About Me

Welcome to Face Ace!

My name is Julie and I am a Calderdale face painter based in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. I created Face Ace about 3 or 4 years ago now and each year my skills get a little better as I am dedicated to continual improvement.

I love living where I do in Hebden Bridge. It is very inspirational. I am sure the beautiful scenery must help my creativity.


For your peace of mind, I am CRB /DBS compliant – see FAQs for more information about this http://faceace.co.uk/services/frequently-asked-questions/  and fully insured.

As well as being a face painter, I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and Playworker with lots of experience working with children. I have also worked in lots of customer service roles and am passionate about good customer service, so you can relax in the knowledge you will be taken care of by a professional on many levels.

My own son suffered with Eczema and so I am particularly mindful of skin sensitivity and only use high-quality water-based paints from recognised brands such as Snazaroo, Grimas, Global, Sillyfarm and Diamond FX.


I enjoy the challenges and creativity that face painting brings – each event is different and I never know who or what I will be painting next!

When I am not painting faces, I sometimes have a go at painting other stuff – like these gift boxes I made from loo rolls. I particularly love painting flowers.


I have a partner, a young son and a cat. I adore my tiny garden.  I painted the little slate heart sign with blue flowers on that you see here in this picture.

Isn’t my cat beautiful by the way?


When I say my garden is tiny, this is pretty much it!

I love cooking, going for walks and just hanging out in our allotment.

Working as a Face Painter in Calderdale is an absolute joy for me.

I appreciate how important it is to get it right when booking someone for a special event. Getting it wrong can reflect badly on you the customer, whether you are a mum, a business or an events organiser. I know as a potential customer you want value for money, professionalism and reliability.

I look forward to meeting you at your special event.
