Having a stranger in your face touching you with wet brushes can be a little uncomfortable for some first timers. This is why it is important to me to have my face completely visible, to establish a one on one connection with the child. I also try to ensure them that I will not paint them if they don't want me to - this can be annoying for any parents who waited in a line finding out their kid is just not into it but it is one of my strictest policies. I will not paint anyone who does not want to be painted. I will scoot them back in if they change their mind though.
One of my favorite things is creating special request designs on the fly. One example is when a little boy requested, " a burger with feet and a giant foot about to step on it" Sometimes I feel like a Genie, granting wishes!
Dance and Theatre Troops
So grateful to have been a part of a few performances with a local dance company, Solstice Studio!
I enjoyed the challenges of getting all the faces done in a short period of time as well as working with the performance visionary to help achieve 'the vision'.
Here I am at a winter event at the local pool. Plus some beautiful faces! The little reindeer was happy with her face paint, she just really didn't like the flash in her face, twice by accident... oops!
I wish I could take a picture of every single beautiful face that has sat in my chair. It is really such a wonderful joy to be able to help these little souls access their imaginative play. From the moment they see their sparkled and transformed faces, and when they show their family and when other people see them as they walk around - it's such a much needed rippling effect that I think helps bring people closer and is such a key role in that community feeling found within festivals, markets and events.
Only non-toxic, professional grade body paints used.
I'm not just a face painter, I am also a sparkle tossing joy facilitator!
