Raven is a true artist, not just a face painter. I hired Raven for our son's adoption party and she was a HUGE hit! She did the full face painting (e.g., Spiderman or the Hulk), half face (e.g., butterfly around the eyes and nose) or a small picture (e.g., lion on the cheek or hand). The best part was the artistry of her creations, closely followed by her speed. We had a lot of young children who don't sit still for too long, so it was great how quickly she could do an elaborate design. Also, unlike a lot of other face painters who give you a few designs to chose from, Raven would do anything you wanted, from original-themed superhero logos to a half-mask owl. And they all looked awesome! I also appreciated Raven's willingness to stay longer than our originally agreed upon time when more children showed up than we expected. Her flexibility was wonderful and truly helped make our event a success. Overall, I'd gladly hire Raven again and wholeheartedly recommend her to others. You won't be disappointed!
Char painted gorgeous portraits of my son and daughter. Every time someone new visits my home they rave over the portraits. Char is passionate about art and she was a perfectionist in ensuring that the portraits were just right, down to the last details!
I met Jody a couple of years ago and we quickly became friends and began working together. I was primarily a portrait painter, and he primarily a landscape painter. We combined styles and began doing collaboration paintings which can be seen on Fine Art America- Surreal World. We continue working together as time permits. I would highly recommend Jody as a painting instructor as he is very prolific and versatile.
Quite satisfied. Very capable, reasonable, a little unconventional, but hey, he's an artist.
Brandy is a good friend of mine. She has done a pencil drawing of my son and myself in two separate pictures. The detail in these drawing is awsome down to the freckles on my sons face. They are just beautiful, I love them. She has also painted two pictures for me that are absolutely beautiful. They are landscape pictures: one is a mountain scene with a waterfall pouring into a lake with the sun setting, the other is a scene that you might see if you were walking in the mountains on a trail. It has mountains in the background a lake in the distance with a small waterfall between the trees leading into another body of water. The detail in the trees and everything else is amazing. I haven't seen anything that she can't do: animals, landscape, flowers, people it doesn't matter I think she is awsome.
I can help you improve your drawing and painting ability. Its important to have someone passionate to appraise your work.

My paintings are of superior quality. This is shown by the fact that I am asked to donated original paintings and pottery pieces to events that raise money for 501(c) 3 organizations. I am usually happy to donate. Not only because my name becomes more visible but I believe everyone should be willing to give back to the community they live in.
