    Tracy brought such a light to our party. Very professional and fun. Her face paintings were a hit among the children and adults. She was the sweetest and everyone said good things about her. I would hire her a million times over. I have absolutely no complaints and no request for change. She was just perfect.

    Prompt & on time and work was fantastic! The kids loved all the balloon art created by Collette! We'd love to use artovator's services again in the future. They made everything so convenient! I was a wreck trying to get the party together and Tracy was VERY accommodating to my questions and requests. Loved using Artovator!

    The face paintings look amazing! The kids at our party had a blast and the adults kept commenting about how great they looked. I loved the vibrant colors used and the art designs. Our face painter brought her own set up that looked very nice and professional. She was fabulous! I will definitely hire ARTovator again in the future.

Look at the work that the artist has done. Take prices and quality of work into consideration. Make sure the artist has a web site and insurance. I provide high quality work but have much lower than average prices.

I really care about people not only through my art but in nutrition as well.

I have a 3 year old myself and I am a single mother.
