Since her humble beginnings in 1990, Heather Joy has gone from a teenager making a summertime living drawing caricatures at Six Flags Over Texas, to studying art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, then spending 5 years in Las Vegas making a living as caricature artist, and finally settling in Austin, returning to her Texas homeland to continue building her career. She recently spent the summer of 2013 managing the Caricature and Face Panting booth for Goofy Faces at the New England Aquarium in Boston, MA.
Heather draws amazing caricatures, her 20+ years of experience is apparent as she captures in an instant the likeness and personality of each person she draws with just a flick of her marker on the page and a few swipes of color!
Since 2006, Heather Joy also does amazing face and body painting! Using brush-and-sponge technique or airbrush, she only uses theatrical-grade FDA approved paints and cosmetic glitters, always careful to keep her kit clean and her applicators sterilized. She is gentle and quick, transforming her models into amazing beings of fantasy!
