Events & Appearances

My first face-paint gig was for the 1995 Art Car Fashion Show in San Francisco. A lifelong artist, I'm primarily an illustrator and have worked in graphics, theatrical design and animation as well. Around 2003 I got a face paint kit for my neighborhood's yearly block party, and it became a passion - I was eagerly trotting my paints out for every birthday party and holiday event. In 2006, I began seriously studying and made a commitment to develop my speed, aesthetic skills, and my sanitation protocol. You can learn more about that at my Training and Classes tab.

I use only professional-grade cosmetic face paints which have been stringently tested for safety on skin.
