About this pro

I am proud to have earned a Best Entertainer of 2015 Award from Thumbtack! Since then I earned their TOP PRO status (less than 4% of their artist ever become a Top Pro.) They rate us several times a year, and I have maintained that status for years! Though I have been painting for 29 years I still meet monthly year around with a group of very dedicated professionals to keep up with the latest techniques, products and industry news. I do as much as I possibly can for my clients with lots of added value features and I don't charge for these. I go to great lengths to personalize each event so my clients will have photographs that chronicle their photos on Facebook and Instagram etc. I have many Photo Opportunity Boards which the kids and adults love! And I have more designs than any painter I know. People can look things up on the Internet on their iPhones and show me a Mike Tyson tattoo for example and I can create that for them! For many of the two hour events I write a Personalized Poem prior to the event, frame it and read it when the cake is cut! It's the gift that keeps on giving! Many people cherish their poems for many years. I also give cute hair clips and headbands to the girls who need help keeping the hair out of their faces. I also have more glitter, rhinestones and pearls than any one I know to bedazzle the designs! And I give pirate hats and pirate patches to the kids/adults who want to become a pirate that day! ONE STOP ENTERTAINMENT SHOP! Because I have so many wonderful peers that I work with year around I have become a One Stop Entertainment Shop! Oddly ,our industry isn't regulated yet so my clients literally can count me for all of their corporate or home party needs. I paid extra to Thumbtack for the police background check, I am insured and use the finest FDA approved face paint and body glues and the peers I recommend have high safety standards as well. I will locate the best bounce houses, photo booths, dunk tanks, petting zoo, carnival games, margarita and snow cone machines, Hot dog/Snow Cone & Candy Cane machines and so much more!! Personalize your party with a real retired Disneyland artist to create caricature art, I will help you hire a fabulous balloon twister, crown, extra face painters etc. etc. just call me and I will help you get anything or anyone you want to make your party an unforgettable success!! I love painting, love people of all ages, love creating custom designs to exceed everyone's expectations! Love repeat business, it let's me be assured my clients are pleased with my work!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      My special offer is that once I paint at your party, I offer you $25 for every party I book at my regular rate due to your referral! Clients can literally make hundreds of dollars a month if they refer me to several parties! My pricing is $75 a hr. with a 2 hr. minimum. If the event goes past 2 hrs., the price for all extra hrs. is $60/hr. The price may soon be going to $100 an hr. However, sometimes, once I make my 2 hr. minimum, if the event is still going on and I don't have an event afterwards, sometimes I can give my clients an extra 1/2 hr or so for FREE! TRAVEL FEES MAY ALSO APPLY. I will be coming from Citrus Heights. Also, I offer a BUSINESS BUILDER program for all types of companies, retailers, restaurants, etc. CLIENTS CAN RECEIVE A DISCOUNT FOR MULTIPLE BOOKINGS! I put a professional lawn sign with helium balloons tied to it outside of their business that says FREE FACE PAINTING TODAY! for customers of...(and then I put the name of the client's business). They pick an amount....$3 or $5 usually. Then their customers have to spend $5 per design. So if it's a restaurant for example, if they spend $15 on food, they can have 3 children painted for free! I have so many designs, the kids often want to come back the next week for other designs. If a business has me come all month (let's say, "Face Paint Fridays, from 4 - 6 pm), then we post signs when I will be there, and we both put the info on our social media places. The first week, the client pays me my minimum $150 for 2 hrs. Each Friday after that, They only pay $100 for 2 hrs. for the rest of the month!!! PERSONALIZED POETRY is very inexpensive already. However, if a person orders several poems, they can get a discount! All 2 hr. events get one Personalized Poem, framed, complimentary. If you want just a poem, without the party, the fee is only about $50 per 1 page poem or $2 per line. SONG WRITING. Personalized songs can run more, call for details.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      It is all about personalizing their event! Hopefully I can get the client to call me that is key! If I can talk with the person a few minutes it saves tons of emails and we can get so much accomplished in just a few minutes over the phone. With a call, I only have to tell clients what they want to know for their event and their needs.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I attend face paint classes every month! (Sometimes I teach the class, sometimes I take a class!) I also take classes on line for face painting, and acrylic painting. I also train year around with John Denton, an amazing artist who worked at Disneyland for 20 years. I'm honored to be his student! Occasionally take balloon twisting classes. I write personalize poems for my clients and I don't take classes for that it's something that I've done since I was a child. I'm proud to say some of my poems of actually been life-changing in a good way! I've taken a ukulele class but I have to practice more before adding that to my repertoire!
