Educational Programs

"Through face painting programs, Chantal has also successfully targeted social issues like bullying.  She believes, Painting on a piece of paper is one thing, but painting another human being, involving positive social contact where achievement is guaranteed, can be life-altering.  These programs have inspired international communities, which have based their programs on these ideas.  She has also created educational programs designed to tackle waste management, dog safety, numeracy and literacy in primary schools and has presented Technology shows to high schools throughout the Northern Territory."  Principal Northern Territory School

Face Art Book

"As an educational guide, I have been delighted with the results achieved from working with the book.  This is a practical guide on make-up made easy that no school or child organization should be without." Principal - Northern Territory Regional School

International Face Painting Workshops

"Chantal from the Land down under was worth the trip alone.  I just did 1 class with her.  Chantal is not a 'Fairy'.  She is an 'Angel'.  I think every family performer, not just face painter, should sit in on her class to refresh, inspire, and establish a correct foundation for which we all need to have.  Chantal reminded me that there are times and places where if we really are going to do the right thing by our lines of waiting kids, we need to make sure they ALL get painted, recognized and touched." Laughing Matters, Paul Chuckles US International face panting convention 2003

Suppressed Clown Syndrome Workshops
"Chantal's workshops are entertaining, informative and so much fun.  It's stress release and great therapy!' Participant." - Mother & Childcare Worker.


The Daintree in far North Queensland Australia is the oldest rainforest in the world.  It predates the amazon and has survived six mass extinctions.  Some would consider it the world's last and oldest living museum of flora and fauna.  For ten years we have called Muluridji and Kuku Yalanji country our home.  

We secured five acres of part clean canvas and part rainforest, dating back at least five hundred years.  In establishing a specimen garden, we have planted nearly six hundred trees and plants in nine years.  Including Queensland Kari, Northern Maple, Black Bean, Sancowski, Ficus, Four variations of tamarind, Rainbow Gum, Wheel of fire, Grevillia robusta, Flame trees, Manitou, Syzygium a few different variates, rose silky oak, Corymbia smouldering red, Backhousia myrtifolia, Daintree pine, Atherton oak, and other different flowering and fruit trees both native and exotic.

See the photos before and after nine years.  We now have visitors like cassowaries, echidnas, kangaroos, wallabies, countless butterflies, birds and beautiful wasps.
