I got my first chance to work with UltraViolet reactive paint for the GLOW festival at the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz. It was an absolute pleasure to work with model/dancer Jennifer Radakovich, who moved in mesmerizing ways under the blacklights! Thanks too to creative photographer Larry Colen!
