I am honored to be invited to teach at FPBA Convention this year. I’ve been face painting since 2011 and over the years have developed my own style. I have a very unique and distinctive style that is bold, colorful and fun for all ages. I bring a lot of sassiness to my designs and my characters. I add my street art background with my illustration techniques and stencils to complete each design. You will learn how to give your designs and/or characters more spice and funkiness with placement, expressions, and how to add your own unique flare. People of all ages love my designs and they will love your designs too even more.
