Well,...she is just a simple and humble girl from Taiping, Perak who loves arts and Face Painting and is currently working in Penang, Malaysia. To let you know her better, here's our little interview with her:
Us : What triggered you to do Face Painting for the first time...?
Allyson : Well, I started Face Painting as a part time artist when I was still studying in University. My friend is involved in event management and he know that I am good in painting. He invited me to face paint for a MNC in Penang one fine afternoon, and...hooolah~~ that was when it all begins and there's no turning back! I fell in love with Face Painting that very moment!!! It was great & encouraging because even-though it is my first time doing Face Painting, I already have parents, young adults, teachers, even kids, asking for my number! And from there, my "part-time-job" expended and weekends are never the same anymore! I have many bookings throughout the months; thanks to all the parents (who hired me for their kids' birthday parties) and clients from MNCs, event management companies, etc.
Us : Why Face Painting..?
Us : Why Face Painting..?
Allyson : Well, it is simple..I want to translate my love for art from paper into human canvas! It feels so good & satisfying to see the great paintings done after every show.. What's even better is when the kids, parents, clients, guests, hosts; basically everyone who get their face painted says "Thank You" to you with a big wide smile on their face.. XD
I love seeing the smiles & happiness in them.. It makes me feel complete.. Face Painting gives me room to relax, makes me feel happy with all the unique colors, and gives me the "passport" to expand my creativity! (:
You know you did a great job when you heard "Wow" from the them...I just want to make people happy...that's one of the meaning in life! (:
