Press Release: NZ Body Art Awards


Auckland professional face painter Jane Ellis has won the second annual New Zealand International Face Painting Competition, presented by Youthtown, with a piece inspired by the hit movie Kung Fu Panda. She picked up the award at the NZ ColourFest at the Lakehouse Arts Centre in Takapuna, Auckland, on Saturday. The festival still drew a large crowd of moving-art enthusiasts, despite the rain.

Jane Ellis painted her 10-year-old son Jack for the winning piece and is no stranger to turning children into the creatures of their imaginations . . . Jane runs Rainbow Rascals, a face painting and party business which has been delighting Auckland children for six years. Jack is used to his mum practising on him - he's her main model and Ellis says face painting has always been a nice mother-son activity. She says he is very supportive and has always been her number one fan.
