Lavinia is by no means a conventional New York entertainer. Having grown up with a penchant for painting and a knack for ultra creative designs, she's the coolest clown in all the town.
Wondering how it all started? Well, the story of how she came to find her calling begins back in 2011 after she was laid off from a local college where she worked as an admissions counselor. She knew she had to figure out how to support her family, but she was also determined to pursue her dreams of becoming an unorthodox artist. What better time to live each day with purpose and passion. The rest is history ...
By combining creativity with an unconventional, non-traditional attitude, Lavinia has carved out quite a unique niche for herself. Her face painting skills are impeccable and her balloon creations are simply perfection. Across party venues, customers rave about her ability to entertain and connect with guests of all ages, including children with special needs. Party guests are most often impressed by her expertise at painting or balloon twisting of caricatures or themes based on their request.
Lavinia is based on Staten Island and serves mostly the New York region. (parts of Jersey as well) Face painting and balloons are perfect forms of entertainment and engagement for kid's parties, corporate events, body paint expos, festivals and so much more.
Schedule your party or event before she gets all booked up!
Very professional and super fast
One of the fastest I’ve ever seen and she is a blast. Hands Down my number 1 pick for any event
Let me just start off with- WOWWWWW!!! Lavinia is NOT your typical face/body painter or balloon twister. If you want the Ferrari of face/body painters you really do NOT need to look any further. I had Lavinia face/body paint and balloon twist at my daughter's Sweet 16. Everyone just stared in awe of her work. You can request your theme or you can leave the creativity totally up to her which I have absolutely NO REGRETS doing. Children, teens, adults; even my 80 year old grandmother waited on line to get her face and arm painted. The detail she uses in the span of 3-4 minutes (if that) is a God-given talent. Lavinia is a beautiful person inside and out and I (along with everyone that was at the party) will be in contact for future events. Oh and her balloon twisting abilities?! Ah-MAZ-INGG. She made a life-size motorcycle that my 3 year old daughter was able to actually step into and drive around the party with. Great quality work you will NOT REGRET. I PROMISE!!!! More...
Booked her for several special occasions over the years. Absolutely the most talented and professional face painter and balloon artist on Staten Island. Gotta Go to Art by Lavinia
I had lavinia come paint at my daughters first birthday. I was referred by a friend on social media and saw her work. It is even more impressive in person!!! She's organized , timely and wonderful with the kiddies! Just about everyone asked for her info!!! The venue also asked for her info to pass out because she's simply amazing!!! Can't wait to use her again!!! More...
Lavinia is the best! She is so talented, fast and unique! I have never seen anything like her work before. She did my sons 5th bday today and everyone was floored by her performance. She is professional, TALENTED and seriously great at what she does. This isn't your average balloon art and face paint! I only wish I wasn't in a rush hosting the party so I could have gotten more body art! Lavinia, you are truly amazing. Thank you so much for making my sons bday fantastic! More...
