I grew up in Mexico and moved to Santa Barbara 20 years ago, I am a mother of two girls and I have been a Preschool Teacher for over 15 years . I hold a degree in Early Childhood Education. While teaching I discover another joy, Face and Body Paint. I started at school and after receiving requests and encouragement to continue the joy I found in this artistic outlet and the excitement I see on children's faces, developed into the business I have now.
This is what clients and friends say about my work:
"Beautiful work today and always! Thank you for putting a smile on every child and parent's face. You always exceed everyone's expectations!" -Valerie V>
"Maria is simply the best. The designs are beautiful, intricate, colorful and sparkly -if you want. Animals, fairies, creatures, flowers, monsters, masks... you name it, she can do it - she's awesome!!!" - Kristen B.
"Maria is a very talented artist. I've seen her work her magic on my kids several times. From fairies to tiger Maria can handle any kid request. We used Maria for my daughters birthday party last year. She was professional, showed up on time and brought all her supplies with her. The girls absolutely loved all the different designs. You are getting the absolute best when you choose Maria!" - Shannon J.
"Who said face painting is just for kids? Lol. We had the honor of booking Maria for our Animal print theme party, she was amazing!!! Love you Chica! Sure we'll see you again!
