The Co-OwnersMeet the Co-Founders

We are so excited to bring to Central Illinois a fresh, bold style and a new, excited generation of face painting. We are Shelly Gehrt and Kristi Horna, a fully insured Mother – Daughter team with over 14 years of combined professional face painting experience, and in 2012 we founded Wild Style Design Company! Our philosophy is simple, to bring breathtaking designs, a fun atmosphere, professionalism and smiles to your next event. We use FDA approved face and body paint designed to last on your skin, but be removed easily with soap and water! Fun for EVERYONE!!! With a complete passion for our work, Wild Style Designers will custom cater to many event styles and functions — From children’s face painting to adult body graffiti and henna tattoos, we can cover it all!

“…from Swirls and Curls to BAD and BOLD…”

You will feel confident choosing Wild Styles Design Company to make a long lasting impression with your friends, family, employees and customers!

We can’t wait to hear from you, and look forward to bringing SMILES to your next event!
