NEW:  3 new workshops around Australia before the years out…

I LOOOOOVVVEEE the 1930’s Looks as much as I LOVE the 1940’s but most of my workshops to date I have grouped the 40’s and 50’s together as that has been the majority of interest.  This time though I really wanted to group together the 30’s and the 40’s  and have put together some of my “Go To” favourite looks using techniques that are achievable at home..  There will be two ICONIC looks that I want to teach you.  You can either pick a workshop or do both and double the looks you learn.

Morning WS:   Workshop the 1930’s Look with me. I will show you a simple yet striking look 1930’s smoky eye makeup look as in picture above as some easy go to hair styles to suit that era and more importantly to suits some fabulous hats..  (Bring False Eyelashes and any hats/accessories to suit this era that you have and let’s play!)

Afternoon WS:  Workshop the 1940’s Look with me. I will show you a simple yet striking look 1940’s Glamour makeup look as in picture above as some easy go to hair styles to suit that era including victory rolls, Barrel rolls and more importantly to suit some fabulous hats..


NEW:  An Awesome new initiative started up by a dear Gal Pal I wanted to share with you ..

SKETCH MARKS –   Sketch Marks is a life drawing institution with a body positive message. By that, we mean we are celebrating the beauty in the diversity of the human form through the age-old traditions of art.
Have a look at the ABC story done on them HERE

Sketch Marks is Bobby and Jesse, two women who met serendipitously in a life drawing class, and after a passionate discussion about how life modelling has completely changed our perception of ourselves, we knew we had to find a way to share it. We appreciate the transformation we experienced is not unique to us, and has the potential to change the lives of so many people who are battling body image and self esteem challenges.
Whilst we believe ultimately change comes from within, we also acknowledge the human desire for external validation. So we have created Sketch Marks life drawing as a platform to explore the transformational power that exists in the exchange that takes place in the artists studio. There are many other positive side effects to being a life model, admiring the art that was inspired by ones own loyal body, is just the beginning.
For centuries, life drawing has been a celebration of the diversity of human beauty, appreciated in its most intimate detail. Today, Sketch Marks celebrates the power of life drawing as a tool for self discovery, self acceptance and ultimately, self love.
We are eager to start this journey with the support of the local community. Whether you’re an artist, a prospective model, or someone who just wants to be part of this movement, we want you with us. Sketch Marks is for every body.
