Children’s Face Painting

Kids love face painting and what better way to add colour and excitement to a birthday party than to hire a face painter? We use professional products suitable for all skin types, creating individual and unique designs for every child. Each design takes no more than a few minutes, so the children are happy to line up patiently, waiting to be transformed. From the minute they sit in the chair to the magic mirror moment at the end, our artists’ friendly and gentle nature encourages even the shyest of children to join in the fun. We are experts at translating each child’s wish into reality, taking inspiration from their favourite toys, party outfits or whatever they can imagine!

Face Painter Brighton Hove East Sussex South East England London - 1

Orange Purple Art was set up in 2011 by award-winning, Brighton-based artist, Lisa. Lisa has always been a maker and creator, since studying art many years ago. Growing up in a family of artists and makers, she was immersed in many art forms from an early age, before discovering face and body art when she had a young family. This instantly ticked a lot of boxes for her – combining her love of art, colours, sparkles, working with the public, and organisational skills! Not to mention her love of the ephemeral aspect of the art form.

Her creative repertoire and face painting experience is extensive - from butterflies and superheroes at a children's party or themed designs at corporate events to bespoke, one-off looks for groups. Having trained with and worked alongside many of the top face and body artists on the planet, including several past World Champions, Lisa continues to research and practice the art, constantly developing her work. 

Lisa has a carefully curated team of artists that she has met along her face painting journey and we all hold full Public and Product Liability Insurance and are DBS checked.

Absolutely fantastic! Lisa is a lovely lady and extremely talented. The children were delighted with their face paint as were the parents. I felt totally relaxed and confident that Lisa was totally in control, she set up an attractive work station and she has a great way with children. I am a very happy customer and will be booking her again.
Thanks very much Lisa x
