LIVE EVENT PAINTER
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."
I’m a professional artist specializing in Live Event Painting at weddings, corporate and private events. I also offer fine art Expressive Experiences with CK.
Being a performance artist at heart has led me to travel and paint establishing studios in DC, Kauai and my home base of Tampa Bay. My artwork takes on the flavor of the area reaching collectors that are in tune with the energy of expression being put out. LEARN MORE ABOUT ME.
HOW IT WORKS

Here are the choices of canvas sizes to choose from.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE: PRE EVENT
Let’s schedule a chat to ensure we are a good fit. Book Caroline
After the deposit is collected, we meet in person or via Zoom to go over all the details and visualize the performance and artwork to be created.
- Color palette
- Size of canvas
- Subject matter and composition
- Emotion to be conveyed
- Details of the event
I show up early dressed for the occasion with everything needed to settle in and paint. This can include an easel, paints, canvas, easel stand, palette, brushes and other print-making materials.
The set-up and clean-up is quick and simple. I like having the canvas mapped out so I can quickly get into the flow upon arrival.
When the guests arrive I tune into the room's energy and capture those nuances on canvas.
Each painting is painted using my signature romantic expressionist style… seen in my website gallery. I paint quickly with a lot of dynamic emotional and bold brushstrokes. I encourage engagement from my audience as their energy contributes to the beauty of the painting.
