Introduction: Hi! I'm Athena Aldoroty. I have two degrees in Art and design. I have been in the field for thirty years and a face painter for fifteen. I truly love to draw, paint and create new designs... Because of my background in Art. I am a true Artist. I don't use makeup. I use traditional Face paint and Brushes. I am very detail oriented and appreciate quality work! ♡♡ I do offer a special full face design (of their choosing) for the birthday child. (as long as child will be able to sit for 5-10 minutes depending on design) ♡♡ I love the expression on a child's face when I'm finished! When they hold the mirror and don't let go and just smile and smile! That's what makes it all worth while! ** One hour = 10-12 small/ medium face/arm or 6 full face designs. Glitter tattoos may be an added time concern... ☆ I live in Orange county, NY. ☆ So, I do require a 3 hour minimum for any requests in the 5 bureaus of Manhattan, Long Island, Connecticut or Pennsylvania (plus travel expenses). ☆ New Jersey (75 min distance) or Dutchess, Sullivan and Rockland counties are 2 hours (plus travel expenses) or if an hour is all you need, than I will raise my rate to $125 instead of $110/hr. Thank you. ** ♡ I am very concerned over my customers health and well being and take the proper safety measures necessary. Besides wearing a face covering, I'll have a solution of antibacterial soap and water to constantly keep brushes clean. I will sanitize my hands after each face painting and keep sanitary wipes and hand sanitizer on the table. I'd appreciate children to follow the 6 foot rule and come to the table one at a time until I'm ready for the next child to paint. Thank you. ♡

Face Painting

Athena was amazing! We were hosting a community party on Halloween day. Athena arrived early and set up an amazing tent with over four pages of designs for the kids to pick from! I’ve never seen a face painter with so many designs. Athena was able to do designs on all of the kids who wanted one. They looked great ranging from spooky scary, to pretty and artistic. There was something for every single kid. Athena was super easy to work with and had a really fun winning personality that all the kids loved to. I can’t wait to work with her again soon for our next community event.

Thank you so much Zach for your kind words! It was absolutely my pleasure. Glad I got to paint all the children with the designs they requested, and everyone had a great time!! Hope to work with you again soon! 😊

Face Painting

Athena was the highlight of my sons birthday party! Everyone felt comfortable with her and she took all appropriate covid safety protocols. She confirmed with me day before and even brought her own table and chair to set up. Plently of artwork for kids to choose from including glitter and she had stand up large photos to see choices. Very patient as some children were only around 2 years. Would 100% hire again! In fact i had to ask her for business cards because every mom at the party wanted her info! Thanks again Athena!

Face Painting

Athena was right on time and had her equipment set up and immediately started to paint the children. The quality of Athenas' face painting was excellent and the children really liked her out going personality. All the children were really happy with the care she showed toward the children. I also heard a lot of complements from the parents. I would recommend Athena for your next occasion.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Birthday parties, Communions, Graduations, Christmas and Office Parties.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    How dedicated I am to my work. If a customer is not pleased then I go back an re-do it until they are. If they still aren't satisfied then I apologize and refund them. This rarely happens and in large parties it never happens.
