Ms Anna did the face painting at my son’s first birthday party yesterday and she did a really great job! Everybody at the party, kids and adults loved her face painting talent, they were so excited and happy of the results. She is very talented, creates fun and colorful face painting in a blink of an eye, appears very positive, professional, all smiles the whole time, she’s nothing but amazing!!! Her face painting was a highlight at Gian’s party and we could not thank her enough for bringing smiles to our guests. The whole experience was amazing! We would definitely 100% recommend her to all our friends & everybody we know. Thank you Ms Anna for your talent, smiles and patience.
Ms Anna was great with the kids and her work was wonderful! We highly recommend working with her!

Ms. Anna was great at our corporate office event. The adults and kids alike enjoyed getting their favorite characters painted. Ms. Anna is very talented and was so easy to work with. We highly recommend her for your next party.
Ms. Anna was on-time, had all the gear - even a makeup chair - and was very professional. She got set up right away and moved the kids through quickly and efficiently. She didn't need any special attention and took care of everything which was wonderful because I was able to actually enjoy the party. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Ms. Anna was on time, professional and did amazing work. All the children at the party had their faces painted, as well as some of the adults. I highly recommend Ms. Anna and will be using her again in the future.

What to Expect
Expect to be Wowed!
Whether your event is a small birthday, or large park district field day, Ms Anna can handle anywhere from 1 guest to 75 faces/hour (although a little planning is needed in advance to set up a 40 seconds per face environment). Ms Anna loves bringing your imagination to life and Ms Anna is fabulous with Crowds!
For smaller events, Ms Anna can create large and detailed designs of anything your guests can dream up.
Ms Anna LOVES customizing work that is special just for your event; a logo you have in mind, a set of characters, a fall but not halloween set of choices, the scariest halloween zombies you can imagine; Anna is very comfortable with improvisation and adaptation.
Anna uses FDA approved face paint designed to use on everyone including children.
Anna brings her own setup including water supply unless you have a different set up in mind for your event.
Booking is Easy, Ms Anna will just need your date, address, day of contact phone number, an e-mail address to send your confirmation invoice to, desired theme, age range, and approximation of number of guests: Small Event like a Birthday (15ish faces) or a Large Event like a Block Party or Field Day or Park District (40+ guests to paint/ hour). Cost is determined by approximate event size and length of time. A travel charge may apply to those events further than 30 miles from down town Chicago. No deposit is needed to reserve face painting for your event. Payment is due the day of the event or before in check to Anna Todaro, cash, or with a card.
Works Well With Others:
Ms Anna loves Sub Contracting if you are a larger company looking for one more painter to handle your volume or are looking to add on a face painter to your already stellar team, feel free to message me for sub contractor rates.
Ms Anna has been facepainting around Chicago since 2013. Anna has face painted for hundreds of kids for The Chicago Park District, Northerly Island, The Glencoe Park District, Ralph Lauren, Dunkin Donuts, The Renegade Craft Fair, The Land of Nod, Chicago Public Schools, The Village of Skokie and North Riverside, and for hundreds of happy families at private birthday parties all over.
Additional Booking Notes
I just need room to paint, preferably 5'X5' or more. A room with decent lighting is also wonderful. I bring my own table, chair, water, pretty much everything is ready to go once I arrive and am set up.

Influences & Inspiration
Hmmmm, My Aunt Jimella first and always. I also am inspired by Disney, Silly Farm, FABA TV, Faerie World, Bjork, David Bowie, Parliment Funkadelic, Robert Smith, Pink Martini, and Star Trek...
I have my own cart, stool, and water supply. Unless you have a set up you prefer I use of your own, all I need is space.
