About Me

Sweet Loretta entertainment artist, artist, teacher, entrepreneur and lover of life. Welcome to a slice of my world.​

I am a trained face and body painter having invested  in  learning with master artists. I travel to paint, teach and further the art of face and body painting, with emphasis in airbrush, mixed media and FX makeup. 


As a body artist I  paint by appointment in my studio doing private body art sessions, maternity paintings  and body art as a healing art.   


I paint for fortune 500 companies for product releases, media campaigns, private parties and trade shows. I am for hire. 


​I began body painting in 2005.  In 2007 I co-produced the US Body Painting Festival and Competition, the first of its kind in the Americas. I competed as one of two Americans in the World Body Painting Festival 2009 for Face Painting in Austria, ranking 19th.  And  5th in Sponge and Brush Body Painting assisting my friend Mark Reid.


For family entertainment I  work under the  business name High Jinks  Extreme Face Art providing entertainment artists to the Sacramento Valley region, So Placer, Yuba, Sutter, Butte and surrounding areas. My crew and I work throughout northern California, Oregon, Nevada and beyond for special events and festivals.

I also sell face and body art makeup and supplies.  Extreme Makeup FX is an online and eBay store offering face and body painting makeup and supplies along with FX makeup and supplies to face and body painters, photographers, models, theater professionals, makeup artists, home haunters, Halloween lovers, cosplayers and hobby users. 

I  do FX makeup for Halloween lovers and haunts. I do moulage makeup for disaster reenactments such as Every 15 Minutes are regional high schools.
