How did you get into the world of Face and Bodyart?
My son was four years old his school was looking for mums to learn face painting for the school fair. We were given the opportunity to learn from a professional face painter, i was told i am a natural. 5yrs later face painting at a community event and people were saying "do this as a business you are really good" Then it hit me this is my calling. 18yrs in the making. 12yrs now professional face and body painter in business. Entertaining in QLD and Tasmania, now Victoria.
