St.Maarten #1 Face And Body Painter Larich Speaks To The Fashion Police In London Town!!!

Top Leading # 1 Face/body painter Ms Lucinda  Audian known by many as  La Rich
1)Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?


My name is Lucinda Audain better known as, La Rich the Artist. Born and raised in St. Maarten. I am a painter(Face&Bodypainter), spoken word poet and event/stage designer. Most people have come to know me for my face and body art. But for the last year I have been doing more stage and event decor/designing for Artemia an event and d├ęcor company, which i work for. I have my own company La Rich Arts & Funtopia by La Rich which is more of event entertainment management. With my degree in business management I have been focusing a lot on Art management seeing that it is needed in our community. 
  


2)What 2 words best describe you as a person?

Resilient and progressive 



3)Describe your fashion sense?

I have to laugh at that one. My fashion sense is comfortable. I am always covered in paint. I love urban bohemian swag but still love a black cocktail dress when necessary.


4)There are many doing what your doing what makes you different from all the rest?

I do a little of everything being multi talented it may seem like a lot to many but I am an artist and creating is what I do no matter if i am using words, paint or decor to captivate my audience. To me it’s all the same, just different tools, mediums and disciplines. It’s easy for me to transition from one to the next and even fusion several different skills together. I believe this gives me a bit of an edge because one never really knows what I will come with next and keeps life exciting. 



5)Tell us how to started then to this very date?

Being an artist has always been my ambition. I can remember from the age of 6 years I use to steal tubes of paint from my uncle and my moms boyfriend at the time. 
And use them to paint abstract images of what I thought were reality. Through the years I became more comfortable with drawing and painting. I took art classes at the St. Maarten Academy during my high school years and also took private lessons from Ruby Bute. I was known in my teenage years for creating portraits and landscapes, which were popular at the various exhibitions, I was featured in.

During my time away at college I didn’t do much painting because of time restraints. It was when I completed my studies i started painting again and La Rich became my artist name and it took off from there and hasn’t stopped since

.

6)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?

Right now i am wearing Rihanna that scent is vexon sexy :)! lol 


7)What do you love most about your job?

That it’s never the same. Every day is a new adventure. I am not one to be confined to routines.

I love it. I think it’s a great avenue to give insight on local artists and what’s going on in the fashion and art world.  

11)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?

Well I think that’s and art form in its self and I believe once you have mastered the art doesn't matter if you are a man or woman it’s a gift and  I applaud those men that take their time to teach women to perfect their walk.
  

12)What advice do you have for others looking to walk into your footsteps?

Consistency is the key to success. There are many people out there with the same hopes and dreams and aspirations what sets one from everyone else is your passion and drive and being consistent. Nothing worth having comes easy. 

13)Who are your 3 best friends you would ride and die for?

Not much of a booty shaker! I am the tipsy 2step chick that likes being in the center of the dance floor. But for sure Drake start it from the bottom now we here!!!!! Some Konshen 

15)What makes a good and bad body painter?

Good Body painters’ don’t just paint a body they connect with their canvas and create magic. There is nothing more fore filling when you capture some essence of that person’s character in your art on their body. Be it for a personal shoot or a event they would rock that painting because it’s them.

It’s hard to say what is a bad body painter but i guess if your line work is isn’t on point and you don’t understand colors and skins tones it can go totally wrong. 


16)If you was given 1 ticket to fly any where in the world where would you go and why?

Hollywood BABY! I want to get into the movies, special effects make up and all that crazy stuff. 


17)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare for them?

Well I ask prior to your arrival if you're a vegetarian or not. If you aren’t I would make my mouth watering lasagna with some home made garlic bread and a fresh Cesar salad.   

18)Where do you see yourself in 7 years time?
Touring the world sharing my art. Having art shows or teaching workshop inspiring the world.


19)What do you love most about being a body painter?

Connecting with new people. Forming new relationships making magical memories 

20)What are 4 things women do that makes you mad?

Hmmmm!! When a woman that is too picky or too loud or super selfish don’t like it. 


21)If you had the chance to do body painting on 3 people of your choice on the island who would it be and why?
I would love to body paint 


Nicole de Weever because I would love to see my art in beautiful dance form
Clara Reyes because there is so much of her energy that will bring out a great piece
Ruby Bute because she has grace that will surely bring out something amazing



22)Any last words for our many blog readers?

Stay blessed and stay tuned in to my facebook page LaRichArts and look out for the next body painting show. Its going to be amazing. Thank you for the opportunity to share a little bit of me.



23)If the Fashion Police was to be a fly on your bedroom wall what would they be so shock to see?

Lol! My whole sale stock of face and body paint supplies that will be hitting the market soon. I live and breath that stuff J




24)If you was not to be a body painter what would you then be doing?

Seeing that body painting is one of my skills. I would probably be writing kids books or poetry. I love that but I don’t have the time to invest into it as I would like.
