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 I have a no refund policy on security deposits unless you cancel within 72 hours of booking (time starts after deposit is received.)

Awe, I absolutely loved Tasha and her unique, cool, and fabulous face painting skills for my daughters joint birthday party!!! I think she actually made the party! I had a family emergency and also cancelled the party, but then needed up still having but with less children and I called her to ask about still doing the party, and she picked up right away and accommodated my needs and change of party locations. She showed up a little early, which is great, and everyone really adored her. She also did some balloon twisting for the girls which was an added bonus. One of the balloons was a lady bug, and so very cute! Thank you !!!!

Hire Tashia! She is so easy to work with. She responded quick, worked around my schedule, offered so many activities including face painting, balloons, games, and more. She was great with the children at the party and was able to keep the large group of kids entertained by herself. She went above and beyond what I asked her for. You are in the right hands with this girl! We had so much fun and created some memories to cherish. ❤️ Thank you, Tashia!

Tashia was fantastic! I can’t say enough about the quality of her face paint design for my kids’ birthday party! She was efficient and the kids absolutely LOVED the designs! I would highly recommend Tashia for her professionalism, artistry and value! You get what you pay for and she was highly worth it!

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
