My name is Melissa, and I am the owner and founder of Woo Who! Prior to the birth of my third child I was a budding sewing instructor and artisan, selling handmade children’s clothing at local boutique Austin Baby and at markets around Central Texas. When it was discovered my third child had a mitochondrial disease (a rare genetic disorder) it became clear that teaching sewing in a studio setting would no longer be an option for me. So I decided to grab the silver lining with both hands and run with it: I became a face painter! Painting faces is the best job in the world and brings joy and happiness to everyone involved.
The name WOO WHO was inspired by my children whose names begin with a “W,” an “H,” and an “O.” Sometimes we need an injection of enthusiasm around here, something a shout of “WOO WHO” can inspire! It’s the perfect name for a business whose business is to inspire and facilitate creative growth.
I hope to hear from you soon!
Yours most sincerely,
