*I hold my B.A. in Early Childhood Education & Special Education from Rivier College in Nashua, NH. 



I've Been in the creative arts all my life...  Oil Painting, Still Life, Water Colors, Photography, Acrylic Painting, Pottery...and Face Painting.  

Raised in Nashua, NH.  Currently reside in the cozy Town of Milford, NH.  Just love being here! 

This is where I feel what makes Trading Faces more desirable for hire..... 

I have worked many many years with  young children and parents.  It not only takes talent to be face painter...but also patience and understanding that each child who sits in my chair is unique and special.  Special requests and designs that are "child" inspired...are always welcome!  They are, after all...the canvas. ;)

Parents/caretakers also play an important roll.  I feel it is "key" to work with the parents at a professional level.... after all I am asked to come to their home to play a very important part in their child's life. I feel grateful for the families that have allowed me to take part in their child's special day.  Thanks to ALL those that have hired me.

It is also important to work closely with other professional face painters.  At large public events, I am willing to team up with other professional face painters.

  *Professional Face Painters... only use FDA face paints, they are insured,  have registered business,  they do continuing education,  they know the face painting market.

Some paints used by professional face painters...  Snazaroo, Paradise, Wolfe, Kryolan, Ben Nye, Paradise.  
For face paints...they must be waterbased... AND FDA approved!  

If you are interested in starting a face painting business...please feel free to email me or call any time.  Love to help the world of face painting grow!

  If I am not available on the date that you request... I'd be happy to refer another professional face painter in the area.

Trading Faces
 Face & Body Art Painting by Monica
Milford, NH

My children have enjoyed painting my face too!

Why Choose Trading Faces?
I go extra steps to maintain a healthy-safe painting environment. I only using professional face paints. Professional face paints are safe, and gentle. I have painted several children w/skin conditions, and they have had no reaction to the paints I use. REMEMBER...it is in the PRACTICE, not the paints, that cause cross contamination.  (If a child is sick, I suggested to have their arm or hand painted.)  So, for added health and safety measures .....

Each child will have their own disposable face sponge for full or half face painting.
If a child chooses to have their lips painted a disposable applicator is used.
I use the only waterbased FDA approved professional face paints.  It is safe, non-toxic.  And  it washes off easily with water and mild soap.  Generally, it does not stain clothing.
