“I’m a self-taught artist based out of San Antonio Texas. I first was exposed to body painting by a fellow artist and was asked to paint with him in a body painting competition. I had no idea what I was doing and did a horrible job but I saw some really great artists do some things I had never thought about before and was hooked.
Shortly after that I connected with the man who ran the competition, and with a few other like-minded individuals, I was able to help San Antonio’s first Bodypainting organization, Beyond The Canvas. BTC is still a yearly competition in San Antonio that host over 30 artists, but we do a lot more than just that. I’m able to help new artists learn the craft and have had the opportunity to meet some amazing artists. Five years ago I never would have thought that I would love face and body painting as much as I do today.
