Introduction: A Warm Hello! My name is Tashia gates and I specialize in professional facepainting, balloon art and character/Princess and clown entertainment for the young and young at heart. Recently featured in VoyageLA Magazine, I am a new freelance artist located in Los Angeles and will travel! My passion lies in co-creating each design and party with the parents and children themselves to promise a memorable and truly extraordinary experience! Quality of creations and the essence of joy is my focus;) I work with the highest quality of products. My paints are all hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and vegan. My balloons and glitter are biodegradable! I love to volunteer and give back to the community so you may find me in between gigs volunteering near Griffith Park:) ****please note that due to covid -19 I have an updated no refund policy on security deposits unless I must cancel on my end, then you will receive the deposit back in full. You may use your security deposit for a reschedule if I am available, otherwise the cost goes to cover lost wages, time and work to prep for the party. Thank you for your understanding.****

Tashia was simply the best. She came to my daycare for the Halloween party. She offered face painting and balloon twisting. Tashia is really patient and gentle with the children. I’ll definitely hire her again for my parties.

Details: School event • 1 - 10 guests • Younger than 4 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Face painting is needed

What an incredible experience from start to finish! On time, professional, exceptional quality, I can’t say enough great things about our first experience with Tashia at my 4 yr old’s bday party. If you want to hire a true artist face painter Tashia is your girl! She goes above and beyond and even made Balloon Twisting Mermaids for the littles. PS/ I am still getting texts from other mothers on how good she was! A+++

Details: Birthday party • 11 - 20 guests • 4 - 6 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Face painting is needed

Tashia is the best! We hosted a birthday party with around 15 kids ages 2-6 and not only were all the kids so happy with the balloons and face paint, tattoos ... but the parents couldn't stop raving about her work and want to hire her for their birthday parties. Tashia is super responsive, professional, and warm. She showed up early and didn't leave until every kid was taken care of. I will definitely hire her again ... and so should you!

Details: Birthday party • 1 - 10 guests • Younger than 4 years old • 4 - 6 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Face painting is not needed

Tashia is amazing! She was very friendly and the kids loved her! She was also very organized. All the kids had nice, detailed designs on their faces and fancy balloons. The kids were happy and that made me happy. I'm so thankful I found her! She made my daughter's first birthday party very memorable and I will always appreciate that and definitely recommend her to absolutely anyone! I promise you will not be disappointed!

Tasha was so great! I reached out to her last minute and luckily she was available! She came in and had such a good attitude and personality.She asked me what I wanted and she also suggested a few things because I had no idea what the kids would like. Everyone was so excited to get their face painted and get balloons. Tasha thank you so much for making my sons 1st birthday so special. I would definitely refer her and book her in the future.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    When working with a new costumer I always want to make sure they know I am about quality over quantity and I have a genuine joy for all my work. Each child deserves to feel like they are a special canvas. I like the parents to feel safe in knowing that not only am I trained but I have many years of experience interacting with kids as well. All my paints are vegan, hypo-allergenic and nontoxic. I would never put anything on a child’s face that I am not comfortable on my own. Therefore I use top of the line products, I am very skilled in different talents and at the same time I like to work feeling just in setting prices. My prices reflect my value and skills as an artist, product cost, time prep, time used and my value in being fair.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I start with a warm welcome! Then I make sure after the logistics are set to welcome the opportunity for a phone call to see in detail what the client wants to make the party exceptional! I ask question about the birthday boy or girl specifically..example, favorite character? Color? Is there a party theme? Do they have any allergies? Have the ever had their face painted?

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor’s degree with high honors from the University of Montana in performance art acting. I have professional credits in film and theatre for acting as well as makeup.
