All Ages FacePainting

Please help me create a super silly and beautiful art installation in the Pods for May and June.   I will be filling the Seven Store Fronts (The Pods) all along Halsted near 18th St with brightness and whimsy.       I would really love for you, yes YOU (especially residents of Chicago and really super especially residents from Pilsen) to be a part of it.  All ages, genders, peoples of every shape and size are welcome!!

Come out to Second Friday to get your face painted and get your picture taken in my photobooth making a SillyFace to be printed and displayed.

I also have a facebook event page.

Fun new Face Painting Video

There is no talking in it, but I’m pretty proud of my new little creation.  If you love what I do, please feel free to share.  I am a one girl production and can use all of the help I can get.   Thank you and I hope you enjoy these images.

Facepainting from Do Division last weekend

I painted well over 200 faces during the three day festival, not to mention the 60 faces I painted the thursday night before at a design office party.  It was a lot of work but it was worth it.  I also got a few young art collectors out of the deal as two young girls came to raid my $5 sketch pile.  I also sold several copies of Everybody Hoops but me.  What a weekend.

What’s Blooming on Harrison this weekend in Oak Park

What's-Blooming-Logo (1)

This Saturday from 10am to 8pm in Oak Park on Harrison, just west of Austin, I will be out with my facepainting cart and copies of my book.  I am in space #35 on the south side of Harrison.   I have been pretty busy this week with the artwalk and face painting at One Strange Bird on Division.  Below are a few of the photos. I really with I had more of the kids… I painted nearly 100 faces at One Strange Bird on Saturday (not to mention my new sun tan.)    I am really looking forward to seeing everyone who comes out in Oak Park.

Making a Magical Facepainting Chair from Scratch

             For fair season this year, I really wanted to try something different for my booth.  When I found this old chair backed shaped shelf with stars on it at the thrift store, I decided to see if there was a way to turn it into a Magical Facepaint Chair.   With the help of Craigslist, I found a perfect 30″ stool base (which no one else wanted because the color was so odd).   With the help of my sister in law Jennie (a structural engineer of all things) and my nephew Dean Everett, we were able to create a Magical Facepaint chair from scratch (which also swivels).

Stay tuned for facepainting with ms Anna this summer at fairs, special events, and private birthday parties.  For more information on hiring ms Anna for your event, please check out   http://www.msAnnaArt.com  Summer season weekends are almost completely booked and weekdays are filling up fast.   Please message for availability right away.

I make designs for boys and girls (all ages welcome).  Everything from fairy princesses, butterflies and pandas to pirates, aliens and dragons.  I am also pretty good with funny mustaches.   For parties and events, I can create custom designs based on your theme and color scheme.   At a standard 1.5 hour birthday party, I can paint 18 full faces (as seen on my postcard).  All paint is professional grade, coconut based body paint.
