Live painting, like live music, is an improvised performance that expresses an event’s magic—on canvas, interacting with an audience. While my focus is on the celebration, the setting and the people, everything I see, hear and feel goes into my paintings. I’ve happily spent my life turning the magic of human connection into art that celebrates who we are.
Photographs are everywhere—sometimes it seems that we live through the photos on our phones. Paintings are very different. Rich and deeply human by nature, they have a timeless ability to bring color, light and emotion alive. A live painting is a tactile living creation where brush strokes of pure color are transformed with old-school alchemy into real people before our eyes. This is a rare experience for most people—and not an app or filter in sight.
I use professional grade acrylics for my larger paintings—the soft flow allows me to work quickly and expressively. Since acrylic dries quickly, I can easily make changes, add figures and details to my painting as the day evolves. Acrylic paintings are flexible, vibrant and long-lasting, easy to maintain and can hang anywhere—no glass needed. When I want to create intimate, gestural sketches, I use watercolor—and sometimes ink—on paper.
Live painting is a unique form of visual entertainment. People are surprised by how exciting it is to watch a painting come to life and love interacting and asking questions. Since I begin with a blank canvas and paint on location, in real time, the outcome always has an element of amazement and surprise—both to me and to your guests!
Honor your love and relive the champagne excitement of your wedding every day with a beautiful work of art that captures feelings you’ll want to cherish forever. Live painting is a one-of-a-kind gift for newlyweds and a thrilling surprise for guests who watch in amazement as an empty canvas becomes a vibrant painting filled with light, love and emotion.
Add energy, class, and color to your next big event with a live painting experience. Whether you’re planning an elegant gala fundraiser, high-end corporate event or edgy product launch, give guests a thrill as I transform the energy of the day into a vibrant composition of color and emotion.
Family stories are spun across time in unforgettable moments both large and small. From the sweet promise of a new baby, to joyful vacations, exotic adventures and exuberant milestone celebrations, live painting will add to the family magic for years to come.
