Jodi Carr has been providing high-quality
entertainment - face painting, caricature sketching, henna art,
glitter tattoos, and more - for private parties, special events
and corporate gatherings throughout the San Francisco and Monterey
Bay areas for more than 20 years.
A native of California, Jodi studied at San Francisco Art Institute
and San Jose State University where she earned a degree in graphic
design with an illustration concentration. She also studied at Scottsdale
Artists School in Scottsdale, Arizona and at the Academy of Art
College in San Francisco, California. Jodi was named Artist of the
Month by the Face Painting and Body Art Association and was
also was one of the artists who painted the faces for the all-new
Klutz Face Painting Book.
Jodi practices her award winning facepainting for clients nationwide.
She teaches beginner to advanced face painting in the USA, Europe,
and the UK in private workshops and at convention classes. Her work
is frequently featured in local and international face and body
Jodi can also bring her popular exotic mehndi art (what we in the
west call henna tattoos,) to your event. The design is achieved
by painting on the skin with a green paste made from crushed henna
leaves. The paste is allowed to dry and remain on the skin for an
hour or two. When it is removed there is a light orange stain on
the skin. That light orange will oxidize and become darker over
the next 24 to 48 hours until it is a rich red-brown shade. That
is your henna tattoo and it will last for about 7 to 10 days and
fade away gradually. Jodi's safe and natural henna recipe has just
four ingredients: henna, lemon juice, cadjuput oil and lavender
A new variation of face and body painting that is sweeping the nation,
glitter tattoos are another fun option. A design is painted on the
skin with a made-for-skin adhesive, then glitter is applied on top
for a fantastic sparkling tattoo. Glitter tattoos last for about
3 days. You can swim and bathe in them so they are perfect for pool
parties and company picnics. Jodi would love to come to your party
and decorate your guests with amazing hand painted glitter tattoos.
Jodi is also an adept caricature artist, and has been drawing traditional
pen-on-paper caricatures at corporate events and private parties
since 1981. Her fast and flattering drawing style, along with her
friendly personality keeps her clients calling back year after year.
