"Seeing Katherine’s piece was something of a 'Eureka' moment for me about integrating art and a special moment in life...I was truly excited by this prospect of 'marrying' art and a lovely wedding ceremony."

About Live Event Painting
Many people find not only that a live event artist can create a more distinctive, meaningful record of their special day than an ordinary photograph; a live event painter also puts on a performance, as guests witness an entire painting of themselves and their surroundings unfold over the course of a few hours.
As a live event artist, I come to your event and capture the action in a painting, which serves as both entertainment for guests and a lasting memento of your special event. I arrive onsite early to capture the specific light, color, and mood of a space, then add portraits of key guests as the party unfolds, in a dynamic, creative composition. I offer highly customized event packages, ranging from doing a complete live painting on-site, to adding more details afterward in the studio, to capturing a past event based on your photos.
I am based in Brooklyn, NY but will travel widely for your events (out of town locations have included Puerto Rico, Playa del Carmen, Mexico, Newport, RI, Hartford, CT and Baltimore, MD).
