For almost 15 years I've developed my skills as a face painter in the UK, attending birthday parties, school fairs and entertaining kids and adults in the neighbourhood for Halloween and Holidays. I am now bringing my unique style of face painting to kids (and big kids) in the Lower Mainland. Check out some examples of my work in the gallery

Face painting is something that really draws the crowds. 

When a child first looks into the mirror after being painted there’s a moment when they don’t recognise themselves, then it gradually dawns on them and you see the biggest smile you’ve ever seen!

That’s what face painting is all about, instant magic - intimate, rewarding, transformative, fascinating and one of a kind!

I attend birthday parties, fairs and festivals and I'm a great addition to company picnics, Christmas parties, fund raising events, store openings and more. Everything is completely tailored to your event and priced very competitively. 

Consider adding Melanie Dawn to your next event - Face painting is a popular attraction for both kids and adults and will make your event a memorable one.
