Lenore Koppelman is THE BEST KID’S FACE PAINTER ON THE PLANET. She (with RIDICULOUSLY SHORT NOTICE) agreed to be the “entertainment” portion of my son’s hastily-thrown-together 6th birthday party last year, and it could NOT have been a bigger hit. The kids LOVVVVVVVED IT and ooohed and aaaaahed over her artwork. She is delightful, hardworking, and has talent to burn. You will be sad when you have to wash your kid’s face(s). 5 STARS.

Lenore from the Cheeky Chipmunk was the smash hit of my sons 4 year old birthday party. As soon as she arrived she set up and within moments the kids were flocking around her vying to be the first to be painted. She is funny and patient and makes everyone feel like a star while being painted! She even provided little cards on how to best wash of the artwork when guests got home. I would recommend her without hesitation! A+++ experience from start to finish!

Lenore brought her artistic creativity and bubbly fun to our family friendly New Year’s Party. The face-painting added a novel activity that everyone got into... chatting away the night, kids and parents being silly and connecting, and Lenore facilitating with her sunny disposition and laid-back nature. It was a fantastic event and the pictures are of course wonderful — an event we will all remember forever.

The Cheeky Chipmunk painted the lucky children (and some adults) at my daughter’s birthday party. Not only is her artisty absolutely magnificent but she is one of the most personable people on earth, She put the kids at ease, and even the shy ones were eager to get painted. While she is making creative designs come alive on their little faces she also puts giant smiles on them as well. Best party ever!
Brava Lenore!

Lenore is an exceptionally talented face and body painter. She is passionate about her craft and very professional every step of the way. I had the unique experience of having my belly painted by her when I was pregnant with my son. She presented me with different ideas of what to paint beforehand, then created a beautiful image on my big pregnant belly, it was an unforgettable experience! I also hired Lenore to paint at my daughter’s birthday party. She is so great with kids- my daughter and all her friends had so much fun getting painted by her. She had so many great designs that the kids loved- everything from animals to superheroes, to princesses, to made-up creatures that the kids asked for. She also has a great system of giving each child a sticker with a number on it so that they don’t need to wait in line for their turn. The children can run around and enjoy the party, and when their number is called, it is their turn to get painted. It went so smoothly at my daughter’s party, which was a large group of 3 and 4 year olds. I can’t say enough great things about Lenore- The Cheeky Chipmunk, she is truly an outstanding face and body painter!
