Josie was a huge success to have for my daughters 1st birthday party. The children loved her face painting and balloon making. Josie is so sweet, she has great communication, and all around is a great addition to have for a party. I will definitely be using her in the near future and recommend her to all.Dec 9, 2019Verified
She was kind, prompt, talented, great with kids and all around a wonderful part of my daughter’s bday party! She painted 30 faces and stayed longer than discussed in order to make every child happy:) Would highly recommend.Apr 1, 2019VerifiedJosephine DaCosta Art & Design-Face Paint by Josie's reply
Thank you so much! It was a lot of fun!
I hired Josie for house warming party ... she came 20 minutes early to the venue , it was a big hit among kids . Her face painting was a highlight in the party... she also did balloon twisting and everything was very nice... She has good skills, lot of patience and very friendly... She even stayed for 25 minutes longer and didn’t charge extra for that .. overall I definitely recommend Josie!Apr 22, 2019Verified
Josie was wonderful, I highly recommend her. It’s no surprise that she has great reviews. She did face painting and balloon twisting for my son’s first birthday yesterday. She was a big hit, the kids loved her! I highly recommend her. She was so easy to work with and wonderful with the kids. She also does beautiful work. I will definitely use her again in the future!Jul 31, 2018Verified
Josephine did an amazing job. She was so good with the kids. Even the little ones that I thought would never let a stranger paint their faces sat for her!! I would hire her again!Sep 23, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge an hourly rate between $100-$150 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.
