Earlier this year I was asked to assist with a public event, face painting in
St Ives on Holt Island for 'Batty About Bats' day!
A day to highlight the conservation of our lovely little winged mammals!
When I was a child and teenager, I used to help my mother face painting at
school fetes - mainly because I am and always have been, an artist,
and she would send all the bespoke requests my way!
So, when I was asked to do the Batty About Bats face painting,
complete with my CRB check and insurance already set up -
I was very happy to take the opportunity, and it reminded me
of just how much I enjoy face painting.
Since then I have painted faces for events at
The Seven Wives Pub in St Ives - with fantastic feedback and results.
I never originally thought this would be a viable addition to my
Murals and Graphics Work, however, I love painting, I love children and
it is a very sociable part of my job that I didn't predict but absolutely love!
And people are happy to pay for my skills, for which I am grateful
and excited about and look forward to more parties and events!
