Can you imagine a world without art? I’m here to spread the love of art!
HELLO! Let me capture the energy and essence of the experience, the location, the event in a work of art. Capture the attention of your guests and the memorable highlights of your next corporate or private event. I follow your theme and create a piece live. I work anywhere! Your home, restaurant, the river....You dream it!
WHY LIVE PAINTING? Uplevel your event with art. A live painting event will add that classy touch of sophistication to your own special event. Watching an artist perform live is a unique experience. Your guests will be amazed as a colorful, expressive acrylic painting on canvas of your event comes to life before their very eyes. The result is an original work of art that you'll cherish for years.
A UNIQUE STYLE. I have a unique and lively style, developed over decades of providing live art entertainment at events of all kinds. I prepare the background and theme in advance, then add the important details as the celebration continues. Finishing touches, if needed, will be added in my studio.
"MY ROMANTIC EXPRESSIONIST ART CAPTURES THE FLAVOR AND LIFE OF A PLACE, TOWN, LANDSCAPE OR EVENT. THE EXPERIENCE ADDS AN ELEGANT TOUCH TO YOUR SPECIAL DAY."

Inspire your employees, friends, guests or children to create meaningful art together. These inspirational team-building art activities encourage creative confidence, collaboration and visual storytelling. Activities are uniquely designed for your event and can be done anywhere both indoors and outside. It’s a great fun way to reward those who mean so much to you. Participants will leave feeling connected.
Prepare to be engaged, entertained and wowed as you watch the painting take shape from a blank canvas. The experience is a mix of performance art and “kindergarten” fun. It’s a chance to let your inner child come out to play. But the best thing is the finished one of a kind stunning customized painting that you end up with.
Let’s decide what the subject matter “loosely” is and aim toward that. In all collaborations, interesting things start to happen on the canvas and the image takes on a new life. The participants will feel ownership over their creation and I will guide as an artistic facilitator.
In this collaborative art experience, everyone will have an opportunity to paint and add their mark on the canvas. Guests will be led through a creative process that encourages self-expression through an orchestrated experience using hands, brushes and other printmaking tools.
Your painting will be a custom made, one of a kind mixed media collaborative painting which will be unique to anything that you have ever seen. It will lift the spirits of all that enter the room or building!

Something interesting happens as hundreds of people stop by to watch me paint at live events and browse my online gallery. Typically I’m asked the same questions… so I’d like to share some of them.
Can you paint a painting of our home? Yes. You can commission me to paint your home all I need is a well lit photo.
How long does a painting like that take? My cheeky answer is 50 years give or take a few. That’s how long that I’ve been nurturing my talent. When I’m doing a live painting event I spend about an hour before the event mapping out my canvas. During the event about three hours and after… well it depends on the painting and what it is asking for.
What is your price range? My work ranges from $300 (small works) to $15,000 (large multi-paneled art).
My question is…What value do you have in being happy every day seeing the painting that you love? If you love it go for it and start the ball rolling by making a deposit and we can work out all the details.
Can you come to perform live at our wedding/event? Oh my goodness… That’s one of my favorite things to do! Let’s set up a call to go over the details of your event and see if we are a good fit. Here is a convenient calendar link for you to choose a time.
