Jinny and Face Painting
I love drawing and painting... Before moving to Australia, I did some courses on watercolor and acrylic painting in Thailand and painted as a hobby.
I had no idea what face painting was all about until one day in 2012 I decided to volunteer at my son's kinder festival to facepaint the children. That experience was the beginning of my professional face painting journey. I really enjoyed doing the face painting for the kids and I felt really good when I saw the kids smile when looking at themselves in the mirror with the face painting designs on their faces. I absolutely love doing face painting!
After that day, I researched about face painting in Australia and other countries, the right products to use, the right equipment and tools to buy. I attended workshops with nationally and internationally renowned face painting artists and began to volunteer at different places to gain more experience.
And here I am today. I was one of the contestants in Melbourne Body Art Expo (MBAX) 2013 and currently a Certified Professional Member of the Australian Body Art Awards (ABAA).
Using the name FACE PAINTING BY JINNY, I travel all around Melbourne and do FACE PAINTING, BALLOON TWISTING, KID ENTERTAINMENT,MAGIC AND PARTY GAMES at private parties, childcare centres, kinders, school' fetes, kid festivals, churches, supermarkets, hotels, restaurant and company events.
Thank you everyone for all the support and, of course, my two sons, Thomas and Matthews, for being my inspiration and my models.
