About me


Welcome to Face Ace – Face Painting in Calderdale!

My name is Julie and I’m a face painter based in Hebden Bridge, covering the Halifax area and Calderdale. 

I created Face Ace about 3 or 4 years ago now. Each year, my skills get a little better as I improve and you can check out my work here: https//faceace.co.uk/gallery/

Where I live

I love living in beautiful Hebden Bridge because it’s so inspirational. The beautiful scenery must help my creativity!

My Background

For your peace of mind, I am fully insured, non smoker with a current, enhanced DBS check.

As well as being a face painter, I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and Playworker  with lots of experience working with children – especially those with additional needs.

I also have a strong customer service background, having worked in many roles in this area.

Good customer service and clear communication is very important to me 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 so I am particularly mindful of skin sensitivity. Therefore,  I only use high-quality water-based paints from recognised brands such as Snazaroo, Global, Sillyfarm and Diamond FX.

Working as a Face Painter

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!

I have a partner, a young son and a cat.

Here you can see my tiny garden with my cat on the roof!.  I painted the little slate heart sign with blue flowers.  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 pretty corner of Calderdale.

Working as a Face Painter in and around Halifax is a joy for me and I consider myself lucky.

How I can help you

I appreciate how important it is to get it right when booking someone for a special event because 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.

Match your outfit

Can’t wait to meet you at your special event!
