What you'll do

Become a living work of art immortalized in high resolution, art photographs featuring you body-painted with a unique, detailed paint scheme tailored to your body.

Imagine that we are peeling away your existing skin to reveal the supernatural being underneath.

My bodypainting designs enhance and celebrate bodies; minimizing or eliminating surface features like cellulite, wrinkles and skin discolorations.

All paintings are done with a paint brush. There are no stencils or airbrushing. Guests lie down for the most part during the painting and have a relaxing spa experience with music and meditation, or invite friends for a paint party.

After the painting, we photograph on the dock with Nassau's beautiful harbour and Paradise Island in the background.

Weather and time permitting, we may take the jet ski to the beautiful over-water, Never Say Never Bar to show off your body-painting.

I am a Bahamian bodypaint artist and professional photographer working internationally for the past 7 years. My paintings have represented the Bahamas at official events, been featured in art museums and galleries, trains in Europe, calendars, publications, international television and numerous magazines.

10 years ago I walked away from my successful architecture business to travel the world, paint and photograph.

Where you'll be

Paintings take place on my 46' boat docked at Harbour Central Marina, near Paradise Island Bridge. Painting is either under an awning on the bow of the boat or indoors with AC. The boat remains at the dock and photographs take place overlooking Nassau Harbour and Paradise Island.

It was the most magical experience ! Monty really has a way of making sure you’re comfortable and making your experience worth every moment. I definitely recommend doing this if you are looking for something unique and to be free. I love his art and it was amazing to become a living art piece. We all are , might as well bring it into colour ! And Monty knows how to make you feel special and love every moment you spend being one !

I have been dreaming about being painted for years. When I saw Monty’s website, I knew it had to be him that painted me! He made every effort to make me feel comfortable with my body and also taught me how to model for better photographs. He said that he would email us the photos in a few days. I might just die waiting to see how beautiful he made me. Thanks Monty for a wonderful day!

Monty was a delight. Our conversations were potent and meaningful. I saw the listing for "You As Living Art" and immediately knew it was something I wanted to do to honor myself as a woman and commemorate my year of transformation. The body painting experience deepened my love for my physical body and expanded my soul in a phenomenal way. Monty helped me discover my inner goddess--something I never imagined possible. Magic!

Wow what can I say??? The hours with Monty create a full EXPERIENCE! Staring with the view and Monty making you comfortable, to the breeze and sounds of the water, to the moments you see yourself as a creation and play around on camera.... The reveal of your final photos will leave you speechless! You really can’t put a price on this encounter but thankfully he did. Monty makes you feel like you’ve known him a while and allows you to see yourself in a whole new way by the time you are leaving the boat. If you are on the fence, jump it and enjoy the ride!

I can’t say enough about having Monty paint me. It was such a unique and amazing experience. The touch of the brush, the cool wet paint, the fascinating conversation all led to an incredible photo shoot on the pier. The photos are a permanent reminder of this incredible experience. I recommend this to everyone. Life is about experiences. And that’s what Monty gives you. A very unique and amazing experience.

Monty will make you feel like a work of art. He has a gift for seeing all the beauty, expression and color inside of people, and he draws it out through his painting. He is professional, and I quickly felt relaxed and comfortable with him throughout the experience, even if I felt awkward at first. I truly enjoyed the whole experience, and I can't recommend this enough! You will fall in love with your skin!
