The Artist


“April-Anna did a fantastic job at my daughters 4th birthday party, All the children were very happy and everyone was very impressed with her designs and natural way with children. Definitely hiring again!”

– Ashley Scourse, 2016

“I hired April-Anna for my daughters eighth birthday this past September (2015). We had twelve kids ranging in age of 4 to 8. I was extremely impressed with how calm and professional she was during the two hour session. The children were delighted at the range of designs and themes. I would definitely hire her again.”

– Alison Meldrum

April-Anna’s make up art services are extremely unique in style and detail.
We were extremely impressed with her work and her commitment to our school (UTT)
She works with so much passion, enthusiasm, and devotion.
We highly recommend her!” – Yael, Spring 2016


Approximately 10 children per hour, depending on circumstances. Face Painting Services are suitable for all ages. I use Make-up Forever, Mehron, & MAC face painting products.

Hourly rates apply;

Residential Pricing: 1 hour minimum of $100 on the Island of Montreal. $180 for 2 hours. For Laval there is a $25 travel fee.

If you are a business, school or daycare, it is a 2 hour minimum for all bookings.

Out of Town: 3 hour minimum plus travel expenses.

If you want customized designs, I can do this but understand that new designs take me longer, approx. 8 to 15 minutes per face if I have never done it before.

If I am not doing customized work, I provide a selection of choices for the children to choose from that I know can paint in 4 to 7 minutes each (sometimes 10 minutes if the child won’t stay still). I don’t offer mainstream characters from popular culture in my selection unless specially requested ahead of time because I like to encourage imagination & originality.

Deposits & Cancellation Policy:

There is a 20% deposit required for all bookings. Cancellation policies from contract to contract are different depending on how big the contract is, how far in advanced you booked & the time of year (peak season versus the slow season). My cancellation policy for all bookings is if you don’t give sufficient warning (aka enough time for me to replace your contract with another contract) then 50% of the booking is owed (which you can use as a credit for fine art paintings, photography & commissions). For some contracts this means there is a 7 day cancellation policy, for other contracts it might be a 3 day cancellation warning.

I will never cancel on a client and have never had to. If for some reason I cannot personally come, I will send another talented artist (but will update you about what is happening as it happens) in my stead.
