Victoria Squire - owner / artist of Big Grins Face Painting & Body Art

About Owner / Artist

Hello! My name is Victoria Squire and I provide event entertainment in the Maryland and DC area. I am a face painter, body artist, and balloon twister with a BA in art and graphic design and a MS in management in marketing victoriasquire.com.

Some history

Life has always involved art in some way. I have always been interested in bright colors, transformations, connecting people to art, and making others smile. The first time I face painted was as a teen volunteer at a church event and I loved it. Many years later I was drawn to professional face painting and body art services. Although I've been painting most of my life, I've had the pleasure and priveledge of getting additional training from some of the industry's leading face and body artists and balloon sculptors. I continue to explore the latest techniques and makeup to make sure clients get the best.

A little background on the owner/artist

I am a Marylander. I am originally from the Baltimore/ Towson area, but have been living in Montgomery County for the last 15 years. In addition to painting, I enjoy fish keeping, swimming, DIY projects, and making music.

I've had the priviledge of providing party services for great clients in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia. This site is a showcase of a few selections of my best work. Feel free to explore some examples of our face painting and body art and contact me if you want to chat!

Our mission is to provide an entertaining, magical experience through face painting, body art, and balloon twisting. Your guests will feel special!

Why we face paint and balloon twist!

I like how face painting and body art allows people to express another side of themselves and it draws people to one another- which in turn raises confidence. I have had the priviledge of painting kids and adults, having them relax while being painted, and seeing the looks on their faces when they see how great they look. When I first started, I didn't realize how entertaining face painting and body art in and of itself can be. Event guests love gathering around watching their friends and family transform or the art unfold. I love being able to facilitate that.

I have grown to love balloon twisting as well. I love being able to wow children and adults alike. They're always asking me, "How did you do that?!"
