Serving the Greater New York Area, Jen Kossin is a multi-talented artist with a focus on body art. With a fine arts degree in theatre, she has never been confined to a flat canvas and sees art as a moving, breathing energy. She incorporates her spiritual practices into her body art, creating a memorable and heart-opening experience with the people she paints. Jen loves to create on the spot, intuitive, free-flowing designs on the body, utilizing the energy from the person to gain inspiration. Her style is ethereal, celestial, other-worldly, and she feels that every experience shared with another human is sacred.
Serving the Greater New York City Area, along with Westchester and Yonkers, Nicole Botte, professionally known as Cosmenicks, is a self-taught artist whose practice is well focused in the realm of body painting, SFX makeup, as well as beauty. Nicole currently is enrolled as a freshman Art+Design student studying sculpture at SUNY Purchase.
