Sometimes personal collaborations create something beautiful. A few weeks ago I painted my pregnant friend, Morgan, who is due any day now. We discussed painting her growing bump and a plan developed. We wanted to paint something that represented a mother's love.
"Being pregnant with our first child has been nothing but a sheer blessing. My husband and I waited 5 years of being married, while being stationed in Germany for 4 of those years with exploring the world together. We were ready for the next step in our lives."
Fans of Skin Wars, the show is now available and currently trending on Netflix in the USA. Don't forget to look out for me as a guest judge, where I get to stand next to one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, Rebecca Romijin and to hang out with the amazing Ru Paul.
Check out the trailer for the season premiere of Skin Wars Fresh Paint on GSN. The season will begin mid June. Look out for me in the trailer.
We created a film of my Award Winning Installation at the World Bodypainting Festival. Thank you to Josh Lim and The team at WBF for making this, it captures the experience beautifully.

Those of us without a vote, but who are British Nationals have watched the discussions and campaigns for the Yes or No votes. We cannot tell the Scots how to vote, but we can tell them how we feel about them. We decided to shed the British reserve and do something special. A group of British ladies from all over the UK got together with Bodypainter Emma Cammack and create a modified version of the Union Jack with the Scottish Saltire as the heart at the centre. A picture is worth a thousand words and this one is a message of love to the Scottish from their fellow Brits.
I appear in episode 2 when the challenge is to blend models into the shelves of a supermarket. It was quite a challenge to paint sight unseen like that and I was impressed at what the contestants managed under pressure. Choosing the best between such talented artist's work was not an easy task. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as we enjoyed making it.
I look forward to watching what they challenge them with next...
