Originally formed in 2013 by a local mom named Thea Kearney, in 2021 Cecilia Peña became the new owner of Fifi's Face Painting. Cecy had been working with Thea helping her face paint at local street fairs like Mayfest and Art Walk in Maplewood, NJ.
When Thea decided to start another business, having Cecy take over seemed like the perfect solution because she was already familiar with the business and had the skill and passion to continue providing excellent customer service for current and future clients.
Cecilia Peña has been painting with Fifi's since 2017. She graduated from Orange High School in 2013. She studied painting during her junior and senior years of high school and sold many of her paintings at an event in New York. After this, art became a passion. Thanks to a birthday party, she was introduced to face painting, and has loved it ever since. Cecilia is always practicing and learning new face painting techniques! She lives in New Jersey with her husband, son and daughter.
