After years of being a make up artist for weddings and special occasions, in 2007 I decided I wanted to learn how to face paint after seeing a woman paint some childrens faces at a friend of a friends BBQ.
I was amazed at the quality of her art, it was so crisp and clean and was the best facepainting I had seen at that stage. I wanted to be able to do this quality of face painting as I never knew face painting could reach such a high standard!
A few months later the make-up academy which I had studied makeup through, advertised a face painting course! I signed up immediately and was fortunate to be taught and inspired by the lovely and very talented woman, Belinda Valentine of Fabulous Face Painting.
After a few years doing face painting for fun, I decided to start my own little business offering face and belly painting and glitter tattoos, aswel as continuing my professional make up services.
My face painting has now lead me many places and caused me to meet many people all by the word of mouth!
I have been extremely blessed and fortunate to work for some amazing artists and now I am proud to say that I have some of the best face painting artists working for me occasionally at different events around Sydney!
I have gone on to complete more face painting training to “Amplify” my standard of face painting and to keep updated with the latest products and techniques. Most recently I have trained with American Face and body painter Nick Wolfe in 2018 on his tour to Australia.
My name is Richelle and I am based in the Revesby area, Sydney. I travel all over Sydney’s surrounding suburbs to different special events servicing clients for face painting and make up artistry. You can sometimes find me out in Rural areas near Mudgee and Bathurst at community events, parties and country shows.
I visit various childrens parties and corporate events providing fun Amplified Face and Body Art to all. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see all the Amplified fun we at Amplified Artistry get up to!
Please feel free to contact me via email or on my mobile and I look forward to helping make any party of yours Amplified!
