      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        I charge an hourly rate between $75-$125 an hour. It depends on number of people, distance, and type of service. Cheek art is less than half or full face painting. Please be aware every party is different. It takes longer times for younger children (5 under than over 5 years old. I am flexible with my time, but if more time is needed there will be an additional rate added. If extra time is needed client will be made aware before any additional charges are made. It will be mutually agreed upon.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        I like to be thorough and give my customers all the info they need about my services. I also like to get as much info like bday child name, things they like, etc... I want to make it personal. I will confirm on the phone a few days before the date so client will know I am coming. I arrive early so I have enough time to set up and start on time.I wear a cute costume and have tons of designs to choose from!
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        I went to college for art, but to really be in your chosen "art" it takes talent, lots of practice, and always pushing yourself to do your best.
