Claudia Lucia’s Highlights of 2013 – New for 2014

I can’t quite believe I’m coming into my 14th year of being freelance, where has the time gone? Revisiting my passion for body painting, must have been my biggest challenge; pushing my creative boundaries and loving it! Met some incredible artists in the body painting world. Another highlight, I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with inspiring photographer, writer & teacher Damien Lovegrove in his hollywood lighting workshops/dvd and art nude, working with some lovely models achieving an array of stunning shoots.

A music video shot in challenging weather conditions for the beautiful fado singer Claudia Aurora, was all worth it though. Busy with brides getting hitched all year round, given me the opportunity  to visiting idyllic locations on the way. Transforming 100?s of faces at photographic makeover studios styles such as classic smokey ,natural, vintage & high fashion – which I continue to enjoy, especially the confidence boost it can also help give clients.

Being freelance is great but not always easy. I’ve realised you have to keep believing & big up yourself – you are your own boss. Friends & family are great, but ultimately its just yourself. One book that has helped me along the way is ‘How to be You, Complete’ by Julie-Ann Blackmore. A invaluable read – http://howtobeyou.com
In 2014, Claudia Lucia will bring you certainly more body painting (Paintopia competition in May), plus hopefully an exhibition! Eek! Fashion. styling collaborations…watch this space. Looking forward to how each day enfolds with a new & exciting year ahead.
