About Daisy Jane
I'm Jane... Also known as Daisy Jane.
I am the owner/lead artist of Daisy Jane's Face Painting. As the name suggests I am a fully insured professional face painter, based in Leicestershire.
Having loved art and anything crafty since being a child, over the years I have dabbled in many creative disciplines and gained a GCSE in Art & Design at college. Following this I went on to qualify with a Diploma in Nursery Nursing and began caring for children in nurseries, before going off to New York to work as an Au Pair in the USA.
It was a great job, as it allowed me to use my creative skills as well as nurturing my caring side working with children every day. I went on to have a 20 year career working in a professional capacity with children and families in a variety of disciplines, eventually specializing in Child Behaviour and working for 8 years in a dedicated Child Behaviour Team for Leicestershire County Council.
During this time I continued to stretch my artistic interests through creative evening classes, hobbies at home and of course face painting for friends, family, work and charity events. Over the years I perfected my skills and following lots of encouragement from people who saw my face paint art and special fx, I decided to bring to you all 'Daisy Jane's face painting'.
It wasn't long until I realised this was my true calling, running my own business and bringing smiles to hundreds of children and creating wonderful memories for families using my artistic talents, so I turned my dream into a full time profession.
I continually strive towards improving my skills so I can provide you with the absolute best and most up to date designs and techniques. Therefore I regularly invest in and attend training & conventions.
So far, I have been lucky enough to receive training from some of the best and most recognised face painters and make up artists in the world inc; Natalee Davies (Face Painter from Australia who has her own collection of paint and creates the most stunning butterflies you have ever seen), Anna Lingis (Make Up & Body Artist to the stars... Inc Little Mix, Love Island & TOWIE). I have also attended workshops with Heather Green (owner of Sillyfarm Face Painting Supplies in USA), Cameron Garrett (Fabatv Instructor from USA), Nick Wolfe (Fabatv Instructor from USA), I attended a Masterclass with Karen Huwen (another amazing Fabatv Instructor from UK) and in 2022 I will be attending the International Face Painting Convention UK, where I will have the opportunity to learn from multiple international award winning Face & Body Artists.
I can't wait to meet you at a party or event soon!
