Face and Body Painting Contest West Coast Face Painters1st Place

Regina Newsum

I started face painting in 1984, when my oldest daughter started school. I would do volunteer painting for all the school parties. Just little doodle art on the cheek, but the children loved it. I researched face paints and products and went professional in July of 2009!
WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE THAT?
I worked in a factory for 30 years, retired in 2007. During that time I also had a woodcraft business for over 30 years. I designed my own patterns, cut my own wood, sanded and painted
all my products. I also taught myself how to airbrush, and incorporated that into my woodcraft business. I did on the average of thirty shows per year, traveling all over the state of Michigan.
WHAT DO YOU NOW BESIDES FACE AND/OR BODY PAINTING?
I am retired so I have gone full steam ahead into my new business of face and body painting, also I am planning on teaching classes very soon!
WHAT PAINT BRANDS ARE YOUR FAVORITES? WHY?
I use Diamond FX, Snazaroo, Paradise, and Wolfe. But my first love is Diamond FX paint! Diamond FX is so bold and bright, and the coverage is amazing.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO PAINT?
I absolutely love to paint roses! Lots and lots of roses! And I would have to say that the "tiger" is my second favorite! Then I would have to say the "butterfly" With all the glitter!
IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE ABOUT YOUR CAREER AS A FACE/BODY PAINTER THAT YOU WOULD LIKE OTHERS TO KNOW ABOUT?
The most rewarding thing about face painting to me is to paint a design on a small child, hand them my magic mirror, and watch their faces turn into a giant smile! It touches my heart! I feel truely blessed to chat with and share my work with so many great amazing artists from all over the world, I look forward to the day of our meetings. I love life!

Carrie Moore

(cont. from 2nd place story)

Silly Farms Wonder Pallete is always close at hand and she prefers to use shimmer powders rather than glitters unless she is doing glitter tattoos at an event.

Her artwork, prop and set design are reflected at Hawes Farms Pumpkin Patch and Haunted Barn in Anderson California, where she has been the farm artist since early 2008. Being the "Director of Fun" at Hawes Farms is Carrie's favorite gig. Whether it's Hog Hollerin or Pie Eating, organizing events and contests for young and old alike..... Carrie always enjoys getting down on the farm!

From wall murals to painted rocks to painted faces, you can see Carrie’s other artwork on Facebook by searching “Painting Cute” and she looks forward to attending "Living Canvas" in the fall.
