Karina Konupek

Artist - Healer - Mom

I have enjoyed creating art since I was a lil' girl, and I am grateful for a long lineage of artisans. With my art degree from CSUN, I have kept up with my interest of art in many different ways. After my 3 children, and my 2 nieces, I decided to use Face Painting and Body Artisrty as a way to combine all the things I enjoy and need in my life.

Now after thirty years, I am proud to say that I believe myself to be one of the most versatile artists around. I use my experience in the "industry" - from both sides- to my advantage; from my knowledge and comfort of working with people of ALL ages, to my life as a performer, to my life as a Personal Assistant to one of the TOP celebrities of our time. I understand and respect the requirements of all the "players" for an event to work well, enjoyably and professionally.
