Welcome to www.Balloonwoman.com my blog for my offerings in the visual arts, big events, restaurant promo and birthday parties!

This girl wanted a panda bear with earrings and a bow face painting so I did a quick search and painted this piece on the spot at her birthday party in the Woodlands. It was a gorgeous place for a birthday party, with tremendous amounts of wildlife thriving-I had to move a HUGE beetle in a cup out of the gymnasium they rented b/c I have a soft spot for beetles. Later when I went to my car there was a HUGE lizard scrambling all over it. The Hardy toll road and the Westpark tollway make working both in The Woodlands and in Katy so easy and pleasant.

After two years of nanny work on the regular for two awesome kids, they are big enough to start going to school and I can catch all you site visitors and new clients up on all the balloon art, face painting, and portraiture/mural art I’ve been up to this year!!

A painting study I did of a famous joke portrait for the Movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. They say when you draw or paint portraits it winds up kinda looking a lot more like the face you see the most often. Well, judging from hints of Asiatic features here, I would say my painting turned out a little bit like the adorable girl and boy I nanny for who have some Asian ancestry through their mother. I can paint quite well and do portraits of children or pets, as well as murals, chalk art and ofcourse my birthday party work with balloons and face painting.

At Radical Eats, a balloon art parody of the mid century corn guy salt shaker. Its fun to entertain waitstaff and clientelle in a restaurant setting, kindof like being on a sitcom. Usually I'm driving all to the four corners of the gulf area doing birthday parties, but when I'm anchored to a restaurant its actually usually pretty fun bc when it gets slow I make balloons just for fun and the time flies by. If you ever get a chance go to Radical Eats they are delicious!

The famed Nacho Libre balloon sculpture for a table of grown up kids at Radical Eats on Westheimer. I twisted balloon sculptures here at the advice of a friend around the first couple months of the year. Pretty fun to entertain at the tables and make balloons for the kids. And they have GREAT food.!

This cool Nigerian American girl was telling me all about her favorite video game phone app at a birthday party I was hired to face paint and twist balloons for.

Chili pepper holding a maraca

A balloon sculpture I made of a chili pepper holding a maraca…. Radical Eats also serves great fresh juices, some locally sourced ingredients and vegetarian and meat options both! This restaurant is on Westheimer and they have a great Sunday all you can eat brunch and they even serve mimosas. Mm!

As a face painter I do a LOT of princess face paintings and princess parties…this face painting and others reflect my sensitivity to those around me, and oftentimes the princess I paint in cheek art, no matter the fairy tale, will be influenced by the child’s appearance, creating a one of a kind face painting that honors the child’s uniqueness.

This is when I first started ramping up the awesome factor on my rainbow face paintings but it actually gets even better I'll post a few more of those. I did this face painting for a French family who chose to have their birthday party in Houston Central at the Barc park I want to say near Black Hole coffeehouse

Zombie face painting! This is almost some kind of a skater graphic I would say. I have every confidence this kid was psyched to get such a crazy face painting.

Texas shaped balloon art at The Station!

Texas shaped balloon art at The Station! These ladies decided to surprise a friend with a face painting and balloon party at a porch style bar on Washington….you should do the same! They had a blast and they have great photos. One guy got that ridiculous ice cream cone tattoo with lightning bolts. If you don’t know what I’m talking just google it, it will crack you up. We had a great time, b/c I’ll let you in on a secret, kids have a shorter attention span and I’m fast at what I do, but when grownups get imaginative I tend to go the extra mile for them b/c lets face it….we didn’t get stuff as cool as the kiddos get these days, moonwalks face paintings bubble machines clowns balloon art. Wow. More like pin the tail on the donkey and my backyard swing set haha! I love making balloons for grownups in these settings because it gets people talking to each other and in a great frame of mind. People have met through my balloon work believe it or not. Its a great ice breaker for social occasions!

New Face Paintings

I just found some more recent examples of my face paintings! As you can see, I’m a visual artist with experience face painting. All of my face painting designs are original, and if you compare my work to that of other face painters in the Houston Gulf Area you will quickly see that I am a professional in the kids parties business whose work rivals easily that of professional party and kids clowns. One of my favorite aspects of being a kids birthday parties professional is it permits me to paint through face painting and balloon twisting. I make up designs per request as well. I can face paint ninjas, farm animals, princesses for princess and girls birthday parties, and all kinds of cars and vehicles for boys birthday parties!

New Face Painting Photos!

A few new face painting photos here! Since the New Year I’ve really stepped up my efforts to seek out families and help them get ready for their kids birthday parties with great products in face painting and balloon animals! I have been twisting balloons and face painting at parties more and even borrowed a pair of clown shoes! I’ve also done some balloon art work for children’s festivals and school class graduation parties. Because of the increase in family entertainment business I’ve been face painting a lot more kids doing cheek art and mardis gras masks and coming up with great face painting designs to make birthday parties memorable and fun. I hope to become one of Houston’s top face painters and balloon artists with tons of experience! :-) Check out these good face paintings!20140329_190210-120140329_192509-1

Superbowl Sunday Free Balloons In The Park!

This past Superbowl Sunday I decided to stop by a park that I often take a small friend of mine when I am helping as nanny. I noticed that its always bustling with kids so I decided to stop by and make some balloons and balloon animals and maybe do a little face painting for free on my off day so that I can get some pictures of my work. I make lots of balloons at children’s parties but am hesitant to bring a camera along less it upset my cadence and product. :) Who knows? Maybe one Sunday I’ll be at your park! I picked up my neat birthday party glasses at party city, I couldn’t resist them. Well without further adieu here are some photos (and a video)!

Welcome to a new balloon twisting site for friends and fans!

Hi there! This is my very first post on my new website. I would like to thank all the little people very literally because it is in fact they, (and of course people who are in the spirit of their former little people selves) who have helped me to learn to make balloon sculptures all these past 10 years as well as I have! I would like to also thank whomever first insisted on commemorating birthdays, as well as the festival originators, and the Aztecs and Inca for being the first recorded humans to ever make balloon sculptures, and lastly, Qualatex balloon company who have kept the product’s quality consistent all this time.

Many thanks of course should go to WordPress too!

You may notice a little area for doodles, a calender for events, and a small bar at the bottom of the page for weather forecasting, current and next seven days.
