A brief history about Claire's (proprietor) experience:
I am one of those creative people who, apart from having made a living being a performer, singer/guitarist and percussionist, luv to design and create original artworks within various art and craft mediums or forms.
I have also worked as a freelance sign writer and artist over the years; been involved in various Folk and Music Festivals in QLD., N.S.W., and W.A. (performing and volunteering/assisting within the Children's Activities Marquees/areas); as well as facilitating and assisting in community art and music projects on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and townships of Western Australia, including Perth City and it's Metro area (where I've been living for the past 19 years, though my partner Baz - also an entertainer, and I would like to resume our working holiday around Aus sometime soon). I have also facilitated and been a Musical Director for the Sambanistas - a Community Arts & Percussion Group based here in Perth.
I currently (and have for the past 14 years), facilitate a Music, Movement & Arts Program for disabled participants for Melville Cares as part of their Recreational & Respite activities program.
I have also been a face (and body) painter throughout the years, and, 10 years ago, acquired Henna Magic - a reputable henna art (temporary tattoos) and henna kits business based here in Perth.
Since 2009, I started my own arts/entertainment business - Claire's Creative Arts, and have since added a Temporary Tattoos service, Arts & Crafts Workshops, and Drumming/Percussion Workshops.
Services we offer:
One of our specialties is our henna tattooing service (Henna Magic). We use only natural henna, free from any preservatives or chemicals, and applying these temporary, brown coloured henna tattoos (that last up to 10 - 12 days) is painless, and relaxing. We offer an assortment of designs including traditional Mehndi and Arabic Designs, tribal and original designs we can create specially for you. We also sell henna D.I.Y. kits; and vouchers for henna tattoos and body art as a unique gift for someone special.
Our temporary ink tattoos (FDA compliant and come in a choice of colours) last 5 - 7 days and look like real tatoos and can be applied, sponged on or brushed on (freehand art). Glitter and shimmering metallic colours can also be applied for that dazzling look - ideal for fashion parades and festival events. We have many designs to choose from or I can create a customised design for you, from small to large sizes, and even provide designs of your company's logo (if permission is obtained) for corporate events.
Face and body art (painted on using quality face paints or drawn on using Body Art pens) are ideal for themed parties, theatrical shows and fashion events.
You are welcomed, by arranging an appointment, to come to our henna and body art studio, located in Wanneroo close to the main shopping and fast food areas, or I (we) can come to you to apply henna or temporary ink tattoos and for our body art services within the suburbs of Perth. A transport fee will be additional for areas outside the Perth metro area (eg: South of Rockingham, North of Clarkson, East of Midland, Swan Valley or The hills areas ie: Mundaring).
Other art services we facilitate include: various artworks (including mural painting, drawing/painting techniques); various craft workshops including - card mozaics, large paper mache pinatas/sculptures, creating things out of recycled items, collages, bead activities/jewelry making, decorating pots, creating wind spirals, Foamie Creations (fridge magnets, sun visors) and lots more!, for schools, youth programs, festivals and community events, as well as themed activities and packages for children's parties.
