The Westmorland Gazette: Anne May Ellewood with face painter Janet Allen Anne May Ellewood with face painter Janet Allen

AN EDEN schoolgirl celebrated the end of her leukaemia treatment with a face painting party launching a new set of characters called the ‘Quirgles’.

Four-year-old Annie May Ellewood has even had her own ‘Annie May Quirgle’ invented by American author Jody Rife, the inventor of the characters.

The Quirgles – which use a new ‘one stroke’ face painting technique – were discovered by Orton face painter Janet Allen several months ago.

“My daughter bought a Quirgles book for me for Mother’s Day and a whole new adventure began,” she said.

Janet met Annie six months ago at a fund-raisier for Leukaemia Research and towards the end of her treatment her mum Donna asked if she would hold a ‘Quirgle party’ for her at Morland Primary School.

Janet said: “I had to let Jody know and she was so moved she is designing an Annie May Quirgle just for Annie.”
