Custom body painting is an amazing living, breathing art experience! It's incredibly eye-catching, and defines beauty in fresh terms. I create a unique piece of body art based on who you are, what you love; and when you move, it is even more uniquely your own. Working with fabulous portrait photographers like Devi Pride Photography, we capture these ephemeral moments for you to keep. NOTE: Nudity not required! Show as much or as little as works for you.
I like to start with a meeting to get to know you, what visual styles speak to you, what you're excited about. Maybe we'll do an informal photo session to get some reference material and see what gestures happen naturally. I'll take some time on my own to think and sketch. When we have a direction we like, we'll book photo studio time and plan an all day painting session, listening to music, chatting, snacking together.
When the pictures are done, you'll choose favorites from a gallery of proofs. The photographer and I will then put the finishing touches on (digitally fixing any paint smudges, etc) and your finished piece will be printed on paper or canvas to be a piece of art that hasn't washed down the drain, but can be hung on your wall.
I love how people light up when they see themselves as art!
