Introduction
Hello, I'm Mr. Kevin Killian. And I love what I do! I got my start with balloon twisting over 17 years ago. But at that time, I wasn't doing a whole lot with it. I was basically trying to find an easy way to impress women. (No, it did not work.) My talent kept hidden until my wife, Iris, started her facepainting business several years ago. Many people would ask her if she also did balloon twisting. And she tell them, "No." One day, our oldest daughter bought some twisting balloons at the store. Her plan was to help her mom with her business. As she struggled with some of the designs, I stepped in to show her some basic maneuvers. My wife was in shock that I knew how to do it. I guess I forgot to tell her, and she was already in business for 2 years. She was not happy. Oops! So I started to practice more and join in on her facepainting gigs. And it turns out that I have a knack for it! This is currently my fifth year as a professional balloon artist. And the fun just keeps growing! Contact me. You won't be disappointed. My prices displayed are for private party events. For corporate events, I charge a flat $150 per hour. There is a $25 travel fee if your event is longer than 1 hour away. For events that are more than 2 hours away, the travel fee is $50.

I hired Kevin for my son’s 10th birthday party. Kevin and his family did a great job at both balloon twisting and face painting. They came on time and setup everything ahead. All the kids loved it and was the highlight of the party. I would definitely recommend Kevin and His family for your kids next birthday celebration.

Details: Birthday party • 21 - 40 guests • 4 - 6 years old • 7 - 10 years old • 11 - 14 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Detailed balloon art (uses several balloons) • Face painting is needed

If I could give them 10 stars, I would. They were the hit of my daughter's first birthday. We also used his wife, Iris for face painting and the two of them were just fantastic. If you want balloon animals and face painting, look no further and book them! Everyone at the party was raving about them. Highly highly recommend!!!
