Jody Rife

Hello, my name is Jody Rife and I am a face painting artist and instructor from Gallipolis, Ohio. I am a fabatv instructor and have taught at FABAIC, EFABE , The UK Face and Body Art convention and several workshops. I also have a face painting step by step book called “Quirgles” Have a look at my Facebook pg Face Painting by Jody Rife to have a look at some of my work.

I started face painting like so many others, asked by a friend to help out at an event and I was hooked. I love painting so many different styles. Dramatic eye designs, monsters, you name it, I just love to paint. One of my favorite things that I have created and continue to paint are the Quirgles! The Quirgles are a group of silly, sweet, mythical monsters that live on Quirgle Island. They each have their own little story and personality. Together with Julie Oliver and Claire Pick, creators of Illusion Magazine, we created a book full of these little, fun to paint creatures. In my classes, I will show you step by step how to paint them and maybe even create your own! Some bounce, some fly,some run and some crawl, but one thing is for certain, you will love them all.
