Experienced artist will paint your special event live on site. This provides an elegant and unique entertainment for guests as well as a lasting work of art for you. Painting live is challenging for the artist. People move, lighting changes and the room is in a state of flux. For the artist, there's no time to sketch, just paint. The end result is a fresh and spontaneous work of art reminiscent of Paris cafe paintings. Read less

Sheila came to our recent wedding to create a painting of our wedding reception. She was very easy to work with throughout all of the planning before the wedding. While at the wedding, she was a hit! Everyone was interested in what she was doing and how it was all going to come together. She was great interacting with the guests as they asked questions and admired her work throughout the night.

We received the painting shortly after the wedding. She was able to coordinate with the photographer to get pictures of some of the details from the reception. She was able to incorporate so many details while keeping the theme of the painting “fantasy like.” We really like how the painting is somewhat abstract but at the same time very detailed. Everyone, who visits us, absolutely loves the painting! Many have said that they wish they had thought to have a painting from their wedding, to hang in their house.

We love the painting and are excited to have it displayed in our new home. It is something that we will treasure forever!

I was so excited when I came across the idea of having a Live Event painter for my wedding. I felt something was missing to complete my vision for our special day and when I came across this talent - I knew I had found that "something"! Having a painter at your wedding is no doubt an extra, similar to an ice sculpture, or uplighting but the difference is that it's truly unique. The plus is that you'll have something interesting that most of your guests have never seen in action or at a wedding and besides a form of entertainment, you'll have something to treasure for a lifetime. As a vendor, Sheila was super nice and easy going and I'd highly recommend her services. We often interacted over e-mail during my busy wedding planning phase to view samples of her work and talk about what I'd like the focal point to be or essence of the painting and she didn't disappoint - thanks again.

Sheila was our "secret vendor" at our wedding as it was my grooms wedding gift. Sheila was known to all hotel employees that weekend as top secret and boy did they mean it! They even snuck her in through the kitchen!
I had heard of Sheila after I had done a great deal of research on live event painting. After talking with her and seeing samples of her work, I was highly impressed with her impressionistic approach and style. Her attention to detail as well was something that captured my eye in her other event painting samples. Upon hiring her, she was very self sufficient and communicative in that ensuring those guests that were high importance were captured. I had actually emailed her photographs of guests who were very important to me as well as my husband. This I would highly recommend in that some guests will play musical chairs and create havoc on the painting.
At the event, she was positioned in the room whereby she would have a sweeping view of guests and of course as the focal point, my husband and I during our first dance. She was neat and orderly, unobtrusive to the "VIP" guests with any additional photographs that she had needed for later detail touch ups. She was more than courteous to our guests, willing to chat while working explaining her style, etc, as well as fun to be around.
After the wedding was complete, she and I stayed in touch via email to send each other photos of my flower girls ( you know they don't sit still!), and samples of how the painting was coming along. Each time I would see email from her, I would become so excited knowing that I am going to see another small clue of the final project. When we had received the final painting this past weekend, I almost cried! It was everything I could have hoped for! It truly captured the essence of our wedding, love, family and friends. The color scheme is majestic and lively. She captured pleats in dresses, the bustling of my dress, even the rhinestone pin in my hair.
Following the wedding, no matter how relaxed you feel you are, you are eager as a beaver to get things back from photos, video, etc. Please be patient with Sheila. It did take a little over 5 months to get the painting completed, but I would have waiting longer if needed for such a work of art. Remember this, she is creating a work of art on a blank canvas, your work of art. It is worth every minute of the wait. You will be as happy as I am when it is all completed.
Thank you Sheila! Jonathan and I will truly treasure this memory!

Sheila was a pleasure to work with. She thoroughly researched the venue and asked ahead of time about the people we especially wanted included in our painting. Her presence at the reception was an interesting and unique focal point for our guests, who enjoyed seeing the work come to life throughout the night. The finished painting is a beautiful work of art by a very talented artist that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. It hangs in a prominent place in our home, and is a special treat for guests to see their images captured on canvas. Having appreciated Sheila's artwork in the past, we feel so fortunate to not only own one of her paintings, but to have this special remembrance of our wedding reception.
