Hello there lovely people! Today I wanted to share a few new pictures with you that have just made it into my repertoire. It’s not always easy to find little models to paint fancy designs on, but every once in a while I get lucky and find some adorable kids happy to be painted. Other times, I’m working out new designs on my own mug, which don’t look nearly as cute in photos. My cats are so used to seeing me in face paint it doesn’t even faze them! Here are a few of my most recent designs… hopefully I’ll get to paint one of them on you soon!
I had the privilege of painting for a family reunion yesterday where the theme was definitely Love. I painted about a dozen designs all honoring Vivian, the family matriarch who passed away this year. It was beautiful to see how many adults and children wanted their paintings to pay tribute to their mother and grandmother. Here are just a few of the designs I painted…
I hope the family enjoyed my paintings as much as I did… the photos will make a touching addition to their family scrapbooks.
Hello friends! I have a princess themed birthday party on my schedule soon and so I decided this weekend I would work on my princess crowns. There are so many different ways to paint a “crown” but sometimes on the spot my mind draws a blank. So here are 4 new versions for the girls to choose from. Enjoy!
P.S… next week for sure I’ll be working on new BOY designs!
Hello summer party people! Well the busy season has officially begun and my calendar is filling up quickly with all sorts of great face painting goodness! I’ve got birthday parties, block parties, company parties, graduation parties and some plain ‘ol just for the fun of it parties! Are you looking for some colorful additions to your summer bash? Give me a call!
In the meantime, here are a few photos from last weekend… I had some great picks of some old favorites I haven’t painted in a while and even a few new requests. Most importantly, good times were had by all. 🙂
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!
Whenever I am painting away at birthday parties or family functions and have a gaggle of children around me watching intently as I transform their friends, I am constantly being asked “how did you learn to paint so well?” And my reply is always the same… “I practice all the time… the only way you get good at anything is to practice over and over again!” It’s true for everyone and everything… we all start at the beginning. And as much as I would like to only show you my perfect pictures and designs I’ve spent extra time on to get them just right, I think maybe it’s important to show you some of my practice work as well. Hopefully soon I’ll have more pictures of these designs, done on real faces in the real word, and hopefully they’ll be even better!
Here are a few photos of some new designs and techniques I learned at a recent face painting workshop, taught by an artist far more superior than me, because even professionals still have to practice. 🙂
Here are a few of the designs I painted at a local birthday party the other night. Lots of tropical flowers… probably wishful thinking considering it was snowing outside!
I’ve had some fun lately trying out new designs inspired by some other fantastic face painters from around the world! Here are my versions of some fantastic designs thought up by people I admire…
