I cannot describe in simple words the creativity and beauty of Maria’s face painting. The little girls looked like they had come out of a fairy tale. They looked beautiful and they felt like princesses. I recommend Maria very highly. If you have her at your party you will definitely not be disappointed. She will be the highlight of the party. I have the most amazing pictures of the girls’ faces. Maria is truly a gifted artist. — Candida A, Nanuet, NY, 5/23/2010

Maria did a fantastic job at my daughters 10th birthday party. She was not at all affected by 15 screaming 10 year olds and did beautiful work, both facepainting and tatoos, the girls were thrilled. She was very calm and worked quickly so that everyone had a chance to be painted. She also did facepainting for my 5 year old boys that looked like they could have performed in a Broadway show the work was so good. One of our guests commented that their daughter looked as if she could be performing in the Chinese Peking Opera. I would highly recommend Maria for any party!! — Allison D, Scarsdale, NY, 6/13/2010

We had a comm party with over 25 kids I needed to keep the kids occupied.I cant put in to words how great Maria was with the kids.Designs she created on their arms & faces would have thought to take hours detail in everything she did all the kids had multiple paintings done Ive been getting phone calls from guests not complemeting the food but asking for Maria’s number for parties!!! Maria is great awesome a true Artist who loves what she does Book her you wont be sorry Her pictures on her gigmaster website dont even do her justice I will use her for every party Wonderful Superb Excellent extremely reasonable a great experience I had — Jeannine K, Jericho, NY, 5/8/2010




Maria & her son arrived promptly & were set up very quickly. As soon as our first guest had their face painted, there was a line that formed. Each guest had a request to outdo the last “customer” & Maria endeavored to accommodate each request, including drawing up new designs outside her book of choices. We had guests from 1 to 70 who were adorned with the vibrant paints, glitters, & jewels, & everyone was so delighted with the work, that we had to extend the time just to get everyone in line completed. We are very happy with the face painting & balloon twisting services, & many of our guests have asked for details of having Maria & her son at their next event! — Elizabeth T, Easton, CT, 6/12/2010

Maria is in a league of her own when it comes to her craft. She was prompt, organized, pleasant, kid friendly and her work was the best we’ve ever seen. All the faces she painted were breathtaking works of art with whimsical details only a true artist would know how to deliver. To say we are ecstatic would be an understatement and we would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone considering her for an event. — Maria M, Nyack, NY, 2/27/2010

Maria was fantastic from start to finish. Both kids and adults were amazed by her artistic creativity. She was a pleasure to work with and we will certainly recommend her to family and friends. Many people who attended our party took cards and are still talking about her facepainting. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents with us! — Denise V, Commack, NY, 5/8/2010

We were so happy to have Maria at my 6 year old daughter’s backyard birthday party! Maria is very talented and can create beautiful and very dramatic transformations very quickly for the children! Maria is an artist and is very professional — she worked very hard to get through all of the requests at our party. The children were thrilled with their faces. The face painting was fun for the person being painted and was also very entertaining for other children that were watching Maria at work! I highly recommend Maria and look forward to having her at our next party! — Debbie H, Chappaqua, NY, 6/18/2010

Maria and Nick did a great job at my child’s comm party! There were 21 children there and they were completely occupied and happy with the facepainting and balloons. Even the adults got into the festivities and got some tattoos done! I have already recommended Maria and she is doing a party only 7 days after my own! Thank you, Maria! I will be using you again in the future! — Michelle M, New City, NY, 5/3/2009

Everyone from young to old was amazed with her work. The kids didn’t want her to leave. She was great with the kids she was just FABULOUS I would highly recommend Facepainting and parties by Maria to anyone. D. Millien Spring Valley, NY 4/24/2010 — Dianna M, Park Ridge, NJ, 4/24/2010

Maria was great! I had a 50th birthday party so all my guests were adults. Everyone had a great time with picking and receiving their tattoos whether they were glitter, stenciled or free hand. Maria is a warm, friendly individual who will add to your party’s ambiance. I had such great feedback from my guests. They really enjoyed their tatoos. The glitter type can stay on for almost a week even with showering! Enjoy Maria’s services, she’s really a pro.. Lorri Steinbaum New City, New York — Lorri S, New City, NY, 10/2/2009

Maria, and her assistant, were FABULOUS. The kids loved her facepainting as well as the balloon blowing & tying her assistant provided. She was prompt, professional, pleasant and tidy. Every parent I’ve run into since the party has offered spontaneous praise of Maria and her work. She made the party, and I have no hesitation recommending her services. — Jinnah P, West Hartford, CT, 1/30/2010

Maria was great! I was unprepared when she arrived. I completely forgot to ask the staff at the resteraunt to set up a table for her but she took care of everything. She brought her son as well to make balloons for the kids who were waiting to get their face painted and was well worth it! She was a pleasure and was just great! I look forward to using her in the future and highly recommend her! — Jennifer L, Yonkers, NY, 3/28/2010

Maria was very friendly and accommodating to my guests. The children and adult alike were very excited to get their face and/or arms painted. At church the following day, one of the children still had some of his paint on and was crying because he had to clean some of it off. He refused to let his mother clean the rest. I am very pleased with the services that Maria offered and I would be more than delighted to recommend her services to others. Thanx Maria, my husband and I are pleased that you were able to provide your services at our son’s 1st b-day party. — Yvette F, Brooklyn, NY, 3/6/2010

Wow, Maria is amazing! Everyone from 5 year old to 50 year old were oohing and ahhing at her work. She is organized; accomodating; friendly; and super talented. We actually used a facepainter for many years who was already booked so we found Maria on this website and we are really grateful we did! We now have a new facepainter that we will always turn to first! All my kids are asking for her for their parties coming up. by the way, it is important to note that her spectacular designs are great for both boys and girls…she has some very cool boy designs which everyone loved.
