    Laurie Faulkner

 


Laurie Faulkner

From fine arts to body art, Laurie can't remember a time when she hasn't loved exploring colour. The beautiful art of Mehndi (Henna) was her first study of skin art, from here she expanded to mimicking tattoos thru to theatrical face paints. Now Laurie works with and teaches her craft, it's a passion and a lifestyle. She finds it hard to believe that it's been well over a decade since she put brushes to work on people, not just canvass. Laurie loves that moment when children and adults alike, look in the mirror and reveal that jaw dropping expression as they see themselves transformed.
