About Me

NEW: Winner, best costume (and 3D UV Bodypaint)- Mr Pole Fitness 2015

Twitter: @quirkathon

Welcome to the Jungle. Care for a Pimms?

I'm Victoria. I've been working in this industry for over 10 years and I thrive on it!
I work worldwide with specialisation in Fine Art, 3D UV and Robotic bodypaints. I work on corporate promotions, events, commissions, workshops, private photoshoots and tutorials, fine art prints, instruction, movies and more. I'm looking for models 18+ both male and female, other fabulous body artists and prodigious photographers to work with and anyone who likes fusing science and art. Together we can create art that conquers the world.

My credits include joint 3rd in the world for UV Body Painting, taking home the bronze in The World Bodypainting Competition, Fluoro Night Contest 2012 as part of an awesome team with Wolf's Bodymagic. I'm both a member and instructor of The World Body Painting Association, currently the World's first Health and Safety instructor there. I also worked on Guardians of the Galaxy, PRIDE and Maleficent, and have recently worked with Filippo Ioco's PINK Austria and PINK London.
I have also been the first angle grinder to grace the stage at The World Bodypainting Festival Fashion Show, which you can see on my youtube.

I pay a very high attention to detail in my work and I like to think it shows. My artwork, like me is constantly evolving and I strive to better myself with each painting.

I undertake paid work only, and I am also looking for models for upcoming projects. Currently I am looking for people who straddle gender boundaries for a brand new project that encompasses the beauty of the gender spectrum with both awe and compassion.

I'm also looking to make lifelong art connections with people I can work with again and again, creating mind blowing works that are good enough to create a borderline religious experience with their awesomeness.

If it's the right project with highly creative people I may be persuaded to do expenses paid, but this is **extremely** rare. I don't do shoots "for exposure". After all, people can die of exposure!

I am also a highly skilled MUA, and enjoy fusing the disciplines of makeup and bodypainting in my work to create something greater than the disciplines on their own. I have a background in multiple genres from music videos to high fashion shoots and have worked with award winning singer Leigh De Vries.

Credits include Marvel, Alice Cooper, Nokia, The Black Eyed Peas Album Launch Party, Lawrence Krauss, The Red Paintings and private clubs including Kensington roof gardens and Cirque Du Soir.

I'm seeking creative, likeminded and intelligent people to come up with extreme, beautiful, wonderful collaborations and creations. The more outlandish, the more flamboyant, the better! Everything high fashion to darkly decadent and back, I can and will do. I've also worked for fashion and art magazines and love the challenge.

Aside from bodypainting, I'm also a member of The World Photography Organization, and am keen to work with other talented photographers to see what we can come up with. I also make props, prosthetics, concepts, and now body armour and have started venturing further into overall styling.
