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!

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.

Several years back I was looking for a unique gift for my mom on Mother's Day. When I visited Custom Creations By Cindy, Cindy was right on top of what I was asking for her to provide. She showed me several unique, one of kind creations that I was able to select from at a reasonable price. My mom loves the gift that I picked out for her from Custom Creations By Cindy, and she never has to worry about someone else wearing the same item. A few years later, I wanted to get a matching wedding band for my wife for her anniversary. Since it had been fifteen years, I could no longer find it. Cindy was able to get this done for me as well. We had it encase the engagement ring and now it is a triple band and my wife loves it.... I could go on, but I think you get the idea. Custom Creations By Cindy is the place for my custom jewelry needs.

Daniel did a great job at our son's 16th birthday party. With 20+ teenagers and parents, he was able to make some amazing balloon creations. The large, wearable unicorn and giraffe animals were incredible. They were over 5' long, and wrapped around one's body. The motorcycle that wrapped around the waiste was fun; it even had a flashing headlight! We have had balloon artists from his family at numerous events over the years. They are all fantastic.

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.

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.

Katerina is a great painter and an art teacher! She teaches my daughter arts over a year and kid is loving it. I also been to couple of her art and wine workshops and had loads of fun. She also did some cool face painting at kids Birthday. So I would say she is flexible and extremely professional artist!
