AN ARTIST has been commissioned to create Easter scenes in shop windows on Dyserth High Street.

Katy Bincham, who runs Krafty Kate Facepaint, began decorating her home before requests from neighbours and business owners saw her work steadily spread across the village.

It has included the Spar, where she works, Frankie’s Farm Shop, Indian takeaway Bangla Fusion, salon Hair Culture and the Dyserth Waterfall Shop.

Mrs Bincham, mum-of-two, said: “I decided to paint the windows of my house one day and my neighbour asked me to do it for them, so I decided to start advertising it.

“A few business owners saw my work and asked me to do it on their windows. At first I thought, ‘God, am I allowed to do this?’

“In the current climate if I can bring a bit of happiness and light then my job is done.”

Mrs Bincham, 38, said she is waiting for the end of coronavirus restrictions on parties so that she can resume her face painting business, however during lockdown she has recorded personalised children’s birthday messages while dressed as her characters Zee Zee, a dinosaur, and rabbit Hip Hoppity.

She said: “I have got some bookings later in the year which I’m really looking forward to.

“There is self-satisfaction that job you do gives joy to people, not just children but adults too.”
