“The only face painter you should ever compare yourself to is the one you were yesterday.”
Hi, I’m Olga Murasev! Face painting is my passion and an important part of my life.
You may already know me from YouTube or Facebook — Olga’s Face and Body Art. Or perhaps you have taken one of my workshops?
Now let me tell you a little more about myself and my experience with this wonderful artform.
I started face painting as a hobby in 2011 and it soon developed into a full-time career. I’ve always played around with art so creativity is quite natural to me and I was lucky to develop skills for face painting quite quickly.
Most of my artwork is inspired by nature as well as popular culture and cartoons. I have a background in medicine, which no doubt helps with the more graphic artworks you may have seen me create around Halloween time.
As you might expect with such diverse influences, my portfolio demonstrates a wide variety designs, from super cute characters through to some very gruesome ones.
Over the past six years I have created hundreds of original face painting designs, and I have traveled the world to share my art as an instructor. It has been my pleasure to meet and teach so many students in person. From Australia to the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Russia, Belgium, Ukraine, Israel, Kazakhstan and more… it is amazing where the humble art of face painting can take you.
In 2013 I visited Australia for the first time as an international instructor, and in 2014, I was a guest instructor at FABAIC in the USA. In 2015, I instructed at the UK Face Painting Convention.
And now I have combined my experience and knowledge in one easy to navigate online training program — the International Face Painting School.
