Master Cosmetic/Tattoo Artist.
I work full-time now in Film as a Scenic Artist/Painter with IATSE891 Union. I tattoo Part-time as part of giving service to people in need of my services. I don't have to do it anymore, yet I love helping people that is why I work 7 days a week instead of resting on the weekends. I am still in Vancouver instead of moving in the Kootenays- that will happen eventually...
I was born to a family of artists: My Dad was an Illustrator/Portrait Painter, Brothers are a photographer, the other an interior designer, two Uncles in USA were World Famous comic illustrators, animators for Marvel, DC comics and Disney; Since I was born, seeing my dad always drawing, sculpting, painting for work; I see things differently than other people: an innate natural talent and skill I acquired naturally. I remember already drawing at 2 years old!
I always had the best work in art school-consistently displayed... Graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts majoring in Advertising, I worked 25 years in Advertising agencies as an Art Director for several leading International Advertising Agencies like McCann-Erickson (Phils.), Publi-Graphics in Dubai, UAE. and as Graphic Designer in Canada, as well as a mural Painter in Japan under Kenju Sensei, even My Professor chose and trained me to be his assistant Art Restorer of hundred-year-old Museum oil paintings while I was in University. I won a few Awards for Oil Portrait Painting, Designing and Illustrating. I specialize in Oil Portrait paintings, Figurative art & realism.
USA trained: Certified Master & Trainer in Micropigmentation from The American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics, Texas, USA. I learned Cosmetic Micropigmentation first then became a self-taught Body Tattoo artist. Currently specializing in the most natural-looking Cosmetic tattoos and realistic body tattoos since 2009. I freelanced as a Certified Mobile Cosmetic tattoo artist for 3 years while I held a full-time job as a graphic designer at Best Buy Head Office until I was pushed to start my own business when I got laid off from my office job of 15 years in service. Now I couldn't be happier in this field of work as I change people's lives!
