I work as a face painter, and it's a ton of fun.
I've painted for the Portland Rose Festival, Waterfront Blues
Festival, Seattle Swashbucklers Pirate Festival, Faerieworlds,
Beaverton Farmers Market,
the Oregon Zoo, local schools, and more.
I do festivals, corporate events, school fairs, and birthday parties in the Portland, Oregon metro area and western suburbs, and beyond.
Check out the parties page for more images, praise from happy clients, and information about the events I do.
Please contact me at tinaconnolly at gmail dot com for pricing and availability. Let me know the time, location, and size of your event. (Approximate neighborhood is fine - I just need to have an idea of my commuting time for scheduling!)
And now, ten pictures of arms, just for you:
Where do I travel? I'm located in Southwest, so my main area is Portland, Lake Oswego, Beaverton, and the western suburbs including Tigard, West Linn, Sherwood, Wilsonville, and Hillsboro.
I travel outside of this area as my schedule permits, including to Seattle, Eugene, Vancouver, St. Helens, Scappoose, North Plains, Forest Grove, McMinnville, Oregon City, Camas, Longview, Cannon Beach, and the Oregon Coast. I rather like seeing new parts of Oregon and Washington, so if you have an event in some small town outside Portland like Estacada or Washougal, e-mail me anyway, and there's a chance I might be able to swing it.
Want to learn face painting? I get a lot of questions about a good face painting kit for beginners. I highly recommend this great one from Klutz. It's the one that I started on when I was in junior high.
Enjoy funny YA books? Okay, this has nothing to do with face painting, but I have a book due out from Tor Teen in May 2015, and you might like it. It's called Seriously Wicked, and it's about a 10th grade girl who lives with a *seriously wicked* witch. It's fun and funny and PG, and if you know someone who likes that sort of thing, click on the book and read more about it!
