My goal is to provide outstanding service and to make a difference in the lives of others through laughter and art.

I love my job because I get to laugh and create laughter and art for others.

    Denise was on time and ready to work. She arrived with a smile and a pleasant attitude. She was great with the kids and parents waiting in line to get their faces painted. The face painting she did had great quality and done in a very timely manner. The event was made better by having her there. We will definitely look at hiring her for future events.

    Denise was terrific. We hired her for our preschool's Fall Fest. She arrived on time and ready to work. Her talent is amazing & every child walked away happy. Most importantly, she is a very friendly and happy person. She was great with the kids!!

    Ms. Denise has done face painting and balloon making for both of my boys. We have known her for about 6 years now. They absolutely love her. It is great to see the way that she interacts with her customers. She is very kind and professional with everything she does. I would recommend her services to everyone!

    Denise made my daughters third birthday a most magical event! She arrived at the time we had arranged and was in full costume and character for the children. I thought it was perfect so that the kids really "believed" she was a true pirate visiting for our party! She began engaging the children right away and a line quickly formed for them all to receive their face painting masterpieces. I have seen plenty of face painting at theme parks and events but none can compare to Denise's artistic talent! While face painting she paid careful attention to what each child chose and made them feel comfortable by engaging them with conversation. Denise opened her magical pirate chest after the face painting was complete and I was amazed with how well the children gathered around and sat in silence awaiting to see what she had planned. She truly had each child's complete attention and told an amazing story with my little birthday girl as the star. The story was complete with props from the treasure chest and she made it so much fun for all (even the adults couldn't break their gaze!) She even surprised all the children with balloon swords and magic wands! Denise is complete quality and we couldn't be happier with her services! I am so looking forward to Denise entertaining at our next birthday party for my twin girls in March next year! They are already asking for her and it's 6 months away! I would say she made quite the impression on all of us!

    Denise Hall is a superb artist on so many levels. Sculpter, painter, Face painter, Singer, storyteller, performing artist, commedienne, stage Hypnotist. She was visiting my area and I asked her if she would mind helping paint faces at a large event I was working. I told the children, she was a special teacher who teaches fairies to paint faces, and that she was a much better painter than me. In about ten minutes a little girl came up to me and said, "You are right, Pink Fairy! Miss Denise IS a Much better painter than you! " Even the little ones love her artistry.

    I have been utilizing the art and talent of Denise Hall for many years now and she consistently goes above and beyond what my expectations are of her. From developing new characters for annual clients to pushing herself to learn new face painting techniques by going to classes to further develop her art. Not only is she an amazing performer and artist striving to be the best she can be but she is also a friend that I can count on when I am in need to assist me in being the best that I can be as well. I highly recommend Denise for any event that are looking for someone to help them look great!

    Our company, Power Point3 Inc, was a major sponsor for Chocolate Sunday at Ruth Eckerd Hall in February. It was a standing room sellout success. We hired Denise to paint our model, Jessie in chocolate. Jessie was posed on red velvet atop a ebony baby grand piano. Denise painted amazing flourished designs in various colors of pure chocolate. Denise and our model were major attraction at the event getting attention not only from the attendees but the media also. This was a perfect for our brand and marketing theme of "The Sweet Taste of Success." Jewel McKeon, Founder & President


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As an artist I am always continuing my education. I have taught at the Face and Body Art convention in Orlando Florida and I have been student there too. I gather with other artists to share and create new work. I take art classes outside of the art to stimulate new ideas. I am a member of some groups online to keep up with the newest trends in face and body art.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always loved performing whether I was making people laugh or inspiring them with a song. I love to play, laugh and make great memories. So becoming a professional clown, a comedy hypnotist, a character performer, a face artist was just another step in expressing myself as an artist.
What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common jobs? I don't think I have a common anything. But within the realm of uncommon, I frequently paint faces at events and children's birthday parties. I have painted at clothing optional resorts, I have painted Pirates for Gasparilla, I have painted a models for fashion shows, dancers for shows and with chocolate for performance. I perform comedy hypnosis shows across the country for all kinds of corporations, schools and festivals along with library shows across the state. See what I mean about common?
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When hiring any kind of performing artist, ask lots of questions. Ask for references. Ask to see examples of their work. If painting, ask how many kids they can paint in an hour. Ask what kind of paint they use. Ask what kind of glitter. Ask how long they have been performing, are they full time. Ask what kind of training they have had. Ask a performer what they love about their work. Are they insured, professionals will carry insurance. After you have asked all the questions, trust your gut.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish customers knew that every time I go out I want to make a difference for them, to make their lives just a little better..and mine too. I try to give them more than they are expecting and a great memory. I want them to know that this is not a hobby, it is how I make my living. I want them to know there is a difference in performers. If you want to pay K-mart prices you will get K-mart quality. But don't expect to get Nordstrom quality at K-mart prices. I want them to know that it may seem we make a lot of money in a short amount of time. But consider, we have had to invest in training, props, gas ( gas!!!!) costumes, supplies, paint, balloons, licencing, insurance (the good ones will have this),and more. Remember that while we are full time, parties and events mosly happen on the weekends and we do not work 40 hours a week at a 100.00 an hour. ( I wish) When it all comes down we make a very reasonable wage. Having said the above, your tips make a difference. If you think the performer has done an outstanding job tell them, tell your friends and give them a tip that matches the value you place on joy they have just given you.
