Tracy Kiggen started ARTovator in 2008 and came up with the name by creating a portmanteau of the words “art” and “innovator”. She is fully insured, licensed and is the most popular face painter in Orange County. One of her face paintings was chosen for a live performance of Duran Duran in LA.
“I am originally from South Africa, where I had such a great childhood, that I yearned to help create special moments for others. I take great pride in my work and really love my job. It is a valuable moment when you are done painting and see pure joy on that child’s face.”
ARTovator has face painted for Whole Foods, McDonalds, Subway, The Montage, Albertson’s, St. Regis Hotel, Hyatt Regency, The Marriott, Paramount Pictures, etc. ARTovator is also the highest rated entertainment company on Yelp. Tracy is currently the resident face painter for the Anaheim Ducks ice hockey team.
We can provide excellent artists such as face painters, balloon twisters, caricaturists, glitter tattoos, airbrush tattoos, clowns, or costumed characters for reasonable rates per hour. All our entertainers are fully insured and follow a strict hygiene standard.

Amazing face painting at my daughter's 6th birthday! Over 20 of my guests commented on how beautiful the face painting was and how the designs were incredible! Very professional and highly recommended!
Tracy did an amazing job painting faces at my daughters 2nd birthday. Her talent is pretty amazing and she was able to meet every child's request. I will definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends.
“Your face painter and balloon twister made my nephew's 7th birthday a true success amongst all the 1st graders and even the parents.
