Luz Pennington

I was born in Colombia South America. I graduated from “Libre University” with a degree in Business Management. I moved to Tampa, Florida in 2001. I am a Visual Artist who loves Oil Media and Face Art. I paint murals at Restaurants, Pediatrician Offices and using various kinds of motives for home décor, like kid’s bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. I fell in love with face painting while I was at an art festival, selling my oil paintings. I asked my husband to go home and bring my face painting kit that I used to paint my daughter and her friends at their birthday parties. After I painted the first face, I immediately fell in love with the children’s smiles as they saw their painted face in the mirror. I love to create walking beautiful pieces of art and the joy that it gives to everyone. In 2010 I decided to become a Professional Face Artist. I participated at the Face and Body art International Convention (FABAIC ) in Orlando, Florida. Since then I have also attended the following workshops and conventions: The World Bodypainting Festival 2011, Poertschach, Austria. Jamvention, Arcen, Netherlands 2012 FABAIC, Fort Lauderdale, FL. 2013 Balloon Jam, Orlando, FL. 2014 FABAIC, Fort Lauderdale, FL. 2014 I only use the highest quality paints and products for Face and Body Art approved by FDA in the US and EUROPE. In 2011 I decided to start my business “Arty Faces”. The name reflects my passion for oil portraits and face painting.
