Hi, I’m Brenda. You can contact me using the form below.
I love helping people (of all ages) transform into art that expresses them! I have fun gently encouraging little first-timers through the face paint experience, and collaborating with people of all ages who want custom designs large and small. Respect and kindness are really important to me.
I started painting for local charitable events, then grew to festivals, birthday parties, company parties, school functions, belly painting for pregnancy, etc. I paint at lots of local events including the Redwood Mountain Faire, the Capitola Art & Wine Festival, for major tech corporations, and many more. The business has grown to include additional painters who are gentle and kind as well as great artists, so we can serve more people.
Previously I was a book designer and art director in the publishing industry (I have a degree in Graphic Design), and an art teacher, not to mention making some wild Halloween costumes for my family! Now that my own fantastic four children are grown, I am thrilled to still get to share delight with kids through facepainting.
I think it’s great when people can experience art in their everyday worlds, not just in museums. And when people can feel themselves as beautiful, separate from traditional standards. When I create custom Belly Painting designs for pregnant moms, do Fine Art Bodypainting for events, or Bodypaint Portrait photo shoots where regular people get to Be Art, or even helping a little one wear their facepaint idea, it is an honor to help people communicate themselves artistically to the world.
I will be very happy to email and/or talk with you about your needs, and am happy to expand my designs for particular themes.
