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?
I love cooking, going for walks and just hanging out in our allotment.
My son is an artistic little soul. Face painting must definitely be in the blood. An apprentice in the making!
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.
