Meet the Zoo Lady

The Zoo Lady has been bringing professional theatrical face painting to the children and adults of central Illinois since 2002.

Besides being one of the most "artistic" face painters in the field, Mickey Lower, known as the ZOO LADY, has the ability to speed paint more than 35 mask faces in an hour, including jewels and glitter. With her staff of trained Zoo Crew painters, any event, including large school and corporate numbers can be easily handled.

HomepageCorporate sponsors, school carnival coordinators, and special event leaders marvel at her ability to "keep the line moving", without sacrificing the artistic touch or the child having his/her "special" time in the chair with the ZOO LADY.

Continuing education, as a formal public school teacher herself, is important for the ZOO LADY. Each year this includes attending the USA Face Painting Convention.

Call at (309) 532-1642 or e-mail at for rates and availability for birthday parties, special events, corporate parties, and fundraisers. To schedule an event: Fill out our REQUEST FOR SERVICE and we will send you a quote.

Hire the Zoo Lady / Crew for your event and not only get great face painting, but free advertising for your event. Averaging over 500 faces a week, with even more in the summer/fall, the Zoo Lady's facebook page can bring more people to your event.
