Introduction: Hi! I'm GG and I'm about to earn you 1,000 cool points. People love having their faces painted! It gives freedom to express themselves, feel extra brave or beautiful, and it's just a lot of fun. My background is in art and working with special needs kids and adults. I've got experience with all types of abilities, and believe that everyone deserves to feel included, special, and loved. My party appearances are about connecting with people and spreading brightness and kindness through paint. All my paints are hypoallergenic, high quality and clean. Sanitary practices are very important for our painted friends, and I take that responsibility seriously as it is a privilege to be able to do this for a living. I'm fully insured, and a proud member of the COAI (Clowns of America International)

Absolutely AMAZING! Our Halloween Pirate Party was a hit thanks to the incredible face painting! Incredible detail, beautiful designs. Pleasant and super with kids. Cannot say enough. Responded to my texts prior to the event within an hour and was so friendly. She truly loves what she does and it shows. All the Moms requested her contact info!!!! Two thumbs up and I cannot give her as many stars as she deserves!!!!😉

I used Cheekies Face Painting for summer events I held and it was AMAZING! The quality is well above what I expected, and she can literally do anything you want! She is very personable, kids love her, and she was always on time. I highly recommend Cheekies!

Gene is an extremely talented face painter who can paint literally anything you could imagine. She works off of references, if needed, and they always come out looking clean, bright, and exactly like the picture! She will make you feel comfortable and she won’t quit until it looks perfect!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I take my job seriously. I'm here to impart love, joy and encouragement for our kids, and help them feel awesome about who they are. The fact that you are welcoming me into your home, life, and these big milestone moments means so much to me. It's not lost on me how hard it is to trust someone with our kids, so I take it very seriously. My prices are set due to the training, expertise, insurance I carry protecting your children, and extreme quality in products. To provide quality work takes time, practice and years of honing several skills. It's not smearing paint for money. There is so much more to it. Each of my parties are 2 hours minimum painting time, with additional 30 minutes for sanitation between each friend to ensure I give each face in my chair the most love and attention I can. I only charge for paint time, not time between friends while I clean. To thank you so much for letting me work in such a wonderful way, I offer $25 off to returning customers. I deeply appreciate your support.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The typical birthday process goes like this: 1) You choose Cheekies 2) I get excited 3) You tell me all your specifications (especially allergies or special considerations I need to take) 4) I invoice you/you pay retainer 5) We confirm everything a few days prior 6) I show up with my kit 7) Your birthday kiddo gets a very special painting 8) Everyone else gets painted 9) I clean up my kit and sneak out, leaving sugared-up, brightly painted littles behind 10) You get tons of compliments 11) We nap because parties are exhausting 12) You leave me a review for a great discount on your next booking 13) We book for next year 🥳

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm currently undergoing a course in face and body art by Face Painting International. It's fun, and very challenging. I've spent 15 years working with special needs kids from birth to age 22. I volunteer training service dogs for disabled kids and veterans. These things help greatly in interacting with the huge array of people I meet. I'm currently learning ASL and am signed up to begin Spanish courses this month so I can communicate with more friends. I also spent a term as a soldier medic...I carry an aid bag everywhere I go just in case.
