Asa Kocher


Asa (pronounced OH-sa) has been working with face and body art for around 7 years now.  In addition to doing face and body art, she’s also a very talented and award-winning baker and cake decorator/designer.  She stumbled into her love for face painting quite by accident after hiring a local face painter for her young daughter’s birthday party.  Shortly thereafter, Asa began working for this face painting company and discovered she was a natural at it.  Her skills quickly grew and expanded and, within a year or two, she struck out on her own.

Most of her advertising comes from word-of-mouth recommendations -a fact she’s very proud of! She continues to be a regular at many of this area’s annual festivals while also gaining new fans and clients along the way.  She maintains and expands her skills by taking a few professional level face and body art classes taught by nationally-known experts in the field. Two years ago, Swede Art started offering balloon twisting done by Asa’s husband and budding balloon artist, Michael K.

Asa and Michael’s two children also pitch in and help at bigger, family-friendly festivals by doing glitter tattoos and helping Michael with the simpler balloon creations.  Swede Art is all about customer service, quality art, big smiles, and family fun!
