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.

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!

Recently hired Amulya and one of her associates to be henna artists at the Diwali event in my company. Amazed by the quality of service. Amulya is super fast with her work and everyone who got the henna done was really happy with the designs they got. She was punctual, started on time and did not take any break for over 2 hours.. which was helpful since the queue was too long :) Will definitely recommend for henna services.

Noella is an extremely professional henna artist. She’s always on time and she’s great with every kind of henna design. She makes her own henna and it’s stains really quick and stays for about 3 weeks.

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!

Lewei is a patient teacher and a fun guy! Unlike typical artists, he’s more personable and can relate to others. In terms of style his drawings are full of imagination and vivid colors, with sublime storytelling power. Now I have a portrait of me being a supernatural guitar hero, can’t beat that.

She is awesome, it was a large party, and she did not stop to rest although her arm was tired as I noticed. She was doing face painting and her artistic talents are super!! She was right on time and had all her gear with her to do the job. Extremely easy to work with. I would give her 10 stars Peter Muhhawieh you could pass this review to anyone who wants to hire her.
