About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I make children smile and help make my clients memorable and talked about the next day...does it get any better than that?! I love using my natural talents to make people happy, and welcome the opportunities when kids challenge me to paint things I've never done before!

    We hired Paintertainment for our corporate event last weekend. They did an amazing job! I would HIGHLY recommend them for your next event. The quality of work is outstanding. They are very professional and our artist, Tina, arrived an hour early!

    Paintertainment provided face painting and balloon artistry for my daughter's 5th birthday. The artist was very patient with the children and very skilled - she ended up being the highlight of the party, even more than the bounce house! The face painting was absolutely gorgeous and the balloons went far beyond your typical balloon animals -- multiple colors, multiple balloons, faces, eyes, etc. Worth every penny for my daughter's special day!!!

    Our company had two each for face painters, balloon artists, and caricature artists. Every person was great! They seemed to enjoy the day and engaged the people with whom they interacted - adults and kids. As a planner, it was fun to provide activities that families might not experience due to cost. I highly recommend using their services.

    Gretchen came to my 9 year-old daughter's birthday party and she was a big hit with the kids. She is an excellent face painter and a pleasure to work with. I would use her services again and highly recommend her to others!

    Gretchen was great to work with and an absolute hit with all of the kids at our son's 4th birthday party. I'd highly recommend her for any type of face or body painting work. And we look forward to having her back at future parties for our kids. Such a fun addition to the party mix!


How did you get started doing this type of work?
Painting has come natural for me since childhood, coming from an artistic family. I began face painting in high school and continued to pay my way through college, and currently enjoy the flexibility it gives me as a work-from-home mom of two boys!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do many, many birthday parties! I also have done many large corporate, school, church and daycare events, as well as county fairs and city festivals. In addition, I offer private sessions for moms-to-be looking to get their baby bump painted, and those preparing for a costume party or play! The possibilities are endless!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you hire a legitimate registered business, who carries insurance, and uses only products that are FDA approved for use on skin! And of course, a natural talent is a MUST!
