(Jessica Yurash also goes by the name Jeshka.)
Jessica got started in face painting and balloon twisting as a birthday entertainer at Happily Ever Laughter Parties when she was a teenager. By now she has performed at over 500 celebrations, and loves to be around children. Jessica still responds to being called "Miss Faerie Jingle." When Jessica first got training as a facepainter, she was glad to learn the new skill but had no idea at the time that it would become her career of choice a little later on. She was just excited to get paid to dress up like a princess every weekend.
Jessica also enjoys modeling, which is how she was introduced to body painting. After getting body painted a great number of times, she regularly assisted a professional bodypainter and did a 2-year apprenticeship. Since Jessica was already familiar with face painting and body paint modeling, becoming a body paint artist herself was a fast and natural progression.
Before this Jessica was focused on acting, and earned her Associate of Arts Degree in Performing Arts and Drama spring of 2011. She has worked full-time as the Production Assistant at the California Theatre Center.
Jessica also still enjoys modeling whenever she can, whether it is in the studio, on the runway, or doing promotions. Especially when it's bodypaint-related!
Jessica (or Jeshka) is located in San Francisco, CA. She regularly practices makeup, painting, balloon twisting, and henna tattooing.
When we provide our services, the ultimate goal is not only to execute professional and top quality artistry, but also to empower, inspire, and uplift people. When you get dressed up there is a special presence that comes out. We want to help make those memorable moments.
