Subject: Thank you

Thanks so much for painting my daughters faces yesterday. They loved it and look so beautiful. Even today they don’t want to wash their faces and want to wear the face painting to school. My oldest daughter said it “has always been my dream to be on a face painting poster.” I told her you would make that dream come true. You can e-mail anything to me here.Thanks again. You made my daughters day yesterday.

When I was planning a birthday for my 4-year-old twins, I knew there
was only one person I wanted to do the face painting & that was Dijana
Mesin. The first time I saw her work (in Central Park), I was
extremely impressed. Dijana goes above and beyond your average face
painting for kids. She is totally unique because she uses fine art
techniques—all totally kid-friendly, of course—that create amazing,
colorful designs of animals, superheroes, dinosaurs, you name it. She
has a great eye for design (probably because of her extensive art
background) and is completely, warm and welcoming with kids. I highly
recommend her!

"I give Dijana my highest recommendation. Her face painting is artistic and original -- beautiful for children and adults alike. She is warm and enthusiastic, making a personal connection with the children as she works. She is responsive, communicative and generous and would be a wonderful addition to any party!"
Elizabeth A.


See you at your party!
