Mandi Ilene, artist
Mandi Ilene has been painting for since she was able to pick up a brush. Her education of private art lessons and extensive classes in school led her to explore the world as an artist early in life. Specializing in acrylic on canvas, she began taking commissions for murals in high school, then moving up to art furniture and signs in her early 20's. She found face and body painting while working in the beauty industry doing nailcare and makeup. After 4 years of dedicated work learning about face/body painting she was able to leave the salon and work full time at events and photo shoots.
In body art, she has perfected her craft by competing around the world, participating in prestigious art shows and starting her own body paint art show, BASE Orlando. She leads a group of artists locally and brings their body art to the stage in a runway show setting.
