I face paint for all types of event: birthdays, costume parties, festivals, Halloween parties, block parties, church events, mardi gras, family reunions, etc. I have college experience and a phenomenal portrait drawing background. Check out my work: Face Painting by Kema. I also do baby showers (bump art, get your baby painted before they are even born! only charged for traveling price). I travel within a 45 minute radius of Elgin, IL. I am very familiar with the Kane County Area.
Kema was wonderful! We are so glad that we found her. She did an amazing job painting nearly forty little faces, all of which looked wonderful. We highly recommend her and would use her services again.
Response from Face Painting by Kema:
Thank you so much Jesse. I have to say this was a group of very caring people. The ConceiveAbilities Organization is a very beautiful group.

What to Expect
Expect good quality, very detailed, precise, and proportional artwork. I work from a binder of selected pieces. However; request can be made upon booking or immediately before each painting. I'm children and adult friendly. I'm respectable of people and their property.
I've been Face Painting for 3 years now. I have tons of experience working with kids or as I call them, "moving canvases." I started working as a Temporary Airbrushed tattoo artist at Santa's Village Azoosment park in East Dundee, IL. We incorporated face painting into the shop where I began painting 30-40 full faces in a day, charged per person. Customers were more pleased with the results than they'd expected to be and insisted that I attend their private events. Thanks to word of mouth and my first client (JF) lol, I've made it a more professional hobby.
Speed: I can paint 10-12 faces in an hour
Price: $60/hr based on a 10mile radius of Elgin, IL. $70/hr/20mile. $80/hr/30mile. $85/hr/40mile. $90/hr/50mile. $95/hr/60mile (prices are subjected to change)
Travel: I Travel around Chicago land area. Mainly NW Suburbs.
Supplies needed: I will need water, a table, 2 chairs, and a controlled line of "moving canvases"/people.
My supplies: I use Face paint by @snazaroo. I use soft glitter so as not to irritate or cut the eyes. I may use adult lipstick upon request.
Face painter's operation: I will arrive at a designated time and set up at a space provided by the client. I will begin painting while keeping record of the time. Usually the guest of honor or birthday boy/girl will be painted first upon client's request. I will paint faces in an orderly fashion. If the client wishes to be on an exact scheduled time painting duration, it is their responsibility to cut off the line or else I will continue painting. (This is solely because the guest are unaware of the contracted time and will continue to line up to be painted for second times around. If the client wishes to be on an unlimited time duration, I will continue to paint until the line clears itself out and charge for time afterwards. I will collect pay before leaving. Tips are accepted. This operation usually goes by smoothly but I am open for other suggestions.
In some cases such as open events and festivals, I may be booked for a per person pay. This is for 100 people events. Payment is made before hand.
Prices: $30 travel fee from booking client price from guests: $10/full face. $8/half/mask. $6/arm. $5/cheek/eye/hand. $1/mustache/very simple art
Duration: I will stay a minimum of 1 hour. Additional other time will be based on my judgment of business
In some cases such as open events I will book myself for events where there is a charge from me for a table. I will charge the above prices per person, and duration will also be my judgment.
Additional Booking Notes
Not recommended for pool parties.

Influences & Inspiration
I became a face painter at Santa's Village Azoosment Park in East Dundee, IL. I became a private Face Painter by the influence of customers at Santa's Village mainly through my special client, J.F. for her daughter O.F. I am an automatic/assumed face painter for my nieces, nephews, and cousins lol.
