Karen first started drawing as a child. Her favorite subjects were birds. All kinds of birds; birds in flight, birds eating worms, birds with huge plumage. At 10 she began copying, line for line the works of Michelangelo and da Vinci. It wasn't until after years of oil and acrylic painting, followed by charcoal figure drawing and award winning work in cake decorating that Karen brought her skills to face painting.

Face Painting by Sarah

north florida face painting guild artist sarah

I graduated in 2008 with my Bachelors of Fine Art in Graphic Design. I have always loved art and started creating at an early age.

I started painting faces for the kids night at the local IHOP in 2003. Then I moved to Tallahassee to pursue my degree in Graphic Design. I have rediscovered the joy of face painting. It is an amazing feeling to have the children be so appreciative of my work.

In late 2006 I was blessed with a beautiful boy named Elkon. Again in early 2010, I was blessed with another boy, Klyson. My two sons are the world to me, and I am very happy to have them. My son Elkon loves to paint and is already starting to pick up the brush, I cant wait to start teaching them both! I come from a family of artists, and look forward to passing on the talent to others.

Face Painting by Sarah services include: Face Painting, glitter tattoos and balloon sculpting
