About the Artist

I’ve been painting faces since 2005, but I’ve painted for as long as I can remember. My love of children and the lack of children’s entertainment in the area prompted me to go into business as a professional face and body painter.

I LOVE painting faces of all ages, painting pregnant bellies, backs, arms, etc. I work well with children, teens and adults.

I live in Grover Beach with my husband, two children and one step-son. I am willing to travel to anywhere in San Luis Obispo county or Santa Maria/Orcutt. (Travel fees may apply.)

More about me:
I studied Art at Cal State University, Northridge (CSUN) and Cuesta College. I have been painting, drawing, sculpting and crafting since I was very young. I grew up in the Los Angeles area (San Fernando Valley) and moved to San Luis Obispo in 1997.

When I’m not face or body painting, I spend a lot of time painting on canvas and other various surfaces (like driftwood, reclaimed wood, etc.) If you want to see my other art, feel free to check out that facebook page at: www.facebook.com/artistsoohoo I paint under my maiden name SooHoo.

My husband and I were married in 2003. We have a daughter and a son who are our pride and joy and continue to keep us very busy. In early 2014 my husband passed away. I found love again and married my current husband in late November 2017. I now have 3 step sons but they are much older than my kids.  

I spent several years volunteering with SLOCountyMommies.com with the goal of helping other moms, particularly new moms.
