My name is Michelle Winn
- the owner of Fairytale & Fun Faces Ltd.
I have loved art all my life and came across face painting by chance. This “Job” has fulfilled my creative needs and desire to give back to the community.
My chance meeting was with an established face painter called Jess Chellew, who gave me an opportunity to learn face painting - I decided to just give it a go, I had nothing to lose. She trained and mentored me into this business with patience and generosity.
With extensive practice and with great training I went along into Mirror, Mirror on the Wall and as they say “I’ve never looked back”.
My passion is in working with children and creating magic. It is truly wonderful to see the children once their faces are painted. Their smiles are priceless, and that’s where the magic begins.
I absolutely love what I do and I feel very lucky and privileged to have found something which I believe gives a special magic to people of all ages.
I have an amazingly supportive husband, which in turn allows me to do this creative art as a job. We also have gorgeous twin girls, who have been, and still are, my wonderful canvases to practice on.
I’m fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to work with lots of children at any time, therefore have learnt to produce art on faces quickly without compromising what the children want.
This is only a glimpse of who I am, so I hope it allows you to know why I do what I do.
