    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.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. I really care about people not only through my art but in nutrition as well. I am a very healthy person and have gained much knowledge about the correct way to eat, this is something I try to teach to others too.

I love children and gain a lot from my work with them. I have a 3 year old myself and I am a single mother.
