Book San Francisco Bay Area based multi-media artist and face painter Gleam for your next party, event, performance, fundraiser, show, or night out dancing. 



Face Painting is such a joyful offering to add to any event for adults and children alike.  Hundreds of faces in, I'm still addicted to the delight that accompanies the moment of reveal.  As an art form with such a wide range of styles - from masking oneself unrecognizably to creations of pure self-expression, from gore to sparkly beauty, and from the literal to the abstract - I believe face paint has the power to inspire, energize, calm, connect, and heal.  

I'm based in Oakland, CA and up to 25 miles of travel is included in my rates.  Please use my contact form below to let me know the details of your event.  Got a project idea you think I'd like to collaborate on?  I'm all ears!
