Face painting

Catriona Finlayson

Professional Face/ Body Art Painter

I'm an ex-teacher but now professional face & body painter, having won most of the UK face competitions, titles and awards as well as body ones over the last 15 years. 

I am mainly hired by agencies, malls, parties and events of all sizes from fetes and festivals to the Hong Kong Rugby 7's World Championships. For years I was the only face-painter in the UK hired full-time by an attraction to paint daily, which helped me become one of the fastest quality painters in the country. I also teach the art-form to schools/ groups, and in colleges or to other professional painters around the country. 

I've held a clear CRB/ DBS since 2000, and have Full Public Liability Insurance specifically for face & body art with Equity the Performer's Union. I only use top quality cosmetic paints & glitters (not cheap stuff like Snazaroo), and follow the strict Health, Safety & hygiene guidelines of the FACE association  www.facepaintingassociation.com. I'm also one of their rare Level 2 Advanced painters & a committee member helping raise standards in the industry.

Anyway - I'm here, I would be grateful if you could keep me in mind for any events. I'm happy to provide artwork/ photos for anything I work at, and as I often paint in clubs and festivals as well as at kids events, have designs that appeal to all ages. I attach some of my on-normal-job photos, all faces which would take 3 minutes or less.
