Allow me to tell your story...

Live painting may seem like the new thing, but it was used for centuries by royals and aristocracy to capture parties and events. There is something unique and romantic about allowing an artist to capture your guests, atmosphere and subtle details in a work that will transcend a single moment and capture the feeling and spirit of the event in a single painting. It is something that will grace your home for generations and will be passed down as a treasured heirloom. 

My style is reminiscent of impressionism where light and color are captured with the purpose of creating a feeling and experience. I love this style for weddings because its soft, romantic and has to ability to transfer someone to a place and time in their heart and mind unlike any other. I proceed quickly, but very carefully when I live paint, watching closely for mood and balance in the work so that the final piece represents more than just an exact replica of your cake or dress, but more than that...it happens in the way the brush strokes are laid down, how the composition is drawn out and how light and color interact together. I'm also unique in that I have decades of experience painting portraits which means I can capture likeness in great detail. Another way I try and create a unique experience is by taking great pains in my set up. I bring ornate frames to paint inside so that people actually feel like they're watching a painting come to life, that frame hangs on an ornately carved wood easel and my side table includes linens and porcelain water and brush holders. I aim to create as elegantly as you've made your day! 

My live paintings come in two varieties: "Classic" live paintings that give a full scene capturing you and your spouse in a moment that offers a view of the entire scene. You're both in detail and your  likenesses are fully captured. Classic live paintings have a very romantic and impressionistic feel to them. These are perfect for outdoor weddings and exquisite venues. My "Contemporary" live paintings capture a smaller portion of wedding scenery, but offers a very intimate painting of you and your spouse in a moment of your choosing. Contemporary also offers the option to have a pre-selected number of family or wedding guests' likenesses added to the painting in studio. Classic live paintings are captured in "landscape" (horizontal) and Contemporary are captured in "portrait" (vertical) layout.

Live painting may seem like the new thing, but it was used for centuries by royals and aristocracy to capture parties and events. When photography came on the scene, painters were no longer employed to capture these events and the art died away. Today it's the one entertainment investment you get to keep for a lifetime! 


There is something unique and romantic about allowing an artist to capture your guests, atmosphere and subtle details in a work that will transcend a single moment and capture the feeling and spirit of the event in a single painting. It is something that will grace your home for generations and will be passed down as a treasured heirloom. 


It is my honor and pleasure to paint for brides and hostesses and I'm passionate about capturing all the details and moments that make you and your event special. My style of live painting is romantic and impressionistic. The focus of the piece is all about the bride and groom and my decades of portrait work provide the skill to capture the two of you and your likenesses to the awe and amazement of guests and family. You choose your moment and let me paint the magic...

 

...but before we go any further, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
