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.

Cindy (Custom Creations By Cindy) is a brilliant jeweler with excellent stock and an even better attitude. She found me a matched pendant and ring for my wife, who was absolutely dumbfounded by the beauty and quality of the pieces. Major happiness for her, major brownie points for me. Thanks, Cindy! I'll be back for more next time jewels are on the agenda.

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.

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.

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!

If you're looking for free-hand works of beauty, Rica is the only artist to call. She has the amazing gift of personalizing your theme, if you have one, or of creating an image that reflects you, your whimsy! Pure artistry! Of course, the technical aspect of perfect henna blends is always there as well. Traditional, tribal, fun, whatever your need, Rica is the best!

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.
