Fine art investment

Through my journeys creating, I have found a love of capturing the beauty, adventure, and magic of a special day; Painting the landscape of that moment in time. Live painting engages your guests, adds a moment of tranquility to your day, and leaves you with fine art that invites reflection and reminiscing for years to come. I would love to capture some magic for you!

The Painting

I paint with gouache and watercolor on Arches 300lb hot press watercolor paper with a beautiful deckle edge. After painting is complete, I go over the work with ink, creating a detailed overlay that joins the elements together like lace. Elements within the painting may be a combination of literal and symbolic; Include your venue or vista, flowers, wildlife, and locations important to your story. Whether you are celebrating in the mountains, or in the city, I will gather these elements and mesh them to create a beautiful landscape painting that tells the unique story of you.

The Consultation: After securing your date, you and I will sit down (or hop on a call!) so I can learn about your story and event details. I want to know the loves and quirks that make your story unique!

I will compose your painting in studio, prior to your celebration, sketching in all those details we discussed at our consultation. Past elements have been everything from lake vistas and the oak tree a couple was married beneath to prehistoric florals and dinosaurs. Our discussion will inspire the distinctive components of your painting.
