Intuit Canada

Intuit has been using the services of Marilyn and the Purple Team for several years now at various family events. We look forward to their presence every time, as they are not only professional and highly skilled, but they also seem to genuinely enjoy themselves at our events. It creates a great atmosphere to have such happy people making our family’s children so happy. The team members are so creative in finding ways to represent the children’s wishes for a particular tattoo or face painting. I would highly recommend their services as a way to bring your event up that extra notch!

Zebra Child Protection Centre

So what does one say about Marilyn Ferrett and the Purple Team? As the CEO of the Zebra Child Protection Centre, we are so very fortunate to have found a partner who is 100% focused on creating amazing moments and memories for children. I recall a young boy – who has since passed away – who attended our Centre’s Kids Christmas Party. His favorite thing in the whole wide world was Spiderman. He adorned a Spiderman shirt the day of the party and Santa Claus’s gift that day was of course, Spiderman web wristbands. As this young boy waited to have his face painted, there was no doubt in his mind that a Spiderman mask was the only way to go. Marilyn was right in the moment with this young boy – making sure his face was painted in the most magnificent Spiderman way. This young boy strutted throughout the party – intent on showing all in attendance that he was the ‘real Spiderman’. When his picture with Santa came off the printer – he was vibrating with delight that his true identity had been captured on ‘film’. Marilyn created this moment for this young boy and a very precious memory for his family.

Organized, engaged and talented are words that I use to describe The Purple Team, under Marilyn’s direction. Thank you Marilyn and The Purple Team for bringing that ‘extra something’ to every event and every child’s face you hold.

Alberta Medical Association

We had a last minute team ­building idea to have airbrushed tattoos of our logo done at our annual planning meetings – as a fun play on “corporate branding”. Despite our late hour request, Marilyn went out of her way to pull it all together for us. We all spent our meetings sporting perfect tattoo representations of our logo, and not only did we have fun, we came up with some of our most creative and innovative ideas to date. Coincidence? I think not…

We’re most grateful to Marilyn for making it happen, and to Andrea for her amazing talent and professionalism. It was an event we’ll never forget, and we highly recommend Beyond Face Painting to other corporate groups who are looking for a unique and fun team building activity for their retreat or planning event.

Autism Speaks Canada

As a charity event planner, we look for activities that deliver joy to families. Beyond Face Painting is the perfect combination of professionalism, quality work, and positive staff members. Their face painting truly is a work of art, and the designs are refreshingly creative. A popular activity, their crowd control is seamless and entertaining on its own. We regard them as top notch in every way!
