Hello, and thank you for visiting my website! Often times I am asked how I got into face painting. Well, it all started several years back while working as a professional magician's assistant during college. We were always asked if we also did balloon animals or face painting and it became clear it was time to learn so I started with balloon animals. After graduating college and moving on from magic into a full time job in the corporate world, I decided to continue doing balloon animals for birthday parties as a side job on the weekends. As I learned more balloon designs and word of mouth spread to new clients, the busier I got and it was soon time to turn my little side job into my own professional business. And so, the first business I owned, Balloons by Kelly, was born.
Not long after, I began getting a lot of questions about whether I also did face painting, so I decided I'd give it a whirl. Since I was already an art fan I thought it would come naturally to me. Well, one thing I can tell you is that painting on skin is a whole other story than painting on paper! But, with some practice I was soon able to add face painting to my repitoire.
