Introduction: I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and if I can see it, I can draw it! I do customized boards for the theme of the party, I do all of the superheros, I have homemade bling for all the princesses, and a large assortment of glitter tattoos!

I highly recommend hiring Sharon for your next party! She came early to set up, had impressive equipment and stayed as long as we had interested people. She was excellent with the kids (and even painted some adults). Her work was gorgeous and she even has jewels and glitter tattoos. 10/10!

Details: 21 - 40 guests • 4 - 6 years old • Younger than 4 years old • 18 or older • Birthday party • Glitter tattoos

Wow! All our expectations were exceeded with Sharron. She came through for us last minute and worked with our budget. Sharron made sure every kid (and some adults) were face painted and satisfied! The artwork was absolutely beautiful. As soon as Sharron got here, we felt confident and comfortable having her in our home. We will be sure to hire her for every party!!

Details: 11 - 20 guests • Younger than 4 years old • 4 - 6 years old • 7 - 10 years old • Birthday party • Glitter tattoos

She did fantastic work and stayed to make sure everyone had an opportunity to have their face (or arms) painted to their liking.

Shes amazing. She came out for facepainting for my daughters 5th birthday party. A lot more kids showed up. She stayed until every kid who wanted face painting got it. She did excellent work. Kids were so happy and so were parents. Amazing job!!

Sharon was incredible, the face painting was the hit of the party! She is extremely talented and was great with the kids. She offered many different options and would pretty much do whatever the kids asked for. I would definitely use her again and will be recommending her to my friends! A job very well done!

The pleasure was all mine! The kids were so cute and patient, and I was able to do full faces, cheek and arm art. Each kid had a unique design, no two were alike! That was the best part for me! I felt like I was able to capture each child's personality, and as an artist, I can't ask for anything more! Your family was warm and to get the opportunity to work for clients like you, well, what can I say...it was totally a day of passion. All your friends were so nice as well! I have a feeling our paths will cross again! Thank you for the opportunity!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate varies according to how many faces I will paint and the time parameters. I am competitive in my rates as I try to work within the clients budget. However I do have a minimum rate of $250 for two hours, I do stay longer, but after 3 hours it’s an additional $100. But most importantly, I am fully insured. That being said, I do not like to turn down parties as I love what I do. I use FDA approved face paint and I design my own bling to use in my designs. I even use feathers for Tweety and other characters! And of course what face would be complete without glitter!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always inquire about the ages of the children, if the party has a theme, and I then create a style board with options. I aim to please...if I can see it, I can draw it!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I had my first show in 4th grade!
