What are they saying about About Faces?

"Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the entertainment provided by your caricature artist, Mr. Kirk Kuenzi.  He was professional in every way; prompt, courteous and friendly.  We had invited about 60 kids to our daughter's Sweet 16 party and every one of them was thrilled to take a personal cartoon of themselves home. He put the kids at ease as they sat for their illustrations and did a wonderful job of capturing each child's personality in the rendition, as well as their physical characteristics.   Grandpa and Grandma even got in on the fun as they sat for their caricature.  He made the night alot of fun and we thank him most sincerely for the memories of this special event."


Greetings!

June's Featured Artist
Sue McFeeters


Congratulations to Sue, our featured artist this month! Sue is a face painter and henna artist with many years of service to the Maryland, DC, and VA area. I asked Sue to answer a few questions so that we could learn a little bit more about her and the great work that she does.

How many years have you been in the business? "I started face painting  in October, 1997 (so 11 1/2 years).....and I started Henna tattoos in Sept. 2001 (so 7 1/2 years)"

How did you get into entertainment? "I was working as an assistant teacher in a nursery school ( my emphasis was art ) and one of the parents was an entertainment provider and he asked me if I would like to try face painting.  So I tried it and I loved it.   So here I am 11 1/2 years later."

What's your favorite type of event? "I like the Corporate Picnics best because, unless it rains, it is nice to work outside in a  picnic atmosphere."

What's your most memorable event? "Most memorable?.... hmmm...that is hard to say.....what is memorable is that this job takes me to many exciting venues.  I have painted in the U.S. Capital , on the White House Ellipse, many of the Smithsonian Museums, the Library of Congress, The National Aquarium, The U.S.S. Constellation, Camden Yards, The Washington Nationals Stadium, just to name a few.  I am not trying to brag... I am just in awe of the many places this job has taken me."

Obviously, Sue is a great and versatile entertainer and we're happy to have her as part of our talented team! Check out her henna page and see some shots of her in action here! If you have an event that Sue could make special don't hesitate to email us or give us a call at 1-800-923-8669!




Father's Day


June 21st is Father's Day!  While you are busy deciding what kind of party to throw dad and what to buy him, enjoy some trivia:

· The first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd in honor of her dad, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who was left to raise his six children on a farm.

· The necktie is the most common and famous Father's Day gift.  A good place to buy dad a tie or a shirt might be one of 9,189 men's clothing stores around the country. Other traditional gifts for dad such as fishing rods and golf clubs make for a happy Father's Day for the 22,410 sporting goods stores in America.

· This is a big day for the 66.3 million fathers in America.

· Nearly 96 million Father's Day cards were given last year in the United States, making Father's Day the fourth-largest card-sending occasion.


and remember, the best gift for Dad is a big party with a caricature artist to help him remember the day forever!
