The UK Bodypaint League was a place where artists, models and photographers could work together to help build up their body painting portfolios. Meetings were held once a month and each had a different theme to work to.

I attended my first UKBPL meeting in January 2014 where I completed my first ever full bodypaint, and it sparked an addiction in me! I can honestly say if it wasn't for the encouragement of the creators and the warm and welcoming atmosphere at meetings, I would never have plucked up the courage to have a go at full bodypainting as I had always been incredibly nervous about it.

It is also thanks to the UK Bodypaint League that I received my first full magazine feature in Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics magazine, as well as demoing at public events such as Kustom Kulture Blastoff 2014 and Neil Gorton's 'The Prosthetics Event'.
