Our face painting/balloon artist was really great with the kids. She had a sweet demeanor and even came dressed as a character from Frozen. I thought you did a great job on the face painting. To be honest I didn't think the balloon animals were just ok. But I thought her face painting was really nice. The parents seem to like it as well. I recommend people hiring her. Her bid was much more expensive than the other bids *$100 more* But I figured because she can do balloons and paint faces she would be worth it. & I liked the professional website and payment option. In hindsight I probably would've asked to get no balloon animals and paid a little less. Otherwise, I think she did a great great job. I gave a 5 for professionalism, demeanor and face painting.

Annie was very friendly and the kids enjoyed her. She has an artists syle to her graphics and the characters were nicely painted. The color on some could be more vivid. I would hire her again. She may want to include in her post that the fastest way to communicate with her is via electronic mail on Thumbtack.

Tina was PHENOMENAL! She was the highlight of our 3 year old's birthday party. Tina was very patient and her designs were amazing. Many of the mothers at the party raved about the quality of her designs & creativity; of which I concurred with, obviously. I also loved how reasonable Tina's price was compared to other artists! She's definitely a must at any little girl's (or boys) party! The kids will LOVE her! Thank you Tina!

Jennifer is wonderful face painting artist. She did a beautiful job for our "kitty-themed" party and she handled all 22 girls with grace and ease. She stayed well after the party to ensure some girls got their face painted. She did a great job! Highly recommend!

Barbara was amazing! We hired her last minute for Grad Night after our original person was unable to do it. She was gracious from start to finish, a true artist and professional. She arrived early and was ready to go on time and she even stayed a bit extra to henna our event organizer. The kids loved her work, she was able keep everyone happy and keep the line moving. You won't be disappointed if you hire Barbara for your event, her pricing is fair and well worth it!

We had Linda and her husband at my daughter's 5th birthday party and the experience was nothing short of amazing! She had quite a presentation - artist's chair, painiting ideas, full table of makeup, and tattoos - all set up in a matter of minutes. They were so great with all of the kids and made even the most nervous ones feel completely at ease. And the designs - incredible! She captured what each person asked for, and if she didn't know exactly what they were asking for she looked it up on her phone to make sure the design was just what they were looking for. We had about 40 people at the party and they were able to paint and tattoo everyone that asked in less than two hours. We set her up right in the middle of everything and they became part of the party. I would HIGHLY recommend her services, and next time we have a need we will DEFINTELY be calling her!

You guys do absolutely the best caricatures I've seen! Xin Man Li is a fantastic artist and very detailed in creating backgrounds. Thank you very much for capturing our special moments! We had a caricature done last April to capture our engagement in Monterey (sunset at Lover's Point) and used this for our wedding invitation. We went to Bora Bora for our honeymoon and I had another drawn to capture the beauty and fun we had there. Both drawings came out so beautifully, that I have commissioned a third drawing to capture our wedding day and will design our photo album around the three drawings. THANK YOU!

I appreciate that Yurik was willing to take on a small and subtle job of performing a color adjustment on an existing piece I owned. He even came on site to my home to do it. The color adjustment he accomplished was so perfect, so right, that one would never know he was here. That's how good it looked. This job had little glory for Yurik, but he jumped in and did it anyway, with a great attitude. Not a lot of artists would do that. I will definitely keep in touch with Yurik, as he has a wide artistic skill set. Do not hesitate to work with him.

Angie was GREAT for our carnival! Super prompt and flexible-- ready to do what we needed. Communication before-hand lacked professionalism of other artists but was still effective. Thanks!
