Well fans, it has been a while! I guess the longer you are a face painter (6.5 years now!) the less new designs you come up with. But the holidays are always interesting because when you haven’t painted a whole group of designs in a year they always feel new, and you keep re-evaluating. So here we go… the new holiday designs for 2016 are on the board!
I had a great time at this years festivals, and would like to thank everyone who came to get painted by me. I had the honor of being a part of the Cleveland Asian Festival, the Cuyahoga Falls Riverfront Irish Festival and the Cuyahoga Falls Festa Italiana. Great times!
I’m normally terrible at taking photos while I work, but made a special effort this past weekend and got to capture happy customers! I can’t wait to paint you all again next summer!
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!
Hello again fans! Sorry it has been a while since my last post… My New Years resolution was to work less, so I’ve been trying to do that! As with any resolution, it seems to be fading the farther into the year I get!
So anyway, this weekend was the Cleveland Comic Con! Did any of you get to attend? Not only did I go and cosplay, but my husband was set up with a booth selling comic books. It was a crazy busy weekend for us both, let me tell you! Then on top of that I had the honor of painting at the Playbouse Square Jump Back Ball Saturday night. What an amazing party!
So here are a few photos from my crazy weekend… I had a blast, but it’ll be a week before my feet recover!
Gearing up for my annual Holiday parties the next few weekends. I never seem to have alot of gigs in December, mainly because everyone has parties at the same time! But I always love trying to come up with a few new designs to change things up. Enjoy!
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!

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!
For those who aren’t familiar with the face painting world, FABAIC (the Face & Body Art International Convention) is THE face painting convention in the United States, and I had the pleasure of attending this year! It was AMAZING!!! Several hundred face and body painters from around the world, all in one room! Here are just a few of my photos from the event.
My favorite thing I learned at the convention was painting gothic jewelry. It is SO MUCH FUN to paint! Check these out…
Another new trick I learned at the convention was how to paint graffiti style! Super cool! I need to keep practicing, but I hope this will be hit at festivals.
And the other first for me was entering a face painting competition! I didn’t win, but it was really a rush to compete. I am definitely looking forward to doing it again in the future! The theme was “The Orient Express”.
