Today we welcome another fair newcomer, Lisa of Celestielle Paint who will be bringing the fairy tales to life by painting faces in our cafe area!…
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
I’m Lisa from Celestielle Paint, I’m an award-winning Brighton based face & body artist. I provide high quality, professional face & body art for children & adults alike.
How long have you been painting faces?
I first started painting faces around 3 years ago. The first faces I painted were my children’s and I was immediately hooked! Before long, I was being asked by friends to paint at their children’s parties and it has snowballed from there!
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it?
The most popular request by far is the butterfly! Closely followed by flower fairies and monster faces…
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
Honestly, I love it all, but the best part of the job is holding the mirror up to show the finished design and the huge beaming smile that follows!
Will you have some special Spring time Easter designs on offer?
I have some very cute Spring designs which girls and boys love!
Do you take part in other events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I have painted faces at a huge array of events, from huge music festivals, airports, football stadiums, shopping centres, night clubs, food festivals, charity fundraising events and many more. Check out my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/celestiellepaint for details of where you can find me
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
Last year was a very exciting year for me – being accepted as a member of FACE – the Face Painting Association and being awarded Paintopia Face Painter of the Year were particular highlights. This year I will be taking classes with the World Face & Body Painting Champion, Matteo Arfanotti from Italy, which I am super excited about!
Describe what Easter means to you in 5 words or less:
Children, chocolate and community!
