Family Parties

“I am so happy with my experience with Shelby! I celebrated my son’s 6th and daughter’s first birthday party and invited Shelby to paint faces. Everyone was excited with how their faces turned out! She even stayed a little late to give them hand tattoos! What really sealed it for me, was when I told her my daughter wouldn’t get her face painted, she brought her a birthday card, and my son too! She was on time, very pleasant, and went above and beyond to make it a great evening. I would definitely recommend her for any party!”

“Shelby was an absolute pleasure to work with. She contacted me before the party to find out if there was a theme, and then prepared special designs to fit the theme. Shelby arrived on time and prepared, and had a calm and laid back vibe, which is just what we wanted. She painted wonderful designs on boys and girls ranging from age 3 to 11. I would heartily recommend Shelby for any party.”

Community Events

“Shelby painted face at our Holiday Party last year. Her fun and gentle approach with kids and adults added an extra special activity to our festivities. I look forward to having her back again next year!”

-Emilie Amstutz, Owner of Borealis Community Yoga, Medford, MA

“Shelby came to our afterschool program on the afternoon of Halloween. The kids all had a blast, and loved their face paint — it really made our Halloween afternoon special! I’d totally recommend her and will use her again!”

-Liane Weber, Director at Ready Set Kids! After School, Arlington, MA

“Shelby provided face painting for a school fundraiser in my community. She was prompt and efficient in her setup. She worked tirelessly in a non-air conditioned auditorium for over two hours and I was impressed with her attention to detail and the artistry of her designs, whether of her own choosing or that of the children. My son’s tiger design was absolutely beautiful. Most importantly, her demeanor with the children was perfect–they were super comfortable and delighted with the whole process. I would highly recommend Shelby for any children’s events you are planning.”

-Anna R., Boston, MA

“Shelby is the best face painter I know. She is friendly, professional, and great with kids. She is always open to suggestions and new ideas.  The time she spends researching — and the care she takes creating — her more complex designs is absolutely remarkable.

“I am so glad that she face painted for the Fall for the Fells family festival. She did an excellent job and I highly recommend her.”

Ann Frenning Kossuth, Director of Youth Programs at Friends of the Middlesex Fells, Melrose, MA
