Therese Burch was born and has lived in Southern California all her life. She has been an artist most of her life either as a licensed hairstylist of 35+ yrs. (and still going strong) or as atole, stencil and mural artist for more than 30 yrs. Painting and drawing have always been a part of her life. Even as a teen she took on-going art classes incorporating such mediums as charcoal, pencil, watercolors, oils, acrylics etc. So it has been a natural progression for her to enter into the exciting world of face/body painting.
As a Cosmetologist, she mentions, I am licensed to do make-up along with doing hair, but my make up application was always a little too dramatic for that special wedding or evening out. When I was introduced to the world of face painting I had found my niche. I could now do make-up (face painting) on those who WANTED the fun and dramatic designs I was unconsciously leaning towards. Thereses designs are for everyone. From the butterfly and dragon cheek art for the little ones, daring and delicate ankle and arm art for the teens and adults to dramatic full face and eye art for the fun-at-heart. Color runs in her blood whether its in her hair or on her face!
Therese has painted at all sorts of exciting places such as The KISS concert and for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines on their ships to various places, most recently on the Biggest ship in the world the "Oasis of the Seas." Also on the beach in Monterey Ca, and in the Bahamas! She has painted at the Staples Center for the NBA All-Star Jam!! Therese has had the honor and pleasure of attending the Face And Body Art International Convention in Orlando FL. as a teacher and student.
