Artist Lenore Koppelman was born in Brazil, but grew up in New Orleans. Her life has always been wildly drenched in the colors and glitter of Mardi Gras and Carnival. After college, she moved to NYC where she grew bored with her hum drum Manhattan office job. In 2013, at the age of 38, she decided to completely reinvent herself and to leave it all behind in order to become a professional face and body painter. She frequently travels to various face and body painting conventions in order to learn and perfect her craft. This drastic reinvention has made her the most blissful she has ever been. Lenore currently resides with her husband Steve and their equally artistic five year old son Ralph in Astoria, Queens.
Lenore Koppelman is participating in NYC Bodypainting Day on July 18, 2015.
