“My daughter Bonney Donachie who is 12 is an aspiring special effects makeup artist and has been self-taught from YouTube over the last 2 years. When I posted her work on Facebook and Instagram my inbox became flooded with parents asking how old she was, where did she learn to do this intricate art work and how can they get their kids involved.” — Scott Donachie
