SmileyOrca Face Painting started years ago with Lisa Smiley volunteering for events and schools. Since then the business has spanned 2 different states (Oregon & California, OR and CA = ORCA) over the course of many years. The business has evolved and changed with time but happy faces are always the goal. Starting in Oregon the business got its foundation in good customer service and skilled artistic work.
When the business took off in 2005, Smiley Orca had booths in the Cannery Row Plaza and the entrance to the Old Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf. While operating the two locations the business worked many festivals and events around the Central California Coast/Monterey Bay Area. You can still find us at some events throughout the year like the Gilroy Garlic festival and the Monterey County Fair which we have been providing our services at since 2006.
In 2011 SmileyOrca was invited to become the sole provider of Face Painting on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and moved the base of operations from Monterey to Santa Cruz. Currently there are two booths open in the summer and one booth operating year round following the schedule of the boardwalk. Come get a marvelous facepaint at SmileyOrca Facepainting on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk today!
