Painting Muses

The past couple of weeks have been busy. And I am not complaining! I had some gigs to include a video shoot, a baby shower and a Great Gatsby Party where I got to do some live painting! How cool is that? I love my job and the fun things I get to do!
I love when I go to a gig, and the adults have more fun with the face painting than the kids!
I was invited to work on a mini video project with a local R&B singer which she has an amazing very catchy song! Her voice reminds me of Lumidee, if you know who she is.
Through networking at the baby shower, it led to this Great Gatsby event, where I stood on a mini stage and painted the scenery around me. I decided to focus my painting on the band. The music they played had me energized and was really in my groove. I was so into my zone, that when guests came to talk to me, I was startled! The client kept this cute painting as part of the whole experience, but this event is going to open up more exciting opportunities like this!
I channeled this look for the party because I don’t like to go with the norm. haha
I am working on other projects now, I finally figured out how to keep Jacob occupied when I need to get work done and that is a big bone! So far it’s working! Look how big the pup has gotten! He will be 6 months old on the 13th. He just keeps growing!
I have been organizing my business stuff for tax time. womp womp womp. It is necessary though right?
One of my friends from fashion class has been making cute lil beanies with some very interesting patches on them! I keep telling her to make an online store and a blog!
This was me after this past weekend of helping a friend move into a new house. With this and jazzercise classes with my mom, my body is beat! haha
I am off to work on some more projects after I grab some coffee to wake me up.

I Paint a Mean Face

Howdy yall! This past weekend, I was pretty busy painting faces and I gotta say that I love my job! I love that I get to play with paint and bring a smile to someone’s face no matter what the age. The weather turned out gorgeous once the rain passed. I was able to record a quick lil (somewhat a tutorial) video before heading out. I remembered to take a few snapshots too of a few faces, because I always forget to or I don’t have time.


If you’re a local in the area of Hampton Roads, and were wondering if I do birthday parties or other events, the answer is YES! I do! You can comment or email me to inquire about rates and scheduling at

Jermie and I were working our gigs and while I was facepainting, He was dressed up as Sponge Bob and Elmo. hahahaha I couldn’t help but laugh at him.



The best thing about the beach is all the cool shows that we put on. I didn’t work Saturday, so we checked out the fire show they had and Matthias got to be one of their helpers.




Look at Bella Boo! She has really gotten into skateboarding, so has Matti, but I wasn’t able to get a pic of him. But I think it will be a while before he skateboards because he fell off a trampoline today and broke his arm!


He is being a trooper! He is going to get a green cast! I am going to paint it of course if he wants me to.
