About Kim

West Linn Movies in the Park

Kim Millen’s love of children and passion for art is evident whether she is teaching a kid’s art camp or painting on people or canvas. With paint brush in hand and a smile on her face, she is in love with what she does!

Kim earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona, and has been creating, selling and teaching art successfully in the northwest for 30 years.

In addition to being a studio artist and teacher, she is the owner and principle artist of U B Painted, a face and body art business which services Portland and surrounding areas. She discovered that painting on people is the perfect marriage of painting and connecting with people.

Kim paints in small or large venues (with her team) and especially enjoys birthday parties,company picnics and adult promotional events.  She was a promotional painter for Cirque du Soleil this year and was excited to be hired to paint the Trick or Treaters for NBC’s TV series Grimm for their Halloween episode.  She is the St. Paddy’s Day painter for Kell’s yearly festival and has been hired by countless companies and individuals to entertain at events. Kid’s birthday parties, night clubs, or art gallery events, she is comfortable in any venue. She also has a beautiful in-home studio available for private face/body paintings for that special occasion.  She will also travel to you!

Kim regularly attends face/body art seminars around the country, keeps current with safety issues and uses the finest paint (FDA approved) makeup available. She has studied with many well known face/body artists including Mark Reid, Brian Wolfe, Pastur, Wiser, and Kerry Ann Smith. Her training has broadened her horizons, and she now enjoys painting on bodies as well as faces. She believes the experience of being painted should be as fun and interesting as the artwork !
