Jennifer is the absolute best. She works quickly and is a true artist. She helped me with body painting twice this past Halloween. Jennifer was easy to communicate with and always very timely. I would highly recommend her for any face / body painting needs.

We were so pleased with Joyful Expressions! Sara Joy was easy to communicate with, arrived early and set up quickly. She was great with the kids at the party and had a very professional presence. We definitely recommend her services for face painting!

Marcela is very talented. We hired her for my son's second birthday party-- Star Wars theme. She not only nailed every Star War character request but also every other request ranging from Sponge Bob, Power Rangers, unicorns, butterflies, to sports logos. All the kids were ecstatic and all the adults were impressed. There were quite a few adults in the face painting line. I highly recommend Fascinating Face and Body Painting

We had our company picnic this past Saturday. We had Roxiis Face Painting come out and do some face painting. Roxii was great not only with the kids but the adults too. All of her face paintings were awsome. We will definately have her back again next year.

Our experience with Lisa and SmileyOrca has been incredible. I have three kids plus two nieces, and every time we visit the Boardwalk, the fair, or festivals in our area, we visit Smiley Orca. They always welcome us with a smile. I love it how they treat each child with respect and give them time to pick their choice of design. Lisa is so wonderful with the kids, she is friendly, loving, and patient. In one occasion, my youngest niece wanted a design that lisa did not have on her folder. For Lisa that was not an issue, she immediately started working on it just by glancing over at my niece's sweater. The design was beautiful and my niece was very happy. It was as if Lisa had painted that design many times before. We love Lisa so much that during my last pregnancy she painted my belly. During my other pregnancies I never had my belly painted, but Lisa mentioned that she would love to do it for me. I was a little hesitant at first, but after talking more about it I felt comfortable and excited. I did not know what I wanted, and mentioned that I liked butterflies. When lisa was done with my design, I was amazed of how beautiful it was. I loved it so much, could not have asked for something better. My first and last belly painting was an amazing experience thanks to Lisa. Bottom line, we love her, she makes us happy Every time we visit her. And best of all she has an amazing husband, son and daughter that work with her and who are just as talented, professional, loving, respectful, playful, and awesome as she is.

I hired Paint this Face for my daughter's 6 yr birthday party. Kerith arrived early and was completely set up before the party the guests arrived. She brought in all of her own equipment and required no help from me setting up, which made ensuring my other details were ready for the party very easy. She required no more instruction that where she should set up. She uses safe, non-toxic products of the highest quality. She dressed in a fun costume to match the fairy theme of the party. She was very good at talking to the kids and accommodating their needs. She is great with children. She painted over 30 faces! Her designs are gorgeous. She can paint just about anything and her details are beautiful. My daughter never wanted to wash the rainbow unicorn off her face! I feel lucky to have been able to book her as Kerith's level of artistry is far and away a higher level that any other face painters I've seen. I highly recommend hiring this company.

Shelley Capovilla has been hired at a few wineries I've attended. The kids love having their face painted by her because each face is a new canvas and each painting an original work of art. Since she takes her time and paints amazing works of art, the line sometimes can get a little long, but it's well worth the wait. If your kids (or adults) like face painting or henna tattoos, they'll love Shelley's-Style.com/

    We first saw Cassie’s Work at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival where she painted my daughter’s face. It was so beautiful that I knew we had to have her come to paint faces at my daughter’s 4th birthday party. Cassie did a wonderful job getting the children to warm up to her and relax, and her designs were just wonderful! The theme of the party was Hello Kitty, and Cassie painted so many half-face Hello Kitty masks that she probably could see them in her sleep! I can’t say enough good things about Cassie...professional communication, punctual and such a joy to be around. 5-stars!

      Lynn is one of the nicest face painters you could hope to hire for your next party. She is professional, trust worthy, caring and easy to work with. Her art work is impressive and she uses the best professional supplies available. She continually up dates her skills with classes each year. Smiley Orca Face Painting recommends Lynn's Amazing Face Paintings when we are fully booked and our clients need a good face painter in the Gilroy, CA area.

      The Party Animals arrived on time, set up & started painting faces right away. The kids loved their face paints & some of the adults did too. Once everyone had their face painted it got crazy & there wasn't much time left for any games, so the Party Animals graciously helped pick up garbage from the back yard and around the house. It was a great help and a wonderful experience. I'm a happy mom who actually got to enjoy the party instead of entertain everyone. Thanks, guys!

      About

      I am a responsible business owner who carries a $2 million liability policy and uses only the best high-end vegan hypo-allergenic FDA approved face paints and ultra-fine polyester glitters. The high pigmentation in these paints results in bright colorful images that pop. Volunteers and many other professional face painters don’t invest the in high cost of using premium brushes and products. This results in inferior quality in the color of their images and possible safety issues. Since Face Painting has become an International phenomena, I stay up-to-date doing daily online research as to the newest and best styles, techniques, tools and products recommended by the top face painters and Face Painting Instructors in the world. I also stay up-to-date on the latest popular characters in children's movies and television. I take pride in every image that I paint and try to make each slightly original for that person. After a few years in business, face painters often become complacent and their artwork becomes stagnant. I never want to stop learning, improving and striving to be the best in my artistic category. List of Venues: Los Altos Fall Festival, San Jose Harvest Festival 2017, Whole Foods Market Los Altos, Redwood City Home for the Holidays, Whole Foods Market Redwood City, San Carlos Breakfast with Santa, Diddam's Party Store - Mountain View, The Redwoods International Montessori Pre-School and Kindergarten in Redwood City. The Redwoods International Montessori Pre-School and Kindergarten in San Ramon, San Carlos Night of Holiday Lights, San Mateo Central Park Ice Rink, Fundraiser for Northern California Fire Victims, Family House San Francisco Halloween Party, Facebook Halloween/Day of the Dead Festival 2017 and Hiller Museum Family Noon Years Eve Party (1,500 attended). These events have all been extremely successful with a couple of my clients calling my work "awesome".
