Looking back to my High School Art Work, I would never of realized that this was the groundwork for today’s face painting designs I create everyday. I loved Art Class since Kindergarten! There i said it, I was your art enthusiast from day one. I have coveted a few pieces of art I created over 30 years ago in school. To be honest, I even took Woodshop in HS and built my own cedar chest. Yes, and I still own it. This chest holds my past inside; my first jewelry box, Old sketchbooks, my babies bibs I needle pointed, and a few paintings I never finished.
Looking at this watercolor, I see all of mistakes and beauty on this piece of paper. Today, I paint faces, fast and furious. When I am painting a little ones face, I need to create a piece of art in an Amazingly short amount of time. There is no coming back, pondering what I should do, I need to think on me feet and create a design for the person sitting in my chair. here are a few examples of onestroke roses I incorporate into my designs. Some are quick and simple and other are quite elaborate, but ultimately, these roses began 30+ years ago.
I honestly did not realize my artistic path would lead me to here. Owning my own business, creating beautiful art and making unexpected new friends. Life is more than a journey, show your Creative side; it can be as simple as singing to your children, taking up music lessons or picking up that paint brush.
