Sheila is a full-time Live Event Painter. An experienced professional artist, she 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, romantic work of art reminiscent of Paris cafe paintings. Read less

Sheila was a pleasure to work with on our wedding day! After talking to her, we decided to go with sketches rather than a painting, to fit the homemade feel of our wedding better. The sketches we received are beautiful and fit our style so well! They were presented beautifully and we cannot wait to frame them and display them in our home! We would recommend working with Sheila to anyone looking for a unique keepsake for their wedding!

Sheila did a live event painting for our daughter's wedding last June. Our guests found it very entertaining to watch as Sheila worked on the painting during the reception.
We were very pleased with our painting. We had asked Shelia to paint Nonie and Ben's first dance.
It was beautiful.
It was also a delight to work with Shelia before the wedding . She was always quick to respond to all my emails and she was very flexible in arranging to meet with me before hand to view the venue site. I highly recommend Sheila Foley as a Live Event Painter for any occasion.

I would highly recommend Sheila to other couples interested in having a live painting of their wedding! And to couples who aren't interested in having a live painting of their wedding or haven't considered it - DO IT - it's hands down one of the best things we did for ours. We wanted interesting details at our wedding, and we also wanted to commemorate the day in a classic but unique way, and this was perfect on both counts. The guests thought it was the coolest thing that there was a live painter there and many people have been asking about the final product! Somehow, I don't know how, Sheila managed to identify and include all of our important family members and friends in the painting, without us prompting in any way. It's amazing to me, being completely unartistic, how you can totally tell who everybody is and how it captures the feel of the day! It is such a neat thing to have in our home and I know we will cherish it for years to come.

Sheila was great to work with, very responsive via email and flexible working with our wedding planner and our venue. On the day of, she was unobtrusive, tucked into a back corner, but also willing to talk to guests who had questions or who wanted to see what she was working on. It was the perfect little addition to the reception and it gave people something to talk about without being "showy". It worked out perfectly for us that she was located right behind the table with my grandparents, so they are prominently featured, making the painting even more special. The one thing to be aware of is that the finished product takes several months to complete (it's a piece of art after all!), so just know that going in. I have no regrets about using Sheila, and would do it again in a heartbeat!! I encourage all couples to use her at their wedding, it's worth every penny and then some. I'm trying to come up with other occasions in our life that would warrant a custom painting, just so we can work with her again!

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.
