I use cosmetic grade non-toxic “paint” that’s safe for all faces. Actually, it’s colorful, water based make-up which comes off easily with soap and water. My costumed characters include: Fairy, Mermaid, Pirate, Mini Mouse, Friendly Clown, Princess and more. I have the best job in the world: painting fun!

What to Expect
I travel all over the San Francisco Bay Area painting fun and twisting balloons at birthday and holiday parties, corporate events and fairs. Naturally silly, I arrive at your party in costume. Characters include: Minnie Mouse, Fairy, Princess, Mermaid, Pirate, Friendly Clown (no white face), Super Hero, Holiday Elf, Harvest Fairy, 4th of July Patriot and more… I also offer games for all ages; perfect for corporate parties, birthday & holiday events.
I use cosmetic grade non-toxic “paint” that’s safe for all faces. Actually, it’s specially formulated, cosmetic grade, water based make-up which comes off easily with soap and water. Wolfe Brothers and Kryolan are two of my favorite brands.
I’m fastidious about cleanliness, and very careful not to paint near the eyes of wiggly children. I use disposable applicators for lip color. Always sensitive to the youngster’s needs, I simplify designs if there’s a long line of kids waiting and take more time for details if there isn’t.
I’ve been face painting professionally since 2008. Parties are my favorite places to paint and kids between the ages of three and ten are my biggest fans. I’m not ageist though – everyone is welcome to have something painted on them. Teens and adults especially enjoy eye bling, airbrush and glitter tattoos. Toddlers are often happy to have a hand painted, even if they don’t want anyone messing with their face.
I’m an experienced performer and improviser. I’ve trained intensively with Bay Area Theatresports in San Francisco, and was a member of their “Sunday Players” troupe for three years.
When I’m not face painting I twist balloons or use media to help small business people tell their stories.
Additional Booking Notes
I only require a well-lit area in the shade.
