Most of my work is done by sponges and brushes. At times when I have a larger job I pull out my airbrush but it is not something I prefer to do. I will use the airbrush to cut down time and cover large areas for base coats only. My detail work is always done by hand.
I really love to paint! I have a toy store in downtown Chilliwack. I opened in 2005. This is how I stumbled onto face and body painting.
I am one of those painters that never finish a project. I get bored really easy. So painting a face does not require too much commitment and I can handle that :o)
It has cured my issue with unfinished projects and I have been able to go back and finish many I started.
This is a wonderful little hobby for me and the faces of those that you paint are the reward.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY FACE TO BE PAINTED:
Most of my work you see on this blog it takes me 5 minutes. This is for someone who a) sits still b) does not talk :o) More detailed work I list how long it took for the work to be done. Some things like 'butterflies' I can just keep going on forever and make them more and more detailed but sometimes less is more.
WHO DO YOU PAINT?: I will paint anybody over the age of 3 and in good health condition
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE Yes I am insured. This is partly why the 'over 3' rule applies My makeup has been tested on 3 years of age and up. I am sure under three would not be a problem but unfortunately I have to go by the regulations set by the makeup standards
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I HAVE TO BOOK Its never too early. Call and book your date to make sure it is saved for you. Rather than a disapointment to find the day spoken for.
HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY Ideally 3 hours is a comfort level. Depending on the event I can do four but never more than 5 hours. When I paint I do not eat, drink or take breaks. Although painting does seem simple to hold a paint brush... It is very hard on your body. After 3/4 hours your neck and shoulder muscles start to ache.
DO YOU COME IN AN OUTFIT? No, I come as I am. I dress professionally but I do not dress in an entertainers outfit. I prefer to wear black as it is a color that can hide all the makeup. I consider myself an artist not an entertainer.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PROVIDE FOR YOU Events: all I need is a 10x10 space I bring all my own equipment tent, table chair and my supplies I do need a place to get fresh water and if the event requires me to bring my equipment over stairs or a distance from my vehicle, help to bring it would be appreciated. I am not a very big person and the tent and my makeup case is very heavy. Birthday parties: all I need is water :o)
WHY DO YOU FACEPAINT Face painting is a hobby for me. I love to paint, and it goes very well with my toy store. The little faces that light up once they see what I have transformed them into makes me happy! Bodypainting, I do this as a hobby as well but I love the artistic challenge it brings. It is never the same and the designs that you can create is amazing.
