I'm from Flanders, Belgium. I'm 50 and I paint for nearly 5 years now. I have started out by doing my boss a favour: they needed someone to entertain kids during the open days at the school where I teach French. This was such a positive experience, I decided to continue in my free moments. Teaching French is still my full time job, but face painting (and body painting too nowadays) is becoming more and more important in my life. I enjoy it very much and love to be creative in it. It also is a great boost of positive energy in my life, all these happy kids getting in my chair when I have a job!
But being a perfectionist , I am very happy to participate in your classes, because it's really going very deep into subjects that are usually overlooked, and that's what I wanted. I also wanted someone to push me further and willing to critiscise me where needed ! Ususaly people just say"ooh , how nice" , when I myself think it's all wrong.You dare to speak up when there are mistakes. Now I know why it's wrong and how to make it right ! Which doesn't mean I'm flawless now, but at least I know I can handle things ! That's about it I guess... plans for the future, I don't have: I like seeing where all of this will bring me, it's an adventure in itself :)
