She lived in Ottawa, Canada where she had the opportunity to explore her interest in Body Make Up through the interaction with makeup designers for the French-Canadian company “Cirque du Soleil”. This is how she consolidated as a Body Makeup Artist, also known as “Body Painting”.
Erika currently lives in Miami, USA where she created “AKIN Body Painting” (www.akinbp.com) a company specialized in social events, using the body painting as a manner of artistic expression.
She has been invited by several radio and television programs including: Univision, Telemundo, TV Azteca, Mega TV, TV Mexiquense, etc., She is constantly participating in festivals and art galleries. She has given interviews to newspapers and magazines in both Mexico and the United States.
She has had the opportunity to bring her passion for travelling and exhibit her work in countries like Italy, France, Mexico, Canada and Switzerland.
Erika and her photographer partner M Garces launched a unique, fashion and creative décor and merchandise line named BE YOU Collection™. She shared her talent to developed a select set of Keywords expressing optimistic thoughts made by hand painted human figures performing each of the alphabet letters.
She has managed to merge her knowledge and experience as a Clinical psychologist, Educational psychologist and Body Make Up Artist by developing an Interactive Workshop named “Painting Emotions”. Erika uses innovative techniques based on body painting and music where the participants have the opportunity to learn how to become aware and process emotions helping them become more productive at work/school and happier at home.
The artist is grateful to have had the opportunity to reinvent herself and have found the way to help people using one of the most primitive ways of communication, the ‘Art of Transformation’, as she calls Body Painting, to communicate and externalize their ideas about the magic of life.

How is a typical workday
Along with a good night sleep, there are several things I need to take into consideration such as; the idea of a design previously agreed on with the client. I also confirm with the photographer, make-up and hair designer, and model to make sure that there are no last minute surprises. One night before, I set up the required material. I need patience and focus to get prompt desired results!
