Mayon part of winning body paint team in Texas

Cory Mayon of Pasadena, Texas, and formerly of Bayou Vista, served as an assistant artist to Brittney Pelloquine during a body painting event held during Motorcycle and Makeup Madness on March 9 in East Columbia, Texas. The duo took first place in the five-team competition.

Teams were comprised of known painters in the Houston and surrounding areas and was an invitation-only competition. Team Figuratively Speaking was comprised of Pelloquine of Sugarland, Texas, and formerly of Lafayette, Mayon and model Kayla Lynne of Katy, Texas.

Mayon is a 2007 graduate of Berwick High School and a 2011 graduate of Louisiana College in Pineville with a degree in athletic training with a minor in chemistry. He attends Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Texas, working toward a doctorate in chiropractics and specializing in sports medicine.

He got into body painting when a friend asked him to paint her for the Los Magnificos Car Show. The Wonder Woman body art appeared in the Houston Chronicle.

Pelloquine is a commissioned artist. She is an art instructor at Little Wonders in Missouri City, Texas, and also teaches private lessons.

Lynne is a bartender at Vida Loca Bar and Grill in Katy, Texas. She is enrolled in Houston Community College to finish her basics for nursing school. She models as a second means of income as well as a way to immerse herself in the arts.

Mayon and Pelloquine earned a cash prize and body paint supplies. Lynne was presented personalized makeup and a gift package of various modeling supplies.

Mayon is the son of Denise and Dwain Mayon of Bayou Vista.
