Meet the Artists
Avian is a Virginia native who has grown up with a love of art her entire life. She is a painter, printmaker, and mixed media collage artist. After stumbling upon face painting through volunteering for a church Fall Festival, over 13 years ago, she quickly grew to love this vehicle of creative expression and tried to soak up as much knowledge as she could about it. She truly takes pride in having the honor of bestowing one-of-kind masterpieces on every little bright, beautiful face she gets the pleasure of putting a smile on.
Mariah, Face Painter
Mariah's family made its way to Richmond by way of New York City, and it’s been a great adventure for them so far. Her two daughters inspired her to start face painting after seeing all the places their wild imaginations could take them. Luckily, they still let her use their faces as canvases to bring some of these ideas to life. Face painting is a passion for her that never feels like work.
