About Gypsy Janine
I started Face Painting in 2006 when my daughter (in picture opposite) was 18 months old and it was time to enter the workforce again. Corporate work didn't appeal any more and I had done wedding make-up's and a TV & Theater course in my younger days so I decided to startFace painting.
Before I started I practiced on my Mothers group's kids and anyone else who would sit still! In those days there were not any face painting YouTube's to watch or classes to go to, so it was a steep learning curve.
Now I have attended classes by many of the worlds top face painters and been to 5 different Face and Body Art Conventions. I believe it is important to keep expanding my skills.
I love painting faces and seeing the delight in the kids' eyes once their faces are complete. I now cannot imaging myself doing anything else for a job. Of course adults often get in the act too - you are never too old to enjoy a Face Paint!
In 2011 when my business grew too busy for just one Face Painter I trained my friend Liz to join the fun.
Liz has a bubbly personality that parents and kids love, and is great at her job
