About AFace4U

Emma's passion for face and body painting began in 2003 in the UK. Emma was inspired by two painters she saw working at a village fair and so began her journey into the world of painting and creating her business AFace4u. Emma and her husband and two daughters made the move to New Zealand in 2005 where she has built a thriving business.

In 2006 Emma competed in the New Zealand Body Art Awards winning 1st place in the fluorescent category and a 2nd place in the Hand Painted section. She is a multi award winning artist and has listed her achievements below.

Her most prestigious accolade was being chosen to represent New Zealand in China in 2009 at "Shanghai Vogue Life Carnival" to compete and show case Body Art to Asia, she was one of only 20 chosen from around the world.

In 2003 Emma and a group of 4 others attempted to set a record for painting as many faces as humanly possible in 1 hour using a minimum of 3 colours per face. This was recorded in the 2005 Guinness World Record Book.

Just recently Emma has branched out in to the World of wearable Art, in 2011 she gained a 3rd place in the group section of the Rotorua Wearable Creationz with her entry "Funky Town Chicks" In 2012 she entered the Thames Pohutukawa Festival of Wearable Art winning 2nd place in the "Top to Bottom" category with her entry "Hot in Pink" 1st place in the "Head to Toe" section with her piece entitled "Forest Guardian" she then went on to take out the overall Supreme winner.

She loves kids parties, large groups and corporate events as much as she loves the most intimate painting of a pregnant tummy.

So with her creative mind and award winning brush skills she is quite simply doing what she loves.
