ABOUT

 

"Art is my true passion! I love my other work but drawing and painting allows me to explore my creative side. I enjoy doing both as it brings a varied (if not a little hectic!) lifestyle!!

 

Based in Colchester, Essex, Art About Face is a small family business run by Julie Husband who is also a registered nurse and works at Colchester Walk in Centre as a Nurse Practitioner

Julie is a self taught artist. "I have been drawing and painting all my life and started face and body painting painting about 10 years ago after helping a friend out with some theatrical make up for a pantomime. 

My artwork in the past was very much a hobby, but more recently it has developed into a very colourful career!! 

In addition to numerous events and parties, I have worked alongside Juliet Eve at Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire, provided face painting for actress Natalie Cassidy (Eastenders) at her baby shower which was filmed for an E4 documentary and featured in OK magazine and worked as a medical advisor on BBC's hospital drama series: Holby City, working closely with the Prosthetics team."
