Our Story

Best friends Siobhan and Emma co-founded GoFacepaint at 13 years old as a fun little passion project to work on outside of school and theatre rehearsals. They’ve always loved to entertain, create, and work with kids, and GoFacepaint made for the perfect outlet!

After two years of working odd jobs for shows, storefronts, and schools, the girls brought on two new employees and started travelling to home birthday parties. 


Siobhan and Emma then spent the pandemic working behind the scenes to improve their skills and refine their business practices to transform GoFacepaint into their full time job. Now, with 8 artists, Siobhan and Emma are so thrilled to bring the business to London and Montreal!

Commitment to Inclusivity

It is one of our primary values to dismantle the patriarchal hegemonies we find to be present in our industry. Face painting has long been a service that feeds into a restrictive gender binary as well as inaccessible to neurodivergent children. We aim to combat this with a gender-responsive and inclusive approach that focuses on the preferences of the child first and foremost! We encourage kids to get any design that makes them happy, and take various accommodative measures to support children with sensory issues or disabilities to get their faces painted.

We are a women-led business and very
proudly an LGBTQ+ friendly and trans-inclusive space.
