Keegan's Art Rocks the Body

Written by  Francesca La Scala


One Saturday evening, I was to model for Keegan Hitchcock, Face and Body Artist. While local, live bands played their latest hits, I took my place in front of a video-camera set up to record my first experience as a body canvas. I was asked if I was nervous, and I answered, "Definitely. But I am also excited to try something new every day, especially when it has artistic value."

Keegan is a beautiful spirit and an awe inspiring artist. She has a gift to make you feel at ease even in provocative circumstances, which works
well for her line of work. I must confess that Keegan's brush strokes were a soothing enchantment on my skin. Soon I got transported into the
heightened sensory stimulation of color, sound, and sensation. I had envisioned an aqua theme for myself, with accents of blue and green.

Keegan applied generous strokes of these exact hues with a delineation of black contours and fin designs. Two hours later, the effect was stunning. I was transformed into a mythical creature of the sea. The beauty of her creativity and craft left me speechless.

I was moved. You see, I always considered drawing on the body a sacred symbol of the mapping of your spiritual journey. Yet I never got a tattoo even when I was perfectly free to do so. I assure you, it is THE experience. I recommend anyone with a love of art and a little sense of adventure to explore Keegan's magic distilled in her face and body art.
