You Become Art
Alana Dill / You Become Art
My first face-paint gig was for the 1995 Art Car Fashion Show in San Francisco. A lifelong artist, I'm primarily an illustrator and have worked in graphics, theatrical design and animation as well. Around 2003 I got a face paint kit for my neighborhood's yearly block party, and it became a passion that expanded to fine-art body painting & character design." Face painting starts around $5-$15. Come by and visit me at the fair! Book me for your next event at http://www.youbecomeart.com

Artist Bio
TheAuthur Wright
If anything drives me to do what I call art, to sell my paintings and other creative endeavors, to hope that they have meaning to those who eventually possess them it will be that quiet little belief lying there, waiting, deep, deep within, my own 'Deep Within', that we have come far, taken the blows, are still in the process of recovering from those blows, and we have survived.
