Hello, my name is Lea Holman. I am so excited to take part in FPBA’s 2016 convention in November. I love painting in a 3D Realism style. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and learning from you as well as share some of my own painting knowledge. I got my start painting on canvas in 2004. I then went on to attend Milwaukee Institute of Art and design (MIAD) graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a focus on painting and sculpture. It was at MIAD that I really started developing as a Realism painter. I wasn’t until 2013 that I found face painting when my mother suggested I do something to entertain the kids at a local animal expo. When I started researching what medium of paint would be best to use safely use on skin I saw the work of so many talented artist and know this was definitely something I needed to pursue. Much of my inspiration comes from real life experiences. Inspiration in my art comes from my family, traveling, and life experiences. What I love most about face painting is working with the face and body so they complement each other. Class Description: In 3D Designs, Lea Holman will teach you how to bring your work to life.
