My love for art emerged while watching my sister sit down and draw portraits in her free time. I remember watching her while thinking about how badly I wanted to be able to do that. Then one day I picked up a pencil and a sketchbook, and I haven't looked back since. Currently, I am enrolled at UTC, getting a BFA in studio art. My entire adult life has been dedicated to my passion for art. Recently a new found love for body and face painting has emerged. The idea of using the people around me as a blank canvas is exciting, and coming to work to face paint only solidifies my love of the art form. Seeing the happiness and joy that a painting brings to a child is definitely the most rewarded I've ever felt from painting. I hope to continue exploring the endless possibilities that face painting offers.
