About Erika Monroy

Erika Monroy has a Bachelor’s of Science in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology.

Erika lived in Ottawa, Canada where she had the opportunity to explore her interest in Body Make Up through interaction with makeup designers for the French-Canadian company Cirque du Soleil. This is how she became established as a Body Makeup Artist, also known as Body Painting.

Erika currently lives in Miami, USA where she created AKIN Body Painting, a company specialized in social events, using Body Painting as a means of artistic expression.

Erika has been invited to participate in several radio and television programs including: Univision, Telemundo, TV Azteca, Mega TV, TV Mexiquense, etc. She is constantly participating in festivals and art galleries and been interviewed for newspapers and magazines in both Mexico and the United States.

She has had the opportunity to include her passion for travelling and exhibit her work in foreign countries such as: Italy, France, Mexico, Canada and Switzerland.

Erika and her Photographer partner, Maria Garcés launched the BE YOU Collection™, a unique fashion and creative décor/merchandise line. She utilized her talent to hand-paint a group of models which performed the letters of the Alphabet in impressive feats of acrobatics. The BE YOU Collection™ presents a select set of key words which express optimistic thoughts, composed of Body Painted letters.

She has managed to merge her knowledge and experience as a Clinical Psychologist, Educational Psychologist, and Body Make-Up Artist by developing the Interactive Workshop, Painting Emotions. Erika uses innovative techniques based on Body Painting and music in which the participants are given the opportunity to learn how to become aware and how to process emotions in order to become more productive at work/school and happier at home.

Erika is grateful to have had the opportunity to reinvent herself and to have found a way to help people via one of the most primitive means of communication, the “Art of Transformation”, as she refers to Body Painting, to communicate and externalize ideas about the magic of life.
