⚡ Bowie Bride ⚡

Last weekend I had literally one of the best jobs ever! I got to paint this leg art on a Bowie bride in London, combining classic “Heroes” artwork with modern “Blackstar”glamour. So grateful for creative brides! Thank you Tash for having me paint this as part of your super special day ❤ ❤

|| THE MUSHROOM FAIRY ||

For 15 years I didn’t pick up a paintbrush. I was very lost, broken and frightened for a long time. Then one day, whilst living in Berlin, the idea of face painting came to me, seemingly out of nowhere. It felt like a huge risk but I bought some paints and very slowly bookings started coming in. I moved back to England and it kind of snowballed, despite intending to let it drop and move onto different things. People kept suggesting I progress to body painting but it just didn’t feel like the right fit for me.What I really wanted to do was create art that didn’t wash off, but fear told me I wasn’t capable. Self-doubt has always been, for me, more of a deafening white noise than a whisper, paralysing me into doing nothing. And so for years I literally did nothing.
Then a couple of years ago I started painting canvasses, but only really copying popular characters. I’d always copied stuff as a child so it felt like the beginning again, but with no vision of where it could go and no confidence about how I could develop. Whilst visiting a dear friend’s exhibition I experienced what felt like utter defeat, the voices in my head screaming “You will never do this”. I think she read my mind, or my tears, because at that moment she held my hand and said out loud, “You CAN do this Olivia”.
Of course I didn’t believe her, but a couple of months later I produced this. My first truly original painting. THE MUSHROOM FAIRY. who sits on my mantelpiece as a daily reminder that self-doubt is bulls**t. I literally love her and what she represents to me, and whilst I have no intention of ever parting with the original, today I had some prints done that ARE for sale. They are available to buy now, and in the future from my soon-to-be-launched Etsy shop. Today is a good day. There were tears, but today they were just of gratitude. ❤

Lovely Legs of Leicester!

Absolutely loved painting these one stroke roses all over the legs of Leicester last Tuesday evening at Streetlife nightclub. Had such an amazing night – 3.5 hours non-stop!

#BACKINGTHEBLUES

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Leicester City’s victory than to offer a free bump painting to a massive football fan! Loved painting this one, and including her little one in the photos was both wonderful and tricky in equal measure! 🙂

❤ Rainbow arm art ❤

Rainbows are quite possibly my favourite thing to paint! I love to improvise and create unique different designs on the spot. Here are two fairly recent creations.

The left was a girl at a Pride event.
The right was a little boy who wanted me to paint his dreams being eaten by nightmares!!
