The first time I held a crayon as a child, I knew I wanted to be an artist. Painting with acrylics and oils for years, among all the mediums I've experimented with, has prepared me for a live canvas. Having the privilege of transforming humans into temporary, mobile works of art not only brings smiles to the faces of the painted recipients, but it creates an atmosphere of make-believe and fantasy, separating us from the busy world in which we get so entangled. Whether I am painting the face of a child at a birthday party, applying makeup to the face or body of an adult at a photo shoot, film set or special event, I am present to the excitement and anticipation in the air while awaiting the final transformation. This truly brings me joy and inspired me to create Let's Gogh Paint!
