have had the chance to see her work and learn certain techniques and designs, but largely I enjoyed discovering the potential and possibilities of the industry.
Body painting has allowed me to create the fantasy I so needed while my Dad in Myton Hospice. I read books by his bedside. Constantly. All I wanted was to escape to the fantasy worlds that these authors had created and absorb the magic that entailed. It was a really crucial part of my life at the time and as part of my healing when he passed, so as result, it's now my aim to be able to bring people just a fraction of the enchantment people like Tolkien, C.S Lewis, Lewis Carroll and J.K Rowling gave me.
As a result, I am working on putting together a performative visiting experience for those in hospice care featuring a cast of fantastical creatures in full face and body paint to promote joy and escapism for families in difficult circumstances.
If you would like to be painted for a personal photoshoot or for an event we can work together to create your perfect look and capture the result. Body paints are an excellent way to explore body positivity, confidence and an entirely new experience.
