Christine Bailey - Living the dreamAsk Christine Bailey what her dream is and she will openly tell you, "I am living it"."I hoped to work in paediatric medicine but somehow went into management and then worked for the police for ten years. Face painting can be very therapeutic for some children so I came full circle in my own way."Born and brought up in Cheshire, single mother of five children, Christine painted as a hobby for a year before becoming a full time pro painter five years ago"I was asked to face paint at Glastonbury Festival by a friend. The challenge of the weird and wonderful requests quickly had me hooked and so I took a training course." Already running a part time therapy business Christine decided to set up a face painting business to run alongside it. In a matter of months the demand for her face and body painting totally took over!Now a proud member of FACE (The International Face Painting Association www.facepaint.co.uk) whose members have to pass an accreditation test to ensure they meet standards of speed and skill. Christine abides by a code of practice and code of conduct and undertakes an annual 'MOT' test to ensure she is still providing the same high standard of service to clients with continued professional development encouraged and supported.Christine's work has been recognised as she was awarded third place at the International Face and Body Painting Festival. Now more of her spare time is spent mentoring newcomers to the industry and playing an active role helping to run the association.So who is Christine's face painting hero and inspiration? "Ooh that's a toughie" she said. "So many artists produce work which inspires me, but for their generosity, humility, and the support they have given me on my own journey it would have to be a tie between Body Painter John Davis and Face and Body Artist Catriona Finlayson Wilkins. The lady assisting me on the day of the Network She magazine front cover photo shoot was the very lovely Lily Martin. Lily and I met when I did my initial training. There was an instant connection and we have been close friends ever since. Lily is my other face painting hero.Lily, a learning mentor in a high school has been painting for sixteen years. Initially I set up MistyMoo Face Painting (www.mistymoo.co.uk) and Lily was trading as Reflections Face Art (www.reflectionsfaceart.co.uk). We still run our respective face painting businesses but recently set up Colours Alive! (coloursalive.co.uk) together to provide a quality body painting and gestational art (bump painting) service".
