Artful Body: Enhancing beauty through art!




What a wonderful experience! I hired Artful Body for my daughter's 5th birthday party for face painting, glitter tatoos, etc. We had Kaylee come to our home to entertain 7 children, and how very impressed we were. She was there early to set up, was wonderful with all the children, very personable yet professional, gave great ideas to the kids & adults (yes, us adults joined in the fun getting glitter tatoos, too), and extended her stay when we requested because we were all having so much fun. We will definitely be booking with Artful Body again whether it be for children or adult fun in the middle of the winter. :) I would highly recommend this company for your party needs. A special thanks to Lynne for reaching out to us when at next to last minute, we had given up on finding a company to do the party. They are the best!!!

Review by Kenneth D.

Our small casino hosted a convention for science fiction, comic and fantasy fans. We hired in Artful Body at the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. They painted full bodies to fit the theme with different designs each day. There was also an artist who was in a booth painting clients all day long. Both artists and the model were very professional, enthusiastic and went out of their way to make clients happy.
During the event we had to move their full body art station to increase the flow of traffic, which meant taking down all of their materials and set-up, moving and setting up again. They cooperated fully, smiling as they did. The Artful Body crew is extremely easy and comfortable to work with, which as an event planner is so important.
We were very impressed with their knowledge, safety and artistry.

We had Lynne and her husband come down to our mini-golf course to decorate the college students coming back for the semester. They did henna and glitter tattoos. Even after 3 hours there were still lines of kids wanting their art. They were incredibly popular, very friendly and most kids would get a henna and then a glitter tattoo. We're looking forward to having them come back again this year.

We had a field days event at our school. Artful Body artists were professional, great with the kids, speedy and a lot of fun. They did a great job and were a bargain for what they offered.

Review by Brian H.

The owner of Artful Body came out personally. She was entertaining, amazing with the kids and so much fun. Everyone loved her art so much that we paid her to stay an extra hour so that everyone could get more. We originally hired her for the kids but the adults ended up being decorated too. We'd not hesitate to hire them again, for anything.

Artful Body

Founded in 2002 after years of learning and practicing the arts of body decoration, beginning with henna, we have traveled the US, Canada and Europe decorating faces and bodies as well studying the newest products, latest techniques in the quest to bring you the best, latest and safest art available.

Regulars at festivals and Renaissance Faires, we've enjoy awards such as the Best Booth (Virginia Ren Faire), Fan Favorite Artist for our henna (Cairo Art Festival) and Children's Choice Award for face painting (Melbourne Community Festival).

In 2009 we were particularly honoured to offer a fashion show of full body paintings for the REAF Festival in Rochester, NY. 12 models took to the stages to model unique and original "clothing" creations of paint with great success and acclaim.
