Growing A Business
Some may say Face Painting is the dream job… I can’t really argue, I get to go and share my love of art with so may people. I get to be a part of the most wonderful events. I have even been called the highlight of their week. I just love it when you see children who you have painted in the past who are so excited (if not a little shy) to see the face painter.
What many people don’t see is all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. I am fortunate that most of my work outside of the house happens during the weekends, which means I can be flexible with work during the week to still be able to be there with them when they need me.
We are a small local, family run business. I just started painting my own children for fun, we were soon being invited to paint a parties and events and before I knew it I was running my own business. Balancing work during the day with this extra career comes with its own challenges. To say life if busy is an under statement.
Running a face painting business involves a lot more than just painting faces and taking a few bookings. I spend a lot of time practicing and working on new designs. I am forever studying, finding out about new techniques and researching new products, to make sure we are always offering a top quality service for what ever type of event we are involved with. I am always on the lookout on ways to keep the business growing.
There is a lot of time keeping you all up to date on our website and Facebook page. There is an amazing online community of face and body artists that are continually sharing and inspiring each other. I really do try to share as much as I can with you all and answer as many questions as I can.
