The Face & Body Art began as a way to embrace the imaginations of her children and others that she was a Care Provider for. This has been an activity that Melanie has used to elaborate onto extended play with children. They always ask Melanie to paint them, face or body.
This has been enabling and a wonderful trigger to behold, as it has allowed Melanie to step into the wonderful Body Art Industry.
She won an award for Costume Body Painting in 2012 at the Australian Body Art Awards in Melbourne, and took out 2nd place at the Australian Body Art Carnival in Eumundi. What an experience to have.
Melanie’s work involves many private parties, and corporate engagements e.g. Brisbane Broncos, sports & promotional events, NAB, RAAF, Mirvac, Zupps, community events & IGA.
