Who is Shannon Fennell?

I am an international award winning professional make-up artist with credits in film, television,
theatre and editorial.  My face painting book "Your Face or Mine" was published in 2007 by
Snazaroo USA Inc. and is available worldwide.  I offer a multitude of make-up related services and
retail instructional products for face painters.

Some of my awards include 2005 International Face Painter of the Year, 2006 Winner of Fantasy
Worldwide Face Painting Contest in Putte, Belgium, Second Place at the 2007 US Body Painting
Festival, as well as over 70 other awards and prizes.

I am an artist in other mediums too, creating art, props, costumes and customized items for a
variety of purposes and clients.
What do I do?

I love creative projects and do everything from
wedding make-up to custom prosthetic
appliances, large scale international sporting
events to individual appointments at
Halloween, birthday parties to trade shows
and large festivals.  No job too big or too

With over two decades of professional
experience I can produce the results you need
for your film production, public event and/or
your child's birthday party.  Face painting for a
small group of children to large festivals or
fairs to providing a make-up crew for a full
scale theatrical production -

discuss your make-up needs.

Where do I work?

I am based in Ajax, Ontario, Canada and work throughout the Durham Region.

I am willing to travel to teach anywhere, as long as expenses are covered, please
contact me to

I am mobile and can work at your location or on location.  For straight make-up application all I
require is a surface to set-up on in an area with good light, as I bring my own chair.  For outdoor
shoots I am able to work out of my vehicle in good weather conditions.  For face painting I require
a table and two chairs of equal height, and if outdoors shelter is required (please see General
Booking Information under the
Services tab.)  There are some limitations depending on services
required to be performed, so please
contact me to discuss.

Travel charges are applicable outside of a prescribed area, and are advised prior to booking

I take individual appointments throughout the year.  Halloween appointments can be booked at
any time and I highly recommend booking as early as possible -  even if you aren't sure of your
date or requirements contact me to get on the list for first choice of time/date!
