‘Oh my Dear’

“My name is Jacklyn Suiskens, I’m 48 years old, live in Belgium but am Dutch originally. I started out  face-painting when I was 20 years old and painted here and there for about 15 years at Kids events during school holiday weeks. At 35 I decided to take a theater-make-up course and after that the advanced makeup course of Dick Smith. In 2003 my hobby became my profession. I started sending work in to Snazaroo’s world wide facepaint competition, and the fact that I ended up winning prizes and awards there blew my mind. “

‘The girl with the dragon tattoo’

“In 2007 I tried body painting for the first time ever in a competition and came 7th,  the same year I came 16th at the world Bodypaint festival with my second bodypaint ever. I’m completely self taught when it comes to bodypainting, bellypainting and facepainting, but the theory of theater and special FX helped tremendously. I am influenced by a lot of artists and just the world around me. Walking or taking a bath will inspire me the most . I’m filled with ideas, if I only had more time.”
