After years as a painter and illustrator, Mark's photography was discovered by Hugh Hefner, which changed the direction of his creative career.
Already an internationally known designer, known for doing work for such clients as Disney and Edison International, Mark began dabbling in the area of body painting for use in fine art images in the 1980s.
FrazierArts.com landed the best job in the industry when it secured the Playboy Mansion parties and several magazine spread and cover jobs.
The rest is history.
Since that time, Mark has been under contract to Playboy, Bacardi, St. Martin Spirits, Benchwarmer, and numerous other clients for both his photography and body painting talents.
Mark's artwork can be found in numerous issues of Playboy magazine- both cover design and photography as well as bodypainted ladies.
The newest addition to Mark's portfolio are canvas paintings of famous sports stars such as former USC football players Anthony Davis and Reggie Bush. Mark is currently on the Board of Directors of the Anthony Davis foundation and has contributed his talents by designing the bronze trophy for the foundation. The original trophy will reside in the Nike world headquarters.

The "Big Picture" is Susan's forte. As former performer, she has the innate ability to see how the bodypaint drawings should be transferred form paper to the body of a live model. Match color with skin tone, outfit shapes with body type and color intensity with room lighting are some of her gifts. Her Nursing background ensures a clean work space even when Messy Mark is in the room. Her management skills definitely create a calm during the storm.
People we meet can't help but ask how she puts up with her husband seeing all those naked women. First, its just part of the business. This is no different than all the bodies she has seen working as a registered nurse. Second, Susan is a beach girl at heart. She grew up seeing beautiful bodies everywhere in almost no clothing.
Before the girls go up to the events, Susan and her team of finishers spend hours gluing rhinestones and painting other fine line details to the outfits.
Megan attends UCLA. From doing artists' renderings for their clients to working as a bodypainter for live events, she has been involved at various levels in the family business.
Her classical training as a dancer by the American Ballet Theater in New York, and Ballet Pacifica on the west coast belies her true passion in musical taste. All being told, she is a Rocker at heart.
