Denise Williams of Creative Face Painting was professional from start to finish. I carefully selected her services after reviewing many face painting artists and their work. The face painting she created on all the children's faces at our daughter's birthday party were truly exceptional artwork. I have attended many children's birthday parties and I have never seen such beautiful face painting. The parent's were literally blown away by Denise's work. My daughter looked like a beautiful fairy and all the other guests had amazing artwork on their faces as well. Of course the children were delighted and captivated by her work. Denise and her assistant also applied beautiful glitter tattoos and some henna tattoos for our older guests. I will be hiring her again in the future.
David and the other 2 artists were AMAZING!! They were so professional and handled the constant flow of people they had going through the lines with ease. I will definitely recommend David and his services to everyone I know. 100% the BEST part of our picnic. Every person that has came to me this morning to talk about the keeps telling me how much they loved the caricatures! Thanks again David for helping to make our picnic a success!
Dhara is THE most amazing and professional artist! Not only did she contact me promptly but after I booked her services, she also maintained communication and followed up on all details for my daughter's quinceanera. Dhara was also able to provide excellent options for our Bollywood themed party, from decorations to Indian deserts to Bindi for my daughter! She came all the way to Rancho Cucamonga, arrived on time and was sooo friendly with all guests! During her 4 hour artistry, she was able to accommodate all requests, from designs for kids around 6-9 years old to teenagers that wanted specific unique designs that they found online and even adults who wanted "freestyle" traditional designs. What made it even more special was that she made my daughter such an intricate and grandiose design that she felt like a princess! Dhara also used glitter for that perfect sparkle on the henna tattoos. It was an absolute pleasure working with Dhara and I cannot wait to experience her services again. This was the first time using Thumbtack and I had such a positive result - I am so thankful to Dhara for helping to make my daughter's 15th an amazing day!!! Thank you Dhara!!! =)
We hired Sonia for her services at the University of San Diego for a basketball game. Throughout the entire process of coordinating things for the day Sonia was very professional and responsive. She also was able to make a custom stencil for the glitter tattoo's which was great! Sonia and her sons were amazing and we would definitely love to have them back again.
Priti was very cordial every efficient she worked with whatever situation or location she was in and was very fast and flawless. She is extremely talented. She made sure everyone was happy and served. Most artists come with two people she was fast enough to do it alone. She talked to everyone and formed relationships. Her pricing was amazing. Everyone there was raving about her work. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She communicated so well personally, through emails and texting. I was very comfortable that she had everything under control. Once I texted her at 11pm and she called me back and arranged everything. She is the best I have experienced at any wedding.
Oriana is an amazing artist!!! We had her at our French themed birthday party in a park and she created 30 of those most amazing face designs I have ever seen. Almost every guest took her card and mentioned to me how amazing it was. Her actual work exceeded the pictures online!! She is also great with the kids, very patient and was early, set up her own area and completely independent. Can't recommend enough!
Ellen was fantastic to work with. I wanted to do a couple of outdoor murals. She was the most responsive muralist I interviewed. And she was enthusiastic about the job and full of ideas! The job evolved a bit and every step of the way she was most concerned about using a technique that would produce the best finished product. She researched several alternatives to hand painting and when we weighed the options she felt strongly that custom stencils would work best. In the end, I paid for her design/consultation but was able to take the stencils and paint them myself. Bottom line, in addition to being very talented, she was incredibly helpful. If I have a painting project in the future I would not hesitate to hire her. I have already referred her to friends who are interested in murals for their homes.
Vaishali did such a beautiful job on my both my hands and feet. So creative and authentic. I would recommend her for any henna work you may have. Not only is she a top notch henna artist she is also very kind and humble. Amazing art work! Thank you, Debra B
Cori did such a wonderful job for me that I referred her to my boss, who hired her to paint 4 custom pieces on canvas for our office along with or company logo and signage for the front lobby in two of our offices. Cori's work is beautiful!
I found Dackz Murals & Custom Designs through Thumbtack. I am very impressed with his art work. Lots of my customers took pictures and posted on Facebook & Instagram .
My family and I have had a family portraits done on many occasions with Jeanine. Our grandfather had a portrait in mind that was very specific, 4 artists later we met Jeanine through a business partner who had commissioned her in the past. What an incredible experience. Jeanine delivered a spectacular likeness of Grandfather that we are all proud of. Jeanine is most certainly our family artist into the future.
Through our association over decades, I've accompanied Monica to her art classrooms, studio and mural sites in schools, public spaces and private homes. She has an inobtrusive, friendly nature and the skills to work out with new clients just what it is they want, from the early stages of an idea through to the completion of a piece. Her artistic sensibility and the discipline to do what she loves doing combines to make her a confident, competent and flexible artist. Her color knowledge tests in the exceptional range. IMO, Monica is a "professional's professional;" established and trusted in the community. Two thumbs up!
I asked Christine Haenen to do a portrait of my son for his 21st birthday. He did one sitting at Christine's studio in Culver City, which only took about an hour and a half. The portrait is a pencil sketch on paper. I could not be more pleased with the portrait, and I am amazed that Christine was able to do it in such a short time. The portrait shows my son as he really appears now. She captures the truth about his character and spirit. In other words, Christine did not simply produce a picture to flatter and enhance. She is a serious artist who produces work of quality and integrity. I have seen some of her other work, and it displays the same high quality. I expect that we will enjoy Christine's portrait of my son for a very long time. As for the price, it was more than reasonable for a portrait of this quality by an artist of Christine's extensive training and experience. She also provided a simple frame to save me the trouble. Finally, Christine is a gracious and easy person to work with. All in all, I can give the highest recommendation to Christine's services.
Learon costume designed our short film, STRING! She not only has a knack for fulfilling the vision of the project, but elevates the costumes by bringing her unique artistic sensibility and style. She's a joy to collaborate with and a huge talent. I look forward to working with her again.
Ms Bobbie has a gift for working with children. She has been teaching art to my 4 and 7 year old for over a year at our home and they absolutely love her. They are always so excited for art class to start and she always comes promptly. They have both grown in skill, creativity and perseverance as artists since she has been working with them. The quality of the art instruction that they receive far exceeds other teachers and classes we have tried in the past. Recently she started working with my 10 year old who has autism (low-functioning, non-verbal) and I was amazed at how quickly she was able to make him feel comfortable and the artwork she was able to do with him. I wished we had put him in her class earlier! She just has a way with kids, putting them at ease and drawing out their talents and creativity! Absolutely would recommend her! Especially for anyone who has kids with special needs.
I recently got married and had a Hindu ceremony as part of my wedding. In honor of tradition, Farwa came to my home two days before the wedding for Mehndi, where she did bridal henna on my hands and feet, as well as henna for my family members. She also came to my rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding to do henna for our wedding guests. Her work is exquisite! She is extremely talented, quick, and easy to work with. My in-laws are Indian and have a lot of experience with henna artists. They had many high compliments to share about Farwa, including how finely detailed her work is, which they said is very hard to find! Thank you, Farwa, for your beautiful work on my special day. I only wish my henna could have lasted for months! I'd definitely book Farwa again when the occasion arises!
We attended the Studo's monthly Art Party as a date night and had SUCH a good time- the atmosphere was really fun and relaxed. I enjoyed it SO much I am now attending weekly painting lessons with Moises. I have no natural artistic talent but Moises is so nurturing and patient that I actually feel like I'm learning and getting a little better every week.
This guy is amazing. Caricature Artists are hard to come by in Los Angeles. Check out his portfolio! https://www.artbyhaven.com/
If you want to have an epic party that will have people talking long afterwards, then you have to have Tracee Wann and Glitter Body Art. For my daughter's sweet sixteen, Trace proved to be more popular than the DJ, the cake, or even the hosted bar. Ages from toddler to senior citizens all lined up for a glittery tattoo. I heartily recommend Tracee to anyone looking to throw an epic party or other social gathering.
Isabel is the most passionate makeup artist I've ever met. Money comes with what she does, but she mainly does it because she loves it. I thought my hunt for a good makeup artist will never end until I met Isabel. SHE'S THE BEST! I have weird eyelids but she somehow just knows how to work with them. She made me look and feel gorgeous every time she did my makeup. I didn't have to worry about providing anything for her because she had everything she needed. Trust me, she knows what she's doing. But even then, she still respects your requests. She charges for a decent price, but the outcome of her work is excellent. Isabel is very professional and responsive. She does her best to work around with your schedule if you want to do a trial with her. If you haven't tried Isabel, you're missing out! She's worth giving a shot! I had no regrets.
We commissioned Duncan for a custom portrait of myself this Christmas. We were most impressed with his contemporary style and range of abilities. Color was very important to us, and Duncan walked us through every step. He finished the project fast, was professional, and always made himself available to us. Anyone would be lucky to work with Duncan, we will certainly be calling him again next year!
