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

The Process

How we will collaborate

Decide on the Scene

What memory do you want to capture from your wedding?  The 'reveal'?  The first dance? Cutting the cake? Walking in as Mr. & Mrs.? We will have a phone consultation to make sure your decision is understood. I arrive 2-3 hours early to begin painting the scene.

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 completed on-site and 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.

"An original piece of art captures life creatively."
