We booked Mona for our inaugural Famil Day event in College, and she was definitely the most popular of all the entertainment acts!  So much so that we offered to pay Mona to say an extra hour and a half which she very kindly agreed to do.  The quality of Mona's painting was incredible and she was so quick, it took her 5 minutes to do a beautiful floral painting over the eye and less than 10 minutes to do a full faced tiger!  The added extra was that Mona was so enthusiastic and professional and was fantastic with the children (and the adults!) who wanted their faces painting.  We would highly recommend Mona and we will definitely be using her for our future events. Thank you Mona!

Thank you to Mona for such a fantastic party yesterday. Amazing as always! xxx
Nikki, Oxford

I booked Mona for a Winter Ball at Radley College in January 2012. I could not believe how popular she was; I suspect over half of the guests had something done. Within half an hour of her being there, the Ball was lifted by guests, aged 18 - 80, running around with the most elegant and elaborate patterns, pictures and designs on their faces, arms and backs. Mona is an extremely talented and bullet-fast face painter. Moreover she is an absolute delight to work with and was adored by the guests; she was fun, creative and lovely. I cannot think of an event that would not be enhanced by Mona, and will certainly invite her back.
Ed Tolputt, Radley College, Abingdon

Dear Mona, Thank you so much for coming to our party and making the children feel at ease. We all loved the paintings and tattoos which we took on to other parties, and they’re still going! with best regards
Barbara Calderwood, Manager, Hamptons International, Oxford

“Thanks Mona for coming along to our Freshers’ Fair- the students loved your work and we have got loads of great photos from the event. I will be in touch about any future events and will definitely recommend your excellent service to friends and colleagues!”
Jenny Hill - Oxford Cherwell College

Mona recently provided her face painting skills for our branch Halloween Party. Of the various activities we had on that evening, Mona was the only one that had a consistent queue. Her skills quality of work were amazing, she was incredibly quick and lots of fun to go with it. The service she provided was raved about by all who attended the party for days afterwards. We will definitely be using her again for future parties. If you want a face painter, don't look any further - your guests will not be disappointed
Adam Hildreth - Waitrose Wallingford Branch

Mona is fantastic! She painted 40 girls and boys at my daughters 13th birthday party. The children all adored her with comments such as " this is the best face painting ever!
Jane, Oxford

Wow! What a party for my 6 year old Birthday! Mona arrived promptly to set up and painted anything the children asked for - from amazing rainbows and ladybirds to sensational snakes and pirate parrots and crocodiles. She worked with effortless precision and all the children were so amazed and happy with what they had painted - 26 extremely contented smiley faced children! Mona even painted some of the mummies at the party - so they were excited and felt very much part of the party too! We will definitely book Mona again - such a professional, highly skilled happy lady! Thank you again from Oscar and us all
Kathy - Witney, Oxfordshire

Mona is without doubt a huge asset to any party. I have been lucky enough to see her in action at a few events and had no hesitation in booking one of her mini makeover parties. All the girls had a fantastic time: Mona puts everyone at their ease and is fun, efficient and generous with her time and her talent. I can't wait to throw another party just so that I can book her again!!
Nikki Newhouse - Oxford

Mona, thank you for being extremely professional, flexible and most of all talented! Despite the (very) last minute booking I was extremely pleased that all my requirements were met with such little fuss. Will definitely recommend you in the future. Thank you again.
David - RAF Benson

Mona came along to my son's 5th birthday party, and she was fantastic! A pleasure to have around and her work is stunning!
Many thanks.
Emma - Bicester

Hi Mona, Just to say thank you for all the face painting and tattoos you did at the party on Saturday. You did so well to get all the children at the party done within the two hours and the artwork was superb. Jack who has always refused to have anything like that done before loves his glitter dragon tattoo and was refusing to go anywhere near a shower because he didn't want to get it wet! The entertainer commented at the end that you were one of the most easy going face painters he has ever worked with. If I organise a party again I will give you a call! Many thanks.
Nerys, Chilton, Oxfordshire

Mona, thanks for a fabulous event. I think it is fair to say your skill bowled everyone over, from the young to the very old.
Steve Betts, Stagecoach (Oxford) Social Club

Mona, thanks so much... Everyone thought you were amazing and so talented!!! We will definitely be in touch in the future!!
Stephanie, RAF Benson, Oxfordshire

Thank you very much for a super afternoon everyone was amazed at how beautiful the paintings were and how quick you were at it, we will certainly recommend you to other people.
Tall Trees Caring Homes, Burford

Thank you Mona for face painting at our Summer Party. You have such a wide variety of things you can paint, and everyone looked fabulous!  If we ever have another garden party, we will definitely be in touch!
Sarah, Student Rep from Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford

Mona, We are so pleased with the party and especially your amazing face painting, everyone was singing your praises and asking me for your number!  And most importantly Minnie loved you and her pink tiger face."
Amy, Burford

The glitter tattoos were a great hit at my daughters 8th birthday party - they were beautiful and lasted well. Mona is delightful - warm and friendly the girls were all really comfortable with her."
Julie, Oxford

The girls absolutely adored your beautiful and individual designs, and we were greatly impressed by your artistry and professionalism as well as by the way in which you managed both to complete the face painting and to provide glitter tattoos for so many excited young girls in such a short space of time."
Marc, Oxford

Hi Mona, I just wanted to say thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon. All the children loved the face painting, and so many parents came up to me and said how great they were. I will definitely be recommending you to friends!"
Catherine, Oxford

“The baby was moving around a lot while Mona was painting, but it was really relaxing.  The painting had especially impressed two-year-old son.    The day after, he kept lifting up my top, looking at the picture and kissing my belly.  It was just such a fabulous way to remember this time and we’ll be putting the picture up on the wall.”
Steph, Horspath, Oxfordshire - Steph had a bump painting session.

Mona recently attended our Open Day at Crocodiles of the World in Oxfordshire, and she skilfully painted colourful reptiles and other wonderful sparkling creations on children and adults alike. Everyone made really positive comments about her designs and some said her work was the best they had ever seen. She was very gentle and warm towards everyone, but the thing that really impressed us all was when she happily accommodated a family's request to take her materials outside and paint a chameleon on a young boy in a wheelchair. That willingness to go the extra mile to make someone happy is what makes Mona different and special.  We will definitely be using her again for future events!"
Crocodile Education and Conservation Centre, Witney, Oxfordshire

Many thanks for Sunday. You made the day very special for Bella as she loved her face painting and tattoos!! Quite the little Princess!! Reluctantly she had to wash her face off last night but she is very proud to still have her tattoo to show all her friends at Nursery today! Everyone was very impressed by your artwork, both children and adults! You also were a perfect blend for all ages and made the whole experience very positive for us. I would without hesitation recommend you to all my friends and really hope to see you again!
Susie, Tetsworth, Oxfordshire

Mona is a brilliant addition to any children's party. She is incredibly quick, producing stunning designs on very wriggly 4-year olds. Girls at our party came away with beautiful butterflies and flowers on their faces, and even the usually reluctant boys received fabulous dragons and tiger masks.
Victoria, Oxford

So good we booked her twice! Thanks Mona another great event today.
Friends of Oxford High School

Mona, Thank you so much for agreeing to help face paint at the Oxford Children in Need night. The evening was a huge success and a lot of the credit goes to you. Everyone was very impressed with your fantastic creations and all the faces were unique. There were a lot of painted faces around that evening of either adults manning the phones or their children and to top it all you raised a large amount of money for children in need. I will definitely be recommending you and your business card takes pride of place on the work notice board.
Angela, British Gas Business, Oxford

I would just like to say a massive thank you for coming to the rescue for my daughters birthday party yesterday. You managed to either face paint or glitter tattoo everyone including the parents and they all said that they were fantastic. You were wonderful with the children and they all loved you. All the parents were asking for your details at the end for future party's. From a personal point of view you made my daughters birthday extra special and I can't thank you enough. If anyone is after a face painting artist I will recommend you 100% We will see you same time next year.
Maria, Didcot, Oxfordshire

Mona arrived early to set up (and in a great witches costume) and was ready when the children arrived. All the children who had tattoos and/or face painting were delighted, as were the parents. I would definitely ask Mona to join us again at our next party.
Anamaria, Little Milton, Oxfordshire

Wow - we were so impressed with Mona's work! She created amazing face-paintings and was so speedy too. We all loved the glitter tattoos and quite a few adults were queuing up at the end of the party to get one done as well, even Grandma! Lots of very happy little and big customers who won't want to wash off their little masterpieces for a long time. A big thank you to Mona for adding a real extra sparkle - literally - to our kids' party. I would happily recommend her to anyone who wants a friendly, skillful and fabulous face-painter."
Vicki, Wallingford, Oxfordshire

May I state that everyone who attended the reception were highly delighted and commented on how much they enjoyed the face painter.  Mona, the entertainer personally stated that in all the years he had worked as a Magician you were certainly the best Face Painter he had come across.  No need to tell you I raved about my butterfly and it was indeed a shame to wash it off on the Saturday evening. Thank you again for all your efforts. May I state in all the years that I have organized these children’s events, over than 10 years, Little Precious is the only company that I have requested to attend for a second time – you must be doing something right!!
Marina St Jean, Business School, University of Oxford

Mona, Thank you for the wonderful face painting and glitter tattoo's you did at my 40th birthday party. Due to your enthusiasm and warmth the children loved you.  All my  guests commented on the quality of your work.  I can highly recommend you.  Many thanks."
Lisa Judge, Great Horwood, Milton Keynes

Thank you so much for yesterday, the day was a great success.  Everyone commented on how impressed they were with your work and creativity, I don't think the term Face Painting does justice to your service, it is really more art - the only problem was persuading the kids to clean their faces at bedtime!  I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and look forward to the next opportunity to book you!
Lucy Hammond, Qlikview, Venue in Oxfordshire

Thank you again for painting at Will's party - everyone was absolutely delighted with their face painting, especially my Mum! And Will was reluctant to wash off his tattoo, he loved it so much
Emma Brown,Oxford

It was great to have you at Amelia's party and everyone said how great you were! Including my nieces who are now saying that they would like you to be at their next birthday parties!!!!  Amelia had a great time and is holding onto her tattoo which is still very much there! She did go to bed with her face painting on also, obviously that was washed the next day!
Sue Johnson, Fewcott, Oxfordshire

Mona did face painting and glitter tattoos for a 70th birthday party at which there were guests of all ages.  With the combination of the tattoos and the face painting she appealed to all age the groups and created a real carnival atmosphere! Thanks Mona
Alix, Rycote Farm, Oxfordshire

The Story Museum would like to thank Little Precious face painting for a colourful contribution to Alice’s Day 2010. Thank you Mona for transforming so many children and adults too into their favourite Wonderland character.
Story Museum, Oxford

From dinosaurs, green tigers, unicorns and Cinderella - the face paintings were absolutely wonderful. Thank you for helping to make their parties so much fun!
Gemma Wade, Great Heasley, Oxfordshire

Mona, Thank you so much for all your help with face painting and hard work on the day! We really couldn't have done it without you! From all the nursery staff
John Watson Nursery School, Wheatley, Oxford

Mona was fantastic, she was a fast face painter producing little masterpieces, and the children looked amazing.  The best face painter I have ever seen in action my son Hector had an amazing party thanks to Mona"
Sasha Harvey, Cuddesdon, Oxford

Mona delighted a whole school sports day crowd with her fantastic face painting skills - she worked very quickly, creating beautiful and accomplished designs. She is an artist who chooses to work on faces - a cut above the rest. Thank you Mona!
