Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: My work stands out from others that do what I do because I love what I do and this is my passion. I put as much effort in making a simple cheek butterfly design as to making a full mask butterfly. I am also very responsible and when it comes to dealing with children, I am very, very patient. I enjoy painting in general. But face painting takes the challenge a bit farther because you are painting on a living (and moving) canvas. You have a nose and eyes that you have to take in consideration when painting as opposed of a flat surface. Give me a bit of an extra challenge and throw in a 3 year old, who likes to squiggle and move around a lot when being painted. What does this mean to you? Probably nothing. What this means to me is a huge deal. I can paint a kid in three minutes. When I am done, I feel self accomplished. I have been painting for 5 years. July 2016 starts my 6th year. And since day one, I have gave it my all to these kid's faces. When I see a little girl smile because she feels beautiful when she sees herself in the mirror, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and success as an artist. When I see a little boy roar and scream out his lugs to mimic the sound of a tiger I created on his face, run to his mom to roar and show his imaginary paws... I feel a great joy. It is just a pleasure to do what I do. Kids are the most genuine people on this earth. They will not tell you that they like a painting you did if they do not mean it. That is what I enjoy about the work I do. All the passion involved in it. The love I put into my art.

Karla was AMAZING!! She showed up on time (which we loved), she was great with the kids, and is an amazing artist!! Everyone was very pleased with her work (face painting and balloons) as well as her positive attitude. If we ever need a face painter or balloon artist in the future, we will definitely be contacting her!

I usually don’t write reviews, but I was blown away by this business professional work. I hired them a week before my event. I was franktic because I hired another company and they called to cancel. So I googled for a face painter in my area and found them. The young lady who answered the phone was very professional and easy to talk to. She gave me pricing on the phone without asking so many questions. Sent me an invoice as soon as we hung up as she said she would. The hiring process was very easy. She was able to accommodate my party within a weeks notice. I hired the package with two artists bc we wanted both face painting and balloon animals. Both ladies showed up to my son’s birthday party 10 mins prior their start time. Their set up time was very minimum. They did ask for me to provide a table for them to set up, but she mentioned this on our first phone conversation so we had it ready for when they arrived. They started painting and making balloon animals for the kids right at the time we agreed. They worked for 2 hours non stop. My guest kept commenting on Karla’s amazing face painting. All I heard at my party was how amazing the face painting was! I am not even exaggerating. One of the older kids asked for a parrot and she did it on the spot! It was amazing how much talent she has. Everything the kids would ask for, they would get. I saw tigers, butterfly, unicorns, and she even painted a mike Tyson tattoo on my husband! I saw my adult guest getting painted, that’s how talented she is. I am definitely hiring them again. I believe her sister Lidia (Lydia?) was doing balloons and she had a list for the kids to choose from. I know she did more than one balloon per kid because they were playing outside and they would pop, but she happily made them with no complaints. These two sisters are amazing. They definitely made my party just that more memorable. My guest were asking were I found her! Hire them!!

FAQs

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    The most common jobs I perform are face painting and balloon twisting for birthday parties. I usually have 3 events per day on the weekend and 90% of the time they are face painting and balloon art. I have also been at school festivals, school fundraisers, private parties, 15th birthdays (quinceaneras) and one Sweet 16th birthday. I must say, I really love what I do. It is not a job; it is my passion.
