Live event painting captures the energy and spirit of your celebrationin the moment they are happening.

The Process

How we will collaborate

the new Mr. & Mrs.

Decide on the Scene

What memory do you want to capture from your wedding? Walking from the altar as a married couple? The first dance? We will have a phone consultation to make sure your decision is understood. I begin painting 1-2 hours prior to the event to block in the scene, and paint live for you and your guests for a total of 6 hours.

Watch Me Work

People love watching the painting come to life and I offer light entertainment for your guests.  I enjoy conversation, as they catch glimpses of the painting taking shape.

Refine the Details

Live painting on-site, on the day of the wedding.  Some detail in the Bride & Groom, other guests in impressionistic and painterly style. Heightened details will be added when I take it back to my studio as more definition is included in the Wedding Couple's posture, emotions, and features.


One-of-a-Kind Treasure

A painting takes on a life of its own, capturing the essence of an event and people in a way that a camera lens cannot.  Enjoy your painting for years to come, painted on archival canvas and painted with oils.
