Before I can create any piece of art I need to be inspired. As an artist, finding that inspiration can be one of the biggest challenges. Sometimes we can be overflowing with ideas, other times we can feel like we have nothing. 
We can have all the skills in the world, we can have all the right equipment, but without inspiration we will struggle to create something we are happy with.

Belly Painting Progression

Posted on June 1, 2016 at 6:15 PM

Another unique and exciting way to celebrate your pregnancy is by painting a series of belly painting documenting the progresion.

There are many fun ways to transform the belly, it could be a tiny little seed growing into a beautiful tree, a little egg hatching and growing into a lovely bird or an even more realistic approach of a baby growing inside. 

Painting the belly at different stages as it grows creates a stunning collection of images, and it beautifully shows the chan...

As the weather cools down and the days get shorter, finding ideas to keep kids busy at Birthday Parties often becomes a little more challenging (I know this well, having two children with Birthdays in the middle of winter!)

Here is an idea for something a little different.. a Neon party! They really are a lot of fun, and don’t require a huge amount of work.

When working at events or parties where there are lots of excited children all wanting their faces painted, speed is such an important thing! As a face painter it is important to find the balance of working fast whilst still maintaining quality.

Live Facebook Tutorials

Posted on April 26, 2016 at 6:20 PM

The last couple of weeks my children have been home on Holidays, in the search for things to do we came across live videos on Facebook. 

No of course having the kids home I really want to use the opportunity to do a bit of face painting (I always have something new I need to paint!), and what better way to do convince my children to let me paint them than doing it live on camera.
