Owner and original artist behind Painted Pinup. A born and raised Texas girl with a deep love for bygone eras. Kelli has now moved to the Fort Worth area and is serving the community there! A mom of 3, geek (her superpower of choice is the Care Bear Stare), and lover of all things sparkly. She's a firm believer that we need frivolity and love in the world, and that life's too short to have brown hair. She first began face painting in 2011, as a volunteer for her church and local special needs organization called S.H.A.R.E. 


Once she was introduced to the professional side of face and body art in 2016, she jumped in with both feet and hit the ground running; spending hours studying videos of professional artists to learn technique and design before enrolling in the International Face Painting School. She LOVES her career and feels blessed to have found a career that impassions her the way it does.


In addition to face painting, she has the privilege of writing for one of the leading professionals in the industry as the English language blog writer for Olga Murasev’s International Face Painting School at

She is dedicated to learning the latest techniques and ever-improving the skills of her and her team.
