About this Instructor

I am Prima Barton, I’m originally from the Philippines, now residing in Queensland, Australia. I have a B.S in Architecture degree which helped me explore further beyond structures and landscapes on screen and paper. My face painting journey started when I was looking for a job at the age of 16 so I can send myself to University and also help provide for my family. I also did stage and venue set up for events, backdrop decore for mall seasonal events, simple balloon art, teaching basic face painting at schools, permanent tattooing, garment Airbrush art, Henna Tattoo, Headpiece making for performers. I am mostly self-taught. Although I started Face Painting in 2000, I took it seriously from 2013 when my children became ready for me to practice on them. Since then, I haven’t stopped exploring my art and vowed to learn and upgrade my skill every chance I can get. I consider myself an advocate of developing your “own inner artist” in this medium and creating “useful on-the-job” designs to bring more money into the business and build confidence in your own artistic self. The energy you show is the energy you attract and so let’s wear a huge smile, put your shakes away and be creative!
