Fifi - New Jersey Face Painters


Fifi's Face Painting was started by Thea (a.k.a. Fifi) in Spring 2013. After a great experience volunteering at her son's elementary school to be a face painter at the annual school fair, her passion for painting was renewed. After working for over 20 years as a graphic designer for web and print, Thea decided to start a business as a face painter to allow her the time and resources to continue painting. Having previously painted with oils and acrylics on canvas, she discovered that painting on faces is even more fun! Especially painting on adorable children's faces and seeing the delight in their eyes when they are transformed into their favorite superhero, butterfly, princess or other favorite character. She only paints with FDA approved face and body paint as well as special body glitter for glitter tattoos. She also practices all of the recommended procedures by The Face Painting Association (FACE).

Thea has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and a Master of Fine Arts from The School of Visual Arts in New York City. She currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and two sons.
