Who we are and where we came from

Hello! I have been a children's face painter since 1997 and I'm still as passionate about it as when I first started!


When I was younger, I studied theatre makeup at Northbrook College in Worthing, where I became friends with professional make-up artist Therese Williams. She kindly took me under her wing and we worked on professional Operas in various locations around the country.


The beginning of the face painting leg of my journey is a bit of a weird one! I was then asked by a friend, who had been let down by a face painter for her child's party, to 'have a go' at face painting, and the rest is history!


I have also spent many years providing a theatrical make-up design and application service to local theatre groups, including: Durrington Theatrical Society (adult and junior productions), Mask, SMP, NSMP and Worthing Gang Show, to name but a few!


On top of that, I have also been the make-up artist for several Weddings in the local area and has been working with a local photographer providing a makeup service for modelling work.


More recently, I won the Intermediate Live Body Painting Competition at the UK Face and Body Art Convention 2016, meaning I am now an award-winning Body Painter!
