Spotlight Artist Lisa Marshall
Tell us a little about yourself, where are you from?
Comox B.C., Canada

Part-Time Artist and a Full time Mom
What type of face and body art do you specialize in?
How did you get your start(in face and body art)?
I bought a Paradise Prisma Pro Palette and just started practicing everyday until I was confident to paint others. I have been a painter for many years, but decided to try a new medium and dove right into the Face & Body Art world.
What’s the most enjoyable part of what you do?
I love to explore new ideas and teach what I learn to fellow painters. I hope to inspire them, as they have for me. I also like to watch the faces of people around me as I create a design…and when I hand them the mirror!!! Whether its a scary or pretty design, I love to hear them say “WOW!”
Do you attend any conventions, like the FABAIC?
I have attended the 2012 Face and Body Art International Convention and hope to be back next year!
What would you like to do more of, art or otherwise?
I would love to learn how to create prosthetics, plus do more full body painting and professional make-up.
Outside of art, what do you do for fun?
I love the beach, bike riding and live music!
Do you have any pet peeves?
When I’m practicing and my cat comes along and tries to chew the end of my brush…haha.
Where do you see yourself in a couple years?
The sky is the limit, and I would love to travel and teach.
Do you have any projects going on or in the works?
I always have SOMETHING in the works… 😉 I do a lot of sketching, painting, and I am trying to develop some new product ideas.
What do you think of FABAtv?
The first time I tuned into FABATV, I couldn’t believe my eyes, there were so many classes and I didn’t know what to watch first!!! It only made me want to paint MORE! It’s fantastic that there are skilled painters offering to teach you their tricks, because when you are new to the industry, it’s nice to have a place to go and look up new ideas, techniques, and designs to help you expand your skill set!
