About Me

My name is Tammy and I am the lead artist and owner of Swish a Face & Body Art. I started my face painting and body art career in 2013 when my son’s school needed a face painter for the day. Hooked completely from day one and I’ve been honing my skills ever since. As the mother of 2 adorable children I understand how important a birthday party or event is to the host and it is my mission to provide excellent and professional services for our clients.

I completed my hairdressing apprenticeship in 1996 and I expanded my qualifications by completing Make-up Artistry at The Brisbane Academy of Make Up in 2014. I have managed and taught staff in many salons in Brisbane and travelled the world working as a hairdresser aboard cruise ships. Amateur photography is another of my passions as you will see in the imagery presentation throughout the website.

With a background and still working within the hair and beauty industry I know how important it is to make a person feel special and know how much a simple smile means. I incorporate all my skills in the services we offer, which allows for great diversity for our clients.

Everyone loved my 'Dia De Los Muertos' sugar skull face! Tammy did an excellent job.


My son can't stop talking about his Spiderman design from his party. Thank-you!


The dance party mask was awesome, all my friends and I loved it!


Tammy was wonderful with my challenge child and his sensitive skin. I recommend her to everyone.
