Carl did a great job! The kids loved it and his work was incredible! Hire him if you are looking for a face painter!
Watching Carl work you can tell he enjoys making little girls into princesses and little boys into heroes. He has extreme patience with the little kids, never seems to get tired or always seems to be having good humor and fun with them.
Excellent, excellent, excellent! Carl's face painting talent is amazing...a true work of art. He's great with kids. Carl provided face painting at our annual Haunted Hayride. From butterflies to skeletons, he did it all. All smiles from kids & adults alike. Highly recommended!
With three young kids I see face painting at lots of events. Carl is the best. Amazing results and not too slow for impatient kids.

joy and wonder. childrens faces lighting up with surprise and excitement. the transformative process is a wonder to behold.
If you are looking for a fun activity for your children's special day, fundraiser, carnival, corporate event or expo, then this is it. Adults are welcome to join in on the fun, be it game day, office party, celebrations or product placement body painting. I have also done some fun work on very pregnant bellies.
Having a life long artistic leaning refined with a degree in illustration from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, I have been facepainting for years with great results. I have an extensive list of large and small murals, and illustrations, with literally dozens of commissioned art assignments.
I have a large library of designs and stencils but if you have something unusual in mind, please bring reference material. I have done scores of adults and children, leaving them happy. I can usually get a child done in five minutes with a simple design, ten minutes for a full face... everything depends on how much detail you would like.
I am a father of 3, and my 14-year-old boy is on the autism spectrum, so I have experience working with special needs children. I am very good with kids and will probably bring my 13 year-old girl as a helper. She also is very good with children, and has become a semi-skilled painter herself.
During the summer months I am co-owner a drive-in restaurant in Hortonville, Charlie's Drive-in and we are enjoying our 48th year in this 2013. During the fall and winter I am available for unlimited face painting but would be able to schedule summer or spring events with a couple weeks notice.
My gear fits in a large tackle box and the only supplies I would need on your side would be a couple chairs and a surface. I can do most kinds of painting and am available for a wide range of artwork. I have also been commissioned to do appearances as Elvis. Prices negotiable on that.
Additional Booking Notes
my face painting supplies fit in a small duffle or tackle box. all i would need on your side are two chairs and a table top.
as an observer, you will marvel at the size of my bladder. have gone nine hours without a bathroom break, or a break of any kind. i consider this performance art by itself but the act of doing decent face painting draws a crowd , too.
Influences & Inspiration
there are many great face painters but my art is influenced by robert longo, robert williams, robert crumb, clive barker. seems to be a robert theme...
2 chairs and a table top.
