AUSTRALIAN BODY ART AWARDS CONVENTION
Owner Daniela was in Melbourne at the beginning of the month, attending the Australian Body Art Awards convention where she brushed up (literally!) on her face and body painting skills! Every year Daniela attends local and international face painting workshops to learn the latest techniques and meet with the creative and talented artists who make up this industry. The international artists who attended the convention and conducted workshops were Sean Avram of Hyper Focus Art, Wolf Reicherter of Wolf’s Bodymagic, and Roxanne Rosa of Roxa Rosa.

Just a snippet of photos from the ABAA convention. This year the convention was filled with just as much talent and fun as ever! Daniela will definitely be back for more in 2017. Daniela will now make plans to share what she has learnt with the face painting team at Functions of Fun!
