NEO Face Painters Guild

Did you know that besides just being a professional face painter, I am also the Vice President of the North East Ohio Face Painters Guild, which is a professional organization of face painters in this region.  We meet every month on the first Wednesday of the month at the Home Town Buffet in Parma, near the corner of Snow rd. and Broadview rd.  This is a way for me to network with other painters, share tips and tricks, and also take some time to practice new designs.  And as a bonus to you… we paint the patrons of the restaurant for FREE from 5:30 – 7:30 each time we’re there.  Mark your calendars for next month and come in for dinner and get the kiddos painted!

Here are a few of the new designs I worked on at our February meeting…

Chinese New Year Designs

I’ve been working on new designs specifically for the Chinese New Year Festival I’m painting at today.  Come see me from 11-5 at the Asian Town Center located at 3820 Superior Ave., Cleveland, OH 44114.  There’s entertainment all day long with dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, the traditional Lion Dance and fireworks!  Try some yummy food and get your face painted by me!  See you there!

So much to Share!!

I know this site has been boring the last month or so, but I’ve been a busy little painter bee!  I spent all last week at a Face Painting Convention, learning new tricks and designs!  I had an AMAZING time and met so many cool new people, and learned SOOOO MUCH!  I got a few new paints to play with too!  I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on, so without further adieu…

My New Years Eve look….

My Fiancee’s NYE look…

And here’s a close up because it’s just too cool to not get a better view…

This is just a sampling of new paintings… there’s plenty more to come!

Halloween 2011 – Part 2

Well it is the day after the saturday before Halloween…. or in other words “Adult Halloween”!  Yet again I had some awesome clients and fun makeup requests throughout the day.  We had fun making magic and I hope everyone had a blast last night!   Check out my creations…

First up, this lovely feline which was my first head to toe body painting!  She was a sexy tiger, and looked AMAZING when I was done.  I can’t post all the pics, since this is a family friendly page, but yes, the stripes go all the way down.  😉

Next up: Zombie #1.  You may recognize him as my skull from last week.  This time he was rockin the rotting and lovin the gore.  I love guys that are into paint!

A lovely Masquerade mask…

A cool Mime… wish I had gotten a pic with her fun hat on.

Frankenstien’s Monster #1 (what a great idea!)

A cute elderly Zombie couple… (they even had a walker!!)

And last but not least, my personal favorite… Frankenstein and his Bride!
(I wish I had thought to get a side shot of my hair… it was standing about 8″ off the back of my head!)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!  I can’t wait to see what challenges you come up with for me next year!!

 

Pretty Painted Things…

Here are a few of my recent paintings, a little more pretty this time.  Not everyone wants blood and guts at halloween time!

Ok… and one more that’s not as much pretty as pretty darn cute!!!

Happy Birthday Ethan!

I had a great time last week painting for lucky birthday boy Ethan, who requested to be a zombie!  It was  super fun party with great kids who were all smiles.  🙂

Recent Works

I just thought I’d share some new photos with you… two new designs and some other favorites from todays gig.  Enjoy!

First, a new design!  A super cute ELEPHANT in honor of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s new African Elephant Crossing Exhibit.  Isn’t he just the sweetest!

Next, I’m super excited to share some fun HORNS!  This dad was a great sport and let me paint him some sweet head gear.

And now some of the happy Wadsworth Walmart shoppers.  🙂

Pretty Little Things

I’ve finally had some time to practice, and have new photos to share!  Some new, some old, some quick and some bold!

In this design, I’ve switched up the way I paint rainbows.  This is so much more fun and organic, but still super quick!
Rainbow Painting

This was a quick late night painting for my niece, who really wanted to be a kitty before she went home… poor girl was going to have to wash it off before bed!  I pulled inspiration from her shirt, and tried to keep the paint to the easy to wash places.  🙂

Here is another late night painting… she wanted at seaside painting but not on her face… and this one she can sleep in!

Here is a birthday Butterfly Princess… so adorable!

Have you ever seen a talking dinosaur?

I love painting designs that “talk”!  Here is a great one, that I just realized I never posted here or put in my book!  I’ll have to make a post one day of all my talking animals for you to see… they are super fun!

“What you lookin at?”

“I said SAY OFF MY LAWN!”

“CHEESE!!!”
