Hi, I'm Ashley the Face Painter and I'm excited to make your next event extra special!
I have 17 years of experience, and I've flown all over America, painting one face at a time! I often work large events including state fairs, art shows, corporate trade shows, and sporting events. I also love working birthday parties, and getting to make the kids smile is pretty much the best part of the job.
I often book up pretty far in advance, and if I'm not available for your event, I'm happy to book one of my other amazing artists for you! I have at least 5 face painters, 3 wonderful henna artists, 2 amazing balloon artists, and 2 fantastic caricature artists.
Just let me know what you need!
From the time she entered the house, she was a hit! Such a warm personality and extremely friendly. Her artistic abilities were such a hit with the kids as well as the adults! We had a superhero themed birthday party and she did not dissapoint!
Response from Pic-N-Paint Face and Body Art:
Thank you so much for the great review! I had a great time at your party, the kids were so polite! I loved painting all of the Wonder Woman, Bat Girl, Minnie Mouse, Harley Quinn, T-Rex, and other great requests! I hope to see y'all again soon!
We had Kristy as the face painter for our company breakfast with Santa. I think the best way to describe her artistic abilities is by simply saying that they were jaw-dropping! Watching how quickly she could create a Christmas masterpiece (on a wiggly child's face no less!) had us all mesmerized. She was truly an artist that you don't come across often, she was patient and enjoyed being around all of the children. we had a large amount of very young children and it takes a special person to be able to effectively interact with younger kids. She did so very well with them that we were actually able to have some of the toddlers faces painted! We had so many compliments on her work and demeanor, she will definitely be on our list for company events for years to come. I can not wait to see what she has in store for us next time!
My best friend and I hired Ashley to do full-torso body painting on both of us to celebrate our 30th birthdays. She was professional and kind and did INCREDIBLE work. It was truly of the caliber of Cirque du Soleil - style painting. She is creative, skilled, and fast! I would definitely hire her again.
I hired ashley when I was a marketing director for Chick-fil-A. I worked witb her for 3 years before swutxhinf jobs. She is a true artist. She had fun with the kids and can seriously do anything a kid can come up with. I have also seen her body painting skills and my mouth dropped. She is a true gem!!!! She does not disappoint.
Ashley graciously provided her face painting and balloon twisting expertise for my children's birthday parties for many years. She was always reliable and timely - even in bad weather! My children ADORED her and always looked forward to the next time they would see her again. Ashley was wonderful with all of the kids, and made every effort to give each child a unique creation. Our family has years of wonderful birthday party memories, and Ashley is at the center of every one.
I am the Marketing Director for Chick-fil-A and one of my first events planned was to have a face painter. I found Pic-n-Paint and quickly realized that many of my peers knew about her not only from Chick-fil-A but from other events. I took a chance and boy was I not disappointed. She arrived early, was completely prepared by the time the event began and worked tirelessly to create painted masterpieces on both faces and arms of children. One child wanted the Marvel comic book character Deadpool. She had never drawn him so she looked him up on her phone. WOW! You would have thought she had been drawing him for years based on the level of detail. There's not a higher review I can give her other than 5 STARS. She is, simply put, wonderful to work with and extremely talented.
Ashley is an amazing painter/ body artist. I have hired her services many times and never been disappointed. Always on time, always super friendly. She makes the kids and adults feel special when they sit in her chair and can paint just about everything you can think of. You will not regret hiring her for your special event.
Met Ms. Ashley at my son's friends birthday part a few years ago. So far she face painted at my daughter's 5th birthday party at a restaurant and our baby shower at a community center. Ms. Ashley has an amazing gift and is so talented! Excellent with her commitments in scheduled parties! She is our go-to face painter!
Ashley did a few belly paintings for me while pregnant with each of my children. She did an amazing job and made me feel so comfortable. She even had time to paint my boys faces. They didn't want to wash it off....they took a nap with it still on.
I've never had anyone do a face painting as quickly or professionally as Ashley. She makes it look studio effortless. Her designs are incredible.
I definitely recommend her for any party or event you're having.
I hired Ashley when our school decided to do a zombie themed prom. Yeah, I know it's weird but that's our kids. She zombified the kids after they got their pretty prom pictures taken. She did an amazing job. The kids loved it. She was able to do such believable zombies and a variety as well as levels of makeup.
Ashley has worked at all 3 of our kids parties over the past 7 years and she is truly amazing in every way. From her stunning, creative, elaborate, perfectionistic painting styles to her genuine, upbeat, child- friendly, patient demeanor- she is one of a kind!! Thank you for everything Ashley!!!
This was a last-minute booking and one that I am SO happy with! Professional, punctual, wonderful with children and the artwork was amazing! The artist was very personable and accommodating, as well. She was fast - getting to all the kids (and even a few adults!) in the time-frame we had, and everyone was amazed at the quality of her work. The rates were also very competitive. I would definitely hire this company again and highly recommend them!
Very outgoing and great with children of any age! Her talents exceed what she provides and she will amaze you with her professionalism! If you have a party or event in the Virginia Beach area, you need to hire her! You won't be disappointed and it is well worth every dollar you spend!
What to Expect
Pic-N-Paint artists will arrive at your event in professional attire, with a little design painted on their own face(this design will be small, and not scarey, we are just announcing to the guests our purpose, not trying to intimidate the little ones.) Is your event black tie? Just let us know and we'll be sure that your artist is dressed appropriately.
Our artists provide their own table(with table cloth,) chair, makeup kit, and sign with our top 15 face designs. If you have chosen to hire one of our Master Artists, then they will not bring a design board, since they will be working free hand from your guests requests. This allows your designs to be unique and a surprise!
Sometimes washing off face paint is not only sad, but frustrating, so our artists will provide your guests with cards to take home which have instructions printed on them on how to best remove our makeup, safely and quickly.
