Can not wait to hire her again!

Courtney was amazing! She was so nice and patient with the kids. She did amazing work and several people from the party have already asked me for her information. I hope to use her again in April if she is open! Thank you so much for making my daughters party so much fun!

I cannot thank you enough for such a glowing review. It was a pleasure to meet your friends and family - so many wonderful people. I look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Little girl birthday dream party!

Courtney was fabulous. My daughter turned 5. We had a unicorn/princess party. 8 of her friends dressed up, and had their adorable little faces painted. She was right on time, professional and so sweet and patient with the girls. Her set up is beautifully done! Can't imagine that anyone could o a better job!
I've since used her for other events and she never disappoints!!!

Amazing artistry!

I hired Courtney as a surprise for my daughters birthday party and I'm now the coolest Dad in town! She not only did unbelievable work but made it so much fun for the girls - all the parents at the party couldn't say enough about it and I'm sure we will see Courtney again at her friends parties! I don't usually take the time to write things like this but every now and again you get exceptional service, this was one of those times. Book her, you won't be sorry...and you end up being a hero too!

Fantastic professional and personable!! She IS top-notch.

Courtney is a true artist. The designs she paints, you NEVER want to wash off! She is a true professional, and besides having a natural talent, you can tell that this person has had great training as well. She is personable, everyone loves her. I would suggest having her for any event to add an element of fun, whimsy & artistry!
