Ellis - Maryland Face Painters


Ellis has always been willing to paint just about anything that holds still long enough (which was not appreciated when it was on the kitchen walls). After being face painted as a little girl, she turned her attention to recapturing the joy of the experience. She practiced for years – on herself, on family, on friends, on anyone who would let her.

Ellis’ background is in fine arts and professional moulage and theatrical make-up has served to enhance her face painting skills. Her love of body art has lead Ellis to recently explore the traditional art of henna and airbrushing, which she hopes to incorporate more and more into her already diverse repertoire. While Ellis does provide design idea notebooks she is always willing to take special requests or tailor her designs, and costume, to any genre needed. If you can dream it, Ellis will do what she can to make it happen.

It is Ellis’ goal to give everyone, children and “big kids” alike, something to bring a little bit of magic to their day. Her favorite part of the process is seeing her customer’s eyes light up with joy and exclaim “It’s perfect!”
