I have always been an artist, working in a broad variety of media from pen and ink to fiber arts like costumes and felt…to the embellishment of many surfaces from household items to cake. Body art has always held a unique fascination for me though…..as a way we can express our many sides. When my life did not turn out as anticipated, I turned my attention back to art as a vocation as well as a road to creating my own business. In the past seven years, Sparkle has grown from a hobby to a local service provider for beauty and entertainment. There is a spiritual aspect to this work…body art creates an opportunity to connect and to express our creativity. I’m grateful every day for the opportunity to draw on people…and to help foster the growth of other body artists.
