After winning the Irish Body Painting Competition in 2013, Orlagh Gilsenan decided she wanted to make this her full-time job. She has trained in Austria, the UK and Ireland, and with a lot of practice was ready to launch her body painting career! She has been working as a body painter since 2014 and has built up a great repertoire within the industry. She became the rep for Cameleon paints in Ireland. When she started teaching her courses freelance in colleges around Ireland and Northern Ireland she realised there was a gap in the market for professional body paint courses. This is when herself and Caitríona joined companies to become Dublin Body Paint.
Caitríona made a decision to become a body painter after she was made redundant during the crash. She founded the Dublin Body Paint Jam and created a community for like-minded people to paint, model and photograph. Caitriona has been working as a full-time body painter since 2014 and has been commissioned to work for big names such as Disney & Lir. She became the rep for Bams stencils in Ireland in 2016. Caitríona and Orlagh joined up in 2017 to create a one stop shop for working, teaching and selling everything related to body painting.
