My personal experience

 I started contracting in Ikea 15 years ago, and Facepainting and Arts and Crafts were relatively new. IKEA was a thought leader and very family orientated. The face painting craze is still as popular today. I have seen the children I painted grow up, and even one at Cambridge University.


 social media was on a much smaller scale, and things were much slower. Now the rise of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, You Tube and Pinterest have put photographs of our face painting across the globe, and taken the business to another level.


Branding has become an important part of the business and I have a team that can cut logos into the requisite face painting stencils within 24 hours, as seen in the X factor Filming video (coming soon).


Speed has become crucial in the business as time has become a limited commodity. At the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park, the team had to face paint each design in 2-5mins!  And they managed this very efficiently.


The business has evolved, and over the years IKEA has been a loyal and very satisfied client, as the team kept their clients really happy.



❤My team and I love what we do.  The service is still very personal, and we meet your needs in the best way we can.
