What Is a Live-Event Artist? 

Exactly what it sounds like: 

I’ll paint at events, capturing special moments & scenes live.

This new trend started in the wedding industry: Couples hire me as their artist to come to their weddings and paint the scene in front of them as it happens.  As a Live-event artist, I typically paint the couple, the gorgeous venue surrounding them and some of the guests, too.  Most of these paintings are not exact portraits of the bride & groom but, rather, an interpretation of the event as I see it.  These paintings are somewhat abstract, and capture the excitement of the scene.
The live-event art market is growing, and more brides are exploring this option as a unique way for their weddings to stand out.  If you love art and want a memory keepsake for a lasting impression then this is the unique way to impress your guests.
I am also available to do other events such as galas and birthdays, fundraisers, and business functions.

As an alternative option:  
I take any of your photographs and turn it into an original piece of art.
You choose the medium: Pen and Ink / Graphic Design / Acrylic on Canvas / Oil on Canvas / Charcoal / Pastel / Pencil
Any photo of your choice: ~    Children   ~~       Pets      ~~     Family    ~ Landscapes ~
Let me Animate You and your loved ones into a permanent piece of Artwork. 
Capture your treasured memories.  Memorialize your family or pet. Create a timeless souvenir to keep for generations to come.
