How did you get into the world of Face and Bodyart?

I got into face and body art completely by accident. I signed up for a face painting course while in college and when I showed up to chat with the company I discovered it was actually a job interview! I somehow managed to get hired and had to learn on the job. Later a coworker of mine introduced me to body painting and I've been hooked ever since. 7 years on I'm still pushing myself to improve all the time, and have recently started experimenting with paintlooning, which is a mixture of body painting and balloon art.
