Meet Our Members: FairyDust Faces

Part of the mission of Mom's Time Out is to showcase local and mom-run businesses. Through these "Meet Our Members" posts, we hope to provide you introduction to our fabulous members and their businesses. Without further ado, here is Karen Mercer, founding Artist of FairyDust Faces!

Karen first started drawing as a child. Her favorite subjects were birds. All kinds of birds; birds in flight, birds eating worms, birds with huge plumage. At 10 she began copying, line for line the works of Michelangelo and da Vinci. It wasn't until after years of oil and acrylic painting, followed by charcoal figure drawing and award winning work in cake decorating that Karen brought her skills to face painting.

As an award winning face painter Karen, a mother of five kids ranging from ages seven to twenty-four, excels at entertaining the young and young at heart with her captivating personality, dazzling face painting and story telling skills. You can find her at local festivals in and around Tallahassee, Florida including the Winter Festival and Springtime Parades, Havana's Pumpkin Festival, Georgia's Mule days, and is the exclusive Face Painter for Lofty Pursuit's birthday parties.

FairyDust Faces also offers a special service for moms-to-be, ‘baby bump’ painting or henna belly art is perfect for baby showers and celebratory photo shoots. A keepsake that will last a lifetime!

FairyDust Faces comes to you in Tallahassee, Havana, Quincy, Bainbridge, Cairo, Thomasville, Perry, Monticello and Madison and provides dazzling and dramatic face painting, water resistant glitter and airbrush tattoos, henna body art and storytelling. Karen and her team are available for private parties, summer camps, school functions, grand opening, company picnics, photo shoots, fashion shows and just about any celebration you can think of.

Parents everywhere will be happy to know that FairyDust Faces uses the industry’s safest FDA compliant professional cosmetic grade face paints and glitter. The young and young at heart can let their imaginations soar and become anything from butterflies, cats and tigers to princesses and pirates. Experience the Magic of FairyDust!
