    Why I use an angled brush

    Posted by Juliette Hocking on

    Good evening! I've arrived home from the footy club and missed The Bachelor! Who was kicked off? Please tell me it was Leah. Girls like that surely don't still exist.. Maybe that whingey whining english girl that dislikes Leah could go home too.

    I feel it's time to reach out!

    Over the last two years I have focused much of my time on teaching. Particularly at the beginner level. The reasons or motivators that bring people to my lessons are diverse, which is great. I'm often reminded of how I made my start with face painting eight years ago, as many others tell me their story [...]
