Joanne and Katie Norris
After spending the last few years building her face painting skills, Jo is thrilled to be taking part in The Prosthetics event 2017! She is especially excited as for the first time she will be painting with her 16 year old daughter Katie. Katie has grown up surrounded by the face and body art world and after some initial training from her Mum, she has progressed from being a practice model to painting at her own events. She has just started her level 3 media makeup course at college and wants to pursue a career in the body art world.
“I have body painted at a few events including Paintopia and Paradise and I have worked along artists including Mona Turnbull, Alison Bessant, Juliet Eve and Heather Sharp. My first body painting festival was Paintopia were I assisted Alison Bessant and also took part in the face painting competitions.
The following year I completed my first solo body paint which was an amazing experience and I have been enjoying it ever since.
I regularly work for corporate clients such as Metro Bank, Silverstone, Go Outdoors, Argos, and John Lewis and use my extensive network to supply quality, experienced staff for their events. This year I was extremely proud to be featured in the Tesco Halloween campaign.”
