Lauri “Lil Kahuna” Petersen
Lauri founded AngelFaces in 2000. Her love of art and anything creative began as a young child. Entertainment has been her passion her entire life along with her love of children. After receiving a Degree in Elementary Education with a double minor in Classical Ballet and Theatre Arts she knew she was destined to continue the artistic journey.
“I began teaching elementary school and eventually Latin and Ballroom dance. My joy of teaching and creating has been a continuous passion. After having children I found myself coloring with them on children’s menus at restaurants and realized that I longed to explore the artistic medium of painting. On a fieldtrip with my son’s class, I discovered face painting and a light went off! After much practice and research I opened my business. I was fortunate enough to meet Joe, the love of my life, who enjoyed the creative process as much as I did. We continue to grow and encourage each other in a way that has blessed my life immensely. I can honestly say, “I love my job”! ~
