I have a background in science, having trained and worked as a veterinary surgeon for
many years in the UK. I have painted and drawn all my life (encouraged by my
grandmother who taught me to study how light and shade behave) and turned to face
painting after a chance encounter at an open day at work. I have never looked back and have finally found her true calling! I founded Fine Lines Face and Body Art in 2015, a high-quality, professional face and body painting service in Leipzig, Germany, where I now live with my young family. In 2018 I began offering face painting courses in Leipzig and since becoming a tutor at the International Face Painting School in 2020, have has enjoyed supporting students on the Elite course to help them reach their full potential as artists.
