Kathy Fields is a Bendigo face painting mum who started painting friends and family just for fun. Frustrated with what was being passed for ‘good face paint’ she now sources the best quality paints in Australia and around the world. She has completed multiple professional face painting courses and stays up to date on the latest techniques from face painting mentors both within Australia and overseas.
“I began more intensively face painting in 2009. For me it’s a passion, some of my family would say it’s more of an obsession!”
Mike Fields is Kathy’s husband. He has worked with children in many different capacities including as a camp counsellor in America teaching kids fencing (as in sword fighting) plus building and flying fully functional model rockets. “At over 6 feet tall, Mike is one of the biggest kids I know!” says Kath with a chuckle.
Mike is a face painter, balloon twister, bubblologist and magician.
Together, Kath and Mike have travelled around Australia; funded by their street performing. Both are qualified toastmasters (public speakers) which comes in handy with storytelling and general entertaining.
Both carry current Public liability insurance and Working With Children Checks
