New Spring Things

Happy Summer!  (Finally!)  Now that it’s hot and humid it’s time for all the fun festivals and outdoor activities.  I’m excited to be a part of three amazing festivals this year…  The Cleveland Asian Festival, which was in May.  And the upcoming Cuyahoga Falls Irish Riverfront Festival and Cuyahoga Falls Festa Italiana.  Fun Fun!!!

So here are a few new designs I cooked up this spring.  It’s always good to add new ideas to the board, especially for festivals where I get alot of repeat clients each year!  I hope to see you out at one this summer!

It’s Pumpkin Spice Face Painting Season!

OK, so face painting doesn’t actually taste or smell like pumpkin, but it is officially fall and that means FALL FESTIVAL SEASON is here!  As much as I love summer, I do love switching up my board of options for the fall… painting the same summertime favorites a million times gets a little boring.  But now it’s all new… check out these fun options and come get painted in your favorite at one of my upcoming festivals!

Not so cuddly…

Hello face paint fans!  Well it’s officially September and the summer is still hanging around.  I don’t know about you, but this summer has been CRAZY!  I wish I took the time to take more photos at events, but alas, I’m usually too busy to do it.  But I have managed to try a few new things lately that I thought you might like… these are the less than snuggly animals we all love.  Enjoy!

Spring Fever!

It’s FINALLY SPRING!!!  Oh man, that winter was a rough one.  I had a hard time getting motivated to try anything new when it hurt just to leave my house.  But now that the weather has broken I got the spring cleaning bug… and I don’t mean for my house!  Nope, time to clean up my business cards, banners, signage and marketing!  And to do that I needed to paint some seriously awesome new stuff.  So here you go… the latest, and definitely some of my greatest, works!  Plus a few behind the scenes sneak peeks for you!

Big thanks to my friend Kimberly for loaning her kids to me and their friends.  We had a fun day and the kids were a blast!

Brand Spankin’ New – #1

Happy Spring!  I’m coming up on my 4 year face painting anniversary, and while I have grown alot professionally and artistically over the years, I think it’s finally time to upgrade my designs and setup.  Over the next month or two I will be on a mission to get new designs in my book in time for the summer.  My current list of new things to paint is up to 63, but lord knows that number keeps going up!  So here is just the first set of updated and brand new designs I’ll be offering up to my clients… enjoy!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

My happy thoughts are a tad belated, but I do hope you had a fun day being Irish!  I had fun painting lots of people of all ages, and got some great photos to share.  Hopefully I’ll be painting YOU green next year!

ENJOY!

Prepping for St. Paddy’s Day!

It might still be mostly white in Cleveland, but in 10 short days everyone will be thinking GREEN!

Everyone is Irish on Saint Patricks Day, so why not get yourself painted by yours truly and show off that Irish pride!  I am excited to announce that I will be painting faces at Mavis Winkles in Independence again this year!  Come out for a full day of festivities, Irish food, and face painting!  Plus they will be offering shuttle service downtown starting at 11 am if you want to go see the parade, but don’t want to deal with the crazy traffic and hefty parking fees!

Mavis Winkles is located at 5005 Rockside Rd, Cleveland, OH 44131
