Originally born in the Northwest Puget Sound of Washington state, Dandy made her way to the Bay Area for academic pursuits but quickly found the colorful, creative world of performance and theater. When Dandy isn’t hitting the books, she is finding her creative outlet in performance art, costume design, face painting, and interactive theater. She has performed at the Great Dickens Fair, Life is Beautiful festival, Oregon Eclipse festival, the Edwardian Ball, birthday parties, and private and corporate events. Dandy especially loved the work she did as a professional fairie at a children’s entertainment company, doing puppet shows, magic shows, balloon animals, face painting, and glitter tattoos.
I'm creative, crafty and fun! I love face painting, balloon twisting, making costumes for the circus and hiking around the bay area with my dog!
