Face Painting with Susan Kerslake at the Elizabeth Bishop Festival

Without a doubt, one of the most popular activities for children at any gathering is face painting. We are thrilled to have one of the most popular face painters in Nova Scotia as part of the Elizabeth Bishop Festival, on 8 August 2015, in Great Village, N.S.: Susan Kerslake.

Here is the bio blurb Susan has given me to use in this profile: “Susan Kerslake has been face painting forever, starting at the IWK Hospital with poster paint and Nivea cream. Times have changed but face painting has not lost its allure.”

But I must add, Susan has been a member of the Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia for many years. She has also been one of the most faithful supporters of the Elizabeth Bishop House, especially volunteering at the Help Heat Her Home fund-raisers. In another life (and still in this one, too), Susan is a wonderful writer. We are delighted that she will bring her artistic skills to the festival.
