Face and Body Art combines my two favourite things...people and creativity. As an artist my whole life its been a blast transforming people into fantastical creations! The best part of my job is when a client looks in the mirror after I've painted them. The worst part is ending a line at an event.

I'm not the average facepainter you see in a park. If you want amazing designs that any age will enjoy, give me a call. Facepainting is always a huge draw at any event.

Instructor, Wedding Essentials Workshops

University of the Fraser Valley

September 2008 - May 2011

I created the Wedding Essentials Workshop to empower couples to plan their own weddings affordably and with style. I spent 2 years and 20+ years of event experience creating the curriculum and a workbook to go along with it. It was originally offered through private workshops given at local wedding vendor locations. I was later approached by UFV to teach a Wedding Planner course, so I expanded this introductory course from a 2 evening event to an additional 6 weeks of instruction for those wanting to know how to plan weddings for a business.

July 2006 - July 2006

Website of useful local resources for weddings and events on the Southcoast of BC. It isn't diluted with searches beyond the greater Vancouver & Fraser Valley area. I've spent years building relationships with local resources and search continually for what's helpful for local brides and vendors. I've kept it ad free for the 1st 6 years to prove it's usefulness and generate a stong following. You will find an excellent way to search local wedding venues and wedding shows here. The Wedding Show listing is the most complete and up to date listing for the lower mainland. If you want to know what wedding shows are coming up as a guest or exhibitor this is where you need to look. Even if you're considering producing a show you should look here first to make sure there are no competing shows at that time.

Basic listing here is free for local wedding & event based vendors. Additional spotlight and priority options also available. Let me know if you have a unique wedding or event related resource.

Looking for useful list of lower mainland venues?

The first thing you need when planning an event is a place to have it. My many years of research is now available to anyone on my renewed website http://www.wedresources.ca/index.php/venues. There are many ways to find a venue here. Zoom into the map to see whats in the area you are looking for or search categories by geography, or type. The research is done for you as the contact info and capacities are clear and easy to see. Enjoy!

If there's a venue you know of that should be here, let me know.
