My Mother Made Me Do It!
I get asked at nearly every party how I got started face painting. And I always give the same answer... "My mother made me."
In 2009 my mother, from Curlie's Face Art in Michigan, got a call from Nike to provide face painters for the NCAA Final Four in Detroit. She needed 8 painters but had only been painting for a couple years and didn't have enough people to cover it. So she told me that since I was coming for a visit I was doing it.
Okay, she really "asked" me... but it's just more fun to tell it the other way.
It was such a wonderful experience I just decided to keep going. Here I am four years later still painting, still learning, and still working to constantly improve my skills. Most of all I'm still loving what I do.
My job is to make people smile by providing artistic services. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to do something that I really love and make a living at it.
Thank you Chicago for your continued support.
