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

The Process

How we will collaborate

Guests are invited to enjoy the live painting experience with physical distance, per the CDC Covid-19 recommendations.

Decide on the Scene

What memory do you want to capture from your wedding? Walking from the altar as Mr. & Mrs.? 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.
