Summer Design Contest Winner: 
Nataliia Stomarivska

This is just amazing news!!
Thank you sooo much!!! for the competitions you organize and for this opportunity for artists to try new materials from your site.

Q: What was your inspiration for your design?

My inspiration was a great desire to travel to the sea...walk on the warm sand, listen to the sound of sea waves and the cries of seagulls...and just the desire to lie in the sun under a colored umbrella. In today's quarantine situation, I can't go to sea, so the sea came to me!

Q: How long have you been face painting? Are you a professional or an amateur?

I have been engaged in face painting for eight years, and it is my profession and my biggest love and inspiration.

Q: What materials did you use to complete your design?

In this design I used many colors from different split cakes and from basic paints and also metallic paints of the Global brand.

Q: If other artists would like to enjoy seeing more of your work, do you have any social media links you would like to share?
