celebrating life & love stories with whimsical brush strokes and ethereal color schemes
I ADORE venue paintings. They're canvas pieces that capture the beauty of your physical venue. I often not only paint the building, but incorporate other hand painted imagery (such as your flowers) into the piece to make it that much more personal. Venue paintings can serve a few different purposes! Some of my favorites include:
invitations and day of stationery
an alternative guestbook
inspiration for live panoramic painting
Venue paintings are also the PERFECT first anniversary gift! The tradition is paper, after all!
Well, first, you’re probably wondering what exactly live “panoramic" wedding painting is...
It’s definitely still live painting, but I have a heart for focusing on your venue, location, scenery, or even ceremony (as opposed to just the reception)! Hence, the “panorama” of it all!
Whether you’d love for me to paint as entertainment for your guests, or arrive a little early to capture the quiet beauty of the details, a live “panoramic” wedding painting will be your heirloom keepsake
Your live painting package includes 3-4 hours of me live painting, on site, on your special day. I then take the painting home to complete details, and am more than happy to hand-deliver to couples in the Washington, DC area! Otherwise, shipping is TBD.
Backdrops are fabulous! Not only can a custom backdrop bring that 'wow factor' to your indoor or outdoor ceremony space, it can become that much more dramatic if it's long enough to turn into your aisle runner!
I'll work closely with you and/or your planner to create a design that can either incorporate hand painted imagery or simple brush strokes. Backdrops make for awesome photo booths, too! And the best part? After your beautiful day ends, you can take the backdrop to a framer, stretch the canvas over bars and, VOILA! You have a brand new, custom painting for your home!
I offer backdrops painted on both un-stretched linen canvas and watercolor paper.
Please message me for more details about width and length options!
What's a better way to give your most special day that extra, oh-so-special personal touch? Wedding art, of course!

...Your favorite quote...
...custom escort/seating chart painting...
