Nicole’s bio is rather interesting to read, as this Tri-Lingual face painter describes her journey as a full-time insurance adjuster to full-time AMAZING ARTIST. This lifelong crafter has always been involved in art, and as a hobby, painted, well, most everything! In her Online Biography, she states” I have always loved painting anything that would present itself in front of my brush; from rocks to walls, to paper, to fabric, to furniture, to houses, to balloons, to pumpkins and finally to faces/arms/legs/backs, etc. I also love oil painting on canvas, acrylics, and ceramics, etc.” Well, there you have it! It was her young daughter’s preschool event that made this crafty mom turn pro!
After 20 years in the insurance industry, a layoff propelled this artistic entrepreneur into a whole new realm of fun, Painting Faces! Since 2008 Nicole has been providing her professional face painting entertainment talents to daycare and school functions, community festivals, church events, and of course birthday parties. We love her philosophy and obvious recognition of the joy of children when she says, “With such beautiful canvasses (faces), how can my artwork not be a masterpiece? “ Yes, we agree with Nicole.
This artist is very professional, only using FDA approved face painting materials, not only paint but glitter and all the extra bling that make her designs just so stunning! Fully insured, and licensed, businesses can be confident hiring her for large festivals and community events with this vetted entertainer. (Oh, and she has amazing reviews online.)
Her artistic offerings have evolved to include Henna custom design work, which is becoming very popular, and we are even seeing Henna Baby Bumps or Henna Pregnancy Art! Wow!
Glitter Tattoos are another staple in this entertainer’s repertoire – Nicole offers water-proof art that will last for days. Glitter tattoos are of course safe, using cosmetic grade, FDA approved supplies and are applied either by freehand creating customized designs or from any of the numerous stencil options that Nicole can offer at any event. (And you know a professional face painter has probably a 100 or more glitter colors to select from). Glitter Tattoo art is safe to use all over the body, easily removed with rubbing alcohol, and yes Water-Proof. (Frequently seen at water parks nationwide.)
For the DIY party planner, (OK, yes that means all the crafty moms out there), Nicole offers Glitter Tattoo packs that she can mail to you that include all supplies needed, including stencils and instructions. Now that is perfect for a sleep-over party!
Nicole really specializes in her Face Painting skills, providing speedy fast fun designs for larger events (think 3-year-olds at a festival), to full and half face designs. We have featured a handful of our favorites from her digital portfolio in the gallery below. This sought after entertainer will travel up to 4 hours from the Portland Metro area (for an additional fee). Keep in mind that holiday times, especially Halloween, are booked far in advance nationwide for face painters, and have different rates for these peak seasons than the typical rate Nicole offers, which is a flat hourly rate with a two-hour minimum.
