My Bio
NEWS: New Bodyart page is at: www.facebook.com/GugenheimGlob…

Science and Fantasy Based Multimedia Artist.

I work in the following media & genres, and am constantly expanding my repertoire:

Bodypainting, Makeup, Styling, SFX, Photography, Photo-editing, Modelling, Props & Accessories, Headdresses, Custom Couture, Murals, Canvas paintings and prints, Sculpture,Workshops, Masterclasses, Choreography, Tutorials, Designs & Concepts, Talks and Lectures (academic and informal).

I also blog on ethics, morality, logic, reason, science, rationality and the links between art and science.

IMPORTANT: I will happily answer questions regarding my work/products I use if you are POLITE. I DO NOT respond to rude public demands with no please or thank-yous. Please show some courtesy and respect as I would do to you. If in doubt you are welcome to privately message me.

Started makeup at 6, then at the tender age of 9 got my first set of face paints and progressed downwards. I'm here to show the world my body art. My digital art is only something I do for fun, and is showcased on here only to be completist.

New Bodyart Page!

New Bodyart Page!

Hello lovelies Firstly, I apologise for my absence here- lots going on! My page sadly over on facebook, was reported and banned as pornography- with no explanation given by fb. I'd like to invite all my friends over to my new page, over at: https://www.facebook.com/GugenheimGlobal So far, the facebook war on bodypainting has seen even multiple world champions being banned, despite pornographic magazines being able to sell their wares unharmed. I'd like to reconnect with all the friends I've lost, and also help fight the facebook war on bodypainting with my new page! Art is not porn!
