Lil' Bitter Pixie Face Painting & Body Art
Lead Artist Judith Bautista / Kahlovera
Art for me has been a passing of right. I was born into this world with a wild passion for art and it is my mother who I feel I have to thank for it.
My earliest memories are of waking up Saturday mornings to join my mom who would be up at the crack of dawn to work on her oil paintings. She instilled in me this infinite love for the arts. Since childhood my love for art has only grown stronger and has opened many doors for me. In my senior year of high school my art was entered into a competition, landing me with the winning prize of a round trip to visit the White House in Washington D.C. This recognition opened my eyes and geared me to work in association with other influential artist who challenged me to learn face painting. Little did I know that challenge would one day turn into such a profitable business.
I have delved into various forms of art, such acrylic paintings, jewelry making, paper mache, ceramics, drawing, crafting and any other form of art I can get my crafty hands on; but I find that the art of face painting has had thee most instant rewards because of the beautiful little smiles I get from children, when they see my art on their faces.
As a profession, I work and have been working with children for 15 years with the Los Angeles School District.
I started as an art instructor for children in the L..A.'S Best After School Enrichment program in Boyle Heights and am now the Site Coordinator at my site. I oversee a large group of 110 little nutty kids. Needless to say, I love children. The experiences I have gained from working so closely with children for over a decade have taught me a lot about the importance of making them feel safe, valued and heard. When I am face painting the little person in my chair is the one in charge. No persistent parent can force me to paint anything other than what the little guy in my chair feels his little heart truly desires. Children are creative geniuses and if they are not afraid to express who they are freely without inhibitions who are we to instil self doubt in them..
My experience with face painting spans over 14 years but it wasn't until 2011 that I decided I would intentionally invest myself into creating it as a brand.
I am happy to say it was a great move. Lil' Bitter Pixie Face Painting has been going strong from day one and the demand for service is greater to that which only one woman can provide so I've decided to expand it. I now have a team of 2 other artist who are reliable, dependable, professional and extremely talented. I am confident that as a team we can provide you with the best quality, fun, colorful experience. Smiles on our clients faces are our top priority and we are ready to be forever part of your families best memories. We are n the business of bringing smiles to all your special events with colorful fun quality face painting. Thank You for Your loyal love & support.

My name is Nancy,
Halloween and Day of the Dead are the two holidays that lead me to become in tuned with my creative side. Applying makeup for these two holidays Is where my obsession for makeup first developed. When I realized I had an ability to create different looks I was intrigued. Over the years I have worked at becoming a professional make-up artist. I am fortunate enough to have converted my passion into my career! It is because of my love for Halloween that I decided to pursue my interest in special effects make-up. I have taken a variety of courses in special effects make-up in which I have developed my practices in prosthetics and airbrush. Day of the Dead has is also a favorite, being that it brings me closer to my roots. I love face painting elaborate Calaveras, It allows me to truly use my creativity.
