"Maryanne is an amazing artist with a depth of knowledge and talent stretching from high speed face painting for football crowds to pedestrian stopping 3D full body painting promoting businesses. If you want to to stand out from the crowd in your promotions for either photo shoots or live promotions Maryanne will give you a unique and attention grabbing result. I have to admit balloon creations were not something I was drawn to, however this changed. I had a serious accident 2 days before Christmas and arrived at Cairns Base Hospital which was the start of what was to be a 15 week hospital recovery. Maryanne delivered a life sized Father Christmas, accompanied by a floating Bambi deer on a tether. Every morning for the next week I woke to Father Christmas silently watching over me, giving me the thumbs up sign, and allowing me to start each day with a big smile. When Father Christmas could no longer "get it up" he was replace by with a bunch of blue and silver helium balloons with snowflake motifs on them. It was hot and one of the nurses who did not have air-conditioning at home told me, when she woke sweating in the middle of the night she just think of my cool balloons to drift back to sleep in no time."
