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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Mo was amazing! The portrait was more than I expected! He's very prompt at responding to my million questions. He wasn't pushy at all, he was very patient with me in obtaining a young picture of my mom. My parents didn't have a wedding picture so I hired Mo to create a wedding portrait of my parents as a Christmas present for my Mom since my Dad passed away last year. I sent him a young picture of my mom and dad and a dress my mom would've picked as her wedding dress. I can't express how grateful I am that I found him. Definitely highly recommended!!!
