Hi there, my name is Sally and I am a full time working mum with two young children and a very patient, supportive husband.
I have always enjoyed art and ever since I was painted as a tiger at my nieces birthday party quite some years ago I have wanted to be able to face paint.
In December 2012 I bought some paints and brushes and delved into the world of face painting by taking a few simple popular designs and practicing them until I gained in confidence and ability.
With this new found confidence and lots of enthusiasm, ‘Rosie Cheeks Face Painting was founded in July 2013, offering a professional and reliable service for parties and events as well as being fun and friendly.
Face painting has fast become a popular way to entertain guests and is a great way to add a splash of colour, glitter magic and entertainment to any kind of party or event. It can be enjoyed by everyone of all ages bringing everyone’s imagination to life.
To date ‘Rosie Cheeks’ has been extremely busy, attending a variety of events and parties and helping to create those special memories. There is nothing more satisfying than when a child, or even adult, takes that first look in the mirror and says ‘WOW’! I love that part.
Professional Development & Career Achievements
For my artistic development I have undertaken a Basic Face Painting course and subsequent Advanced face painting courses. I have attended various workshops including One Stroke technique and Eye Designs to extend my knowledge and ability.
In March 2016 I became a member of FACE, the International Face Painting Association having passed the certified level of competence in painting and Health & Safety.
In May 2016 I attended Paintopia Face & Body Festival in Norwich and was awarded Runner Up in the Face Painter of the Year Competition.
I also competed as the assistant painter in the competition ‘Body Painter of the Year with Assistant’ and we were awarded 2nd place.
In July 2016 I was awarded Runner Up at the South East Body Paint Project’s Rock Your Body event, having painted my tribute to the band Guns N Roses.
Most recently in March 2017 I was awarded ‘Best Newcomer’ by the International Face Painting Association.
