About Us

"A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. ..."

How We Began..

Painted peacock was established 5 years ago. I started painting as a need to do something whist being a FT mother of 2 young children. After working as a supervisor in a ceramics workshop, i needed to do something for creative for myself, that allowed me to be a mum first and foremost , but that could also fit with my creative spirit and manage my hours around the full time job of motherhood.

I trained at 'The face painting shop' in Essex.  Following on with some other top up courses and found that i took to face painting easily, practicing on my children, friends and family.

Since then painted peacock has gone from strength to strength. We now offer kids face painting parties, glitter tattoos, adult festival face painting and our newest adventure 'The Glitter Girlz',


The Glitter Girlz ( est 2018) are a team of professionally trained glitter makeup artists. We have specially designed glitter packs which allow us to be totally mobile and work through an entire venue rather than being stood at a Glitter Bar or station. This is especially useful in large venues. We currently work at The Newmarket Race course for the music events and we also glitter many wedding receptions and private parties.

Painted Peacock Ethos..

We are extremely conscious of our impact on our local environment and the world as a whole, so we strive to use only vegan friendly professional water based face paints and now we will only use 100% biodegradable cosmetic glitters. They cost more money but we feel safe in the knowledge that we are not damaging local wildlife or marine life in the process.

We feel that it is an investment worth making and we can still use sparkle without having a conscience. We understand that this is important to our customers too so please find more information on our biodegradable glitters by clicking here.
