Face Painting * Henna * Glitter and Hand-Painted Ink Tattoos

Serving Central Virginia - Charlottesville, Richmond and Surrounding Areas

"Your presence really helped make our festival fun and memorable
and you contributed a lot to its success..."

Lisa Landsverk, Vice President, Charlottesville Vegetarian Festival
I create award-winning face painting, henna designs, and temporary tattoos 
 in Charlottesville, Richmond, Henrico and Central Virginia.

Designs can be tailored to your theme or type of event. They are a unique,
colorful addition to all types of public and private events.
Let's make your celebration remarkable.

NOTE: Unlike some face painters, I never use craft or oil paint.  The only thing I use 
is hypoallergenic, FDA-compliant professional face paint
that easily washes off with plain soap and water. 

Looking for a fun, different way to promote your business? Entertain clients? Say "Thank You" to your employees? Professional face painting is colorful, eye-catching, and creates the perfect photo op.
Images of my work have appeared both in newspapers and on television.

In addition to face painting, I also offer these professional services:

        Temporary glitter tattoos - created with cosmetic (polyester) glitter and medical adhesive. 

        Henna - created with henna that is handmade by professional henna artists,
my designs usually last from 1-3 weeks.

          Extreme makeup and special effects - I'm a master at creating zombies!
