I specialize in events for families and children. With over 20 years of experience I can provided amazing balloon sculptures, fabulous face painting or glitter tats, pocket magic or strolling entertainment. If you're looking for a seasoned clown performer, my award winning clown persona "Sugar" can customize an interactive program where your birthday child becomes a star! Whether you're planning your company picnic, your own child's birthday, your school's annual carnival, or ANY event targeting children or intergenerational audiences, I know you won't be disappointed.

On time, worked well with the kids and adults.

I think I've always been an entertainer at heart. After graduating from Kansas State Teachers College with a BSE in Speech with a theatre emphasis I worked for the next 34 years at King Radio and Bendix/Honeywell in KC. I never lost that desire to interact with an audience and so in 1991 I began to pursue an education in the clown arts....which for me included face painting, balloon sculpting as well as comedy magic. I love entertaining children of all ages! I have won numerous awards both locally and internationally for my creative balloon art, fancy face painting, and comedy performance skills.
As an experienced and enthusiastic family entertainer, I am currently serving Branson, Springfield, and many other cities/towns in the Southwest Missouri area. I will also travel to parts of Kansas and Arkansas, however, a 2 hour minimum booking and additional travel fees may apply.
I am a member of Clowns of American International, Ta Da Clown Alley #293, The Twisted Sisters Plus One, and the Southwest Missouri Face Painters Guild. As a responsible professional, I carry entertainers insurance and am dependable.
Since I have multiple skills I can offer a variety of party packages tailored to the customers needs.
