What first brought you to Gibraltar? 25 years ago when I lived in Nashville, Tennessee, my friend Georgina Rucker used to draw caricatures in Gibraltar. Back then she raved about how wonderful and beautiful it was. When Hamish Dalmedo contacted me and asked me to be a part of the First Annual Gibraltar Face and Body Painting Festival, I jumped at the chance to check out Gibraltar myself. I was not disappointed; in fact I was not prepared for how stunning it truly is! What made you decide to come back to Gibraltar to give a workshop at this year’s festival?

We were shown such wonderful hospitality by organiser Hamish Dalmedo and his family, as well as the locals we met there.

Tell us about your specialty: Body Paint Lingerie I have body painted hundreds of lingerie designs over the past eight years. I really perfected body paint lingerie when I was hired to paint at the Playboy Mansion. I have since been asked back to the Playboy Mansion over a dozen times! I often painted 10 girls in lingerie for each of these events, so I have created many unique styles of lingerie to ensure they are always eye catching and exciting. Lingerie is one of the most requested body painting designs both commercially and by individuals. It can be used for a fashion show, sometimes for a romantic photo shoot gift for a lover, sometimes for an event promotion. If sexy body painting is the goal of the client, then body painted lingerie is the way to reach it! n Gibraltar’s Second Body Painting Festival will take place from 11th - 14th April at the Victoria Sports Hall. There will be contests, workshops and demos with award winning artists and photographers. For further information or to sign up as a model or for a workshop, contact gibraltarbodyart@hotmail.com or telephone 54015139.
