Hi, my name is Teri Stokes, or Happy Heart the Clown. Years ago my grandfather taught me how to make balloon animals. In the summer of 1998, I attended the Cheerful Clown Alley Clown School in Houston Texas, and in August graduated to become a REAL professional clown. I do birthday parties; Preschool Programs; Company Picnics; Church Programs; and Special Events. Some of the things I do at these events include: Comic skits and stories, Magic, Balloon Animals; Face Painting, storytelling, and games. I currently work three nights a week at local restaurants face painting and making fun balloon creations at kid nights. I also add balloon Decor in 1999 and became a CBA(certified Balloon Artist) in 2000.
My family calls me a bit of a workaholic. I love every minute of it. I’ve won lots of awards over the years including best all around clown in Texas and a lot of awards in balloon twisting at Texas Clown, Clowns of America and Twist and Shout . I have also taught balloon twisting at Texas Clown conventions and Summer camp and Joey to the world. My favorite thing is still making children of all ages smile.
