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!

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.

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.

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.

Educated, intelligent and dilligent, Dean rose above expectations when I reached out asking to have my portrait done. We worked together brainstorming for a while what we’d like the piece to convey and in the process i recieved a computer mockup of the piece. Dean is a great artist and great person and I would definitely recommend him to those looking for an art tutor or to thise who wish to have a piece commissioned by him.

awesome, awesome experience. She was very thorough and detailed, working through several pictures that I was inspired by and created her own work of art that imbued that feel. High quality as well as reasonable pricing (very reasonable!!). Will for sure go back again for future artwork.

I had her make a custom gift Myself and a friend. I don’t know if she realizes how talented she is with her drawing. I sent her two photos to go off of and they were dead on. Having her transform a photo into a work of art is such a unique gift idea.

We convinced Moses to come down to San Diego for a painting party for my fathers 80th birthday party . One of the reasons we chose Moses was because he was the only artist that would take on the challenge of letting us all paint a photo of my father from when he was a teen . Moses used a custom technique using a stencil that allowed the entire group to release our inner artist . He was patient with all both young and old , and shared his passion for art and free expression with the group. Moses is the real deal! We hope to commission him for a custom piece In the future .

I am a new author and after several interviews with other artists, I chose Ian to hand paint the art for my child’s book. I had a vision... I wanted a very classic and organic, personal look, and feel for this book. Not an easy task. Thank goodness.. Not only is Ian gifted and talented, he is passionate and an extremely imaginative individual. He had open ears to all my ideas and met every expectation and vision I had for this book. He was professional, punctual and hit every dead line given. As a writer, It can be so difficult to communicate a vision to someone and then have it translated to paper...on top of this experience being brand new to me and the learning curve that comes with it. With that being said, His communication and patience with me and this book was more than I could have ever asked for from an artist ...It made this experience so much fun for me and We were a wonderful team. He went above and beyond for this project on several occasions. I’m looking forward to many more years of publishing and watching my stories come to life with him as my artist.

Overall, we had an amazing experience with Joy! Any "hiccups" along the way were a result of occasional malfunctioned technology. From the start and consistently throughout the project, Joy, a very versatile and professional artist, insists on producing the highest quality of art. She illustrated our board members as Superheroes! We were ecstatic of the final illustrations! Not only is Joy a true artist, but she is a "joy" to work with, and has become a good friend as well!!

I hired them during the summer of 2015 to do the makeup for my best friends wedding and our bridesmaids. She was extremely thorough in all emails and the details of the contract were very clearly explained and so easy to understand! I was a little hesitant of only have one makeup artist for 8 women with a 5 hour time frame but she made us feel very relaxed. It was super nice to have only on girl busy at a time so we could keep up our shenanigans and not feel like we were really "getting ready." I would suggest to future clients to research the looks you want and pay for a trial session!!! We loved our makeup, but it would have been closer to what we wanted if we sat down with her, detailed everything out, and gave it a try first. I'll definitely be hiring her for my wedding... Whenever that is! Lol
