about us

I’m Leah Reddell, owner of Face Fiesta!

I’m a professional face painter, henna and body artist working throughout Denver and Boulder, Colorado.

My adventure with Face Fiesta began in January of 2003.  I began my face painting business in the Boulder area, and things quickly grew to serve the entire Denver / Front Range community (and beyond!)

I’m proud to have trained with such well-known artists as Olivier Zeger, Melanie Siedsma, and the Wolfe Brothers. In henna art, I have trained with Pam Trent, Erika Harrison, and Deborah Brommer.

I have attended and taught at multiple face and body painting conventions (FPBA and FABAIC) since 2007, representing Amerikan Body Art as their Glitter Girl (bringing all things sparkly the masses!)

Over the past decade, Face Fiesta has grown to include a vibrant team of professional face painters, body artists and entertainers, proud to work with high-profile clients such as Google, Disney, Microsoft and many more.

More about my face painting and event services…

I have an extensive repertoire of face painting and henna designs that I can modify according to your needs – spending extra time on the perfect, fantastic face for the birthday boy or girl, or working quickly and beautifully for the high-volume event.

I have used Face Fiesta several times for company parties and Leah has been so amazing to work with. We have had great feedback from our guests and her artwork is beautiful.

I use only water-based face paints made by Mehron, Wolfe FX, Kryolan, and FAB.

All of these paints comply with FDA regulations and wash off easily with soap and water. I make all of my own henna, using only the safest, all-natural ingredients.


And it’s not just face-painting…

No matter what your entertainment needs are, Face Fiesta can bring together a fabulous and professional team of party entertainers – from balloon modellers to tarot card readers, stilt-walkers to caricature artists, we work only with the best.

Let us know what you have in mind, and Face Fiesta will be sure to make your event fun and memorable!
