About Kim



Face Painting Grimm

Painting on the set of NBC Grimm

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.

Kim Millen’s love of connecting with people and passion for art is evident whether she is painting on a child’s face, creating a custom full body painting or teaching art in her studio. With paint brush in hand and a smile on her face, she is in love with what she does! She believes the experience of being painted should be as fun and interesting as the artwork!

About 10 years ago, she discovered that painting on people is the perfect marriage of painting and connecting with people. Kim owns and is principle artist for U B Painted Face and Body Painting, a top rated business serving Portland and surrounding areas. Her forte is working with her client (no matter what age), finding and creating their unique vision. This process fuels her passion. People and Paint!

Kim paints for small or large fast face events (with her very talented team) and especially enjoys birthday parties, company events and adult custom work. She and her team work as promotional painters for Cirque du Soleil and Kim’s body painting was featured this year as she painted live in front of the Cirque Du Soleil audience. NBC also featured Kim’s Day of the Dead and Halloween designs on the TV series Grimm. Never, never a dull moment when she is painting.

She and her team are the St. Paddy’s Day painters for Kell’s and Paddy’s yearly festivals, has been the Mardi Gras Ball painter, painted for Music videos and CD covers and has been hired by countless companies and individuals to entertain at events. Kid’s birthday parties, night clubs, or live body painting for 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. BYOB and have a gathering as she paints! She will also travel to you!

Although U B Painted takes most of her time, she still manages to paint and teach art when can because she loves it! Kid’s summer camps are a favorite with occasional Paint Evenings for adults!
