Where are you based, and will you travel to my venue?I am nomadic, that's right, I am a true traveling artist! I live in a 5th wheel and am based in California. I travel all throughout the country as well as internationally too. My travel costs are included in your proposal, with compensation for airfare or mileage if necessary; hotel accommodations; and a rental car as needed. We can discuss that during our introductory call if you need me to ship the painting to you after the event.
What kind of paint do you use?I paint with a high-quality water-based Liquitex acrylic that dries quickly and cleanly. My paintings are available on pre-stretched gallery-wrapped level 3 canvases. I am able to paint in Watercolor as well, however, the canvas/paper sizing for this service varies. Let's talk about this more; Contact me to schedule an introductory call.
Do I need to provide you with any provisions while at the venue?Luckily, my setup is minimal and usually does not require assistance from event staff. I supply my easel and will need a small painting area designated beforehand. This space whether it be indoor or outdoor needs to be at least 4' X 6' to accommodate my easel. The site also needs access to a power outlet near where I will set up during the painting performance - all other materials are included! A vendor meal is also necessary as I typically take a 15-minute break to stretch and refuel about halfway through the painting session.
Can I make special requests on the design of my painting?No problem! Your painting will reflect your vision and include what you want to my best ability. We'll discuss this list ahead of time so that I know what to expect when it comes time for the brush to hit the canvas. Common special requests: Include pet(s) (Gold or Silver package only) Friends or Family members (Gold or Silver package only) Couple's initials (either obvious or hidden) Exclude (or include) DJ, tables, floral arch, specific decor, etc. (within reason) A symbol for a guest(s) who are 'there in spirit (Ex: Dove in the sky, butterfly, dragonfly, etc.)
When can I expect my painting to be finished?Your painting is a labor of love, and I want to make sure that it's perfect. That means depending on the size or detail of the subject matter - larger paintings require more time than smaller ones. I tend to finish most pieces that night, however, if I require more time to complete - you'll be informed right away or we can plan ahead to budget for extra hours. I highly recommend extra studio time for weddings that have a lot of ornate details. The more time I spend on your painting, the more detail I am able to include in your artwork. If I plan to take the painting back to my studio and complete it there it may take anywhere from 12 to 14 weeks to complete. It all depends on how much I can capture at the venue. Your patience and understanding with my process are greatly appreciated, art is not an exact science...
What is needed to book you for my event?When we confirm that I am available for your event date, I will schedule an introductory meeting either by phone or email. Information we'll discuss during our call: Location Date & Time of Ceremony Venue vendor requirements (Ex: Insurance) Desired Live Wedding Painting Package The moment you'd like to have captured in paint Delivery coordination if extra studio time is allocated to your painting You get to choose from several package options (please know which one you'd like when contacting me). Then I would create a custom proposal based on information gathered during our encounter. --and once chosen; I will send over a contract and invoice ($USD 50% retainer required to secure your date).
Do you finish the painting on-site?I'm here to help you create a painting that will be something special for your wedding. Typically I finish my pieces by the end of the event and you take them home with you that night. We can also designate a "Painting Guardian" (a trusted friend or family member) to be in charge of the finished piece while you're focused on your first night as a married couple (preferred). In some cases I might need an additional day before heading back home - this way everything has had plenty of time to dry. The more time I have to paint for you, the more creativity there is for each brush stroke that meets the canvas.
Will you paint guest portraits as gifts/favors at my wedding?Yes, please check out my Guest Portrait Service page here
My ceremony is short compared to the rest of the night, is 20 minutes enough time for you to paint it live?Yes, I love painting ceremonies because they are so short and captivating. The best time for me to arrive at your venue is early before the ceremony begins (1-2 hours before). I like to paint as much as I can before the ceremony so that I have the background setting on canvas and am ready to capture your special moment as it unfolds. I also take photos and videos of your moment for reference which will help later on.
You were or are booked for my wedding, could you still paint us a painting from a photograph?I’m so sorry I couldn't be there! Yes, I can! But you know that painting is a big deal and needs time to prepare. Luckily for all of us, we can rely on professional photographers who will provide clear images from your event - giving more options when it comes down to what moment and size/style would best fit your budget as well as preferences. Please keep in mind that my commission list is open selectively throughout the year. If you'd like to commission a painting, please contact me directly.
Will you paint my wedding invitation?Of course! I am happy to help you with artwork for your wedding "Save The Dates", Wedding invitations, Table Seating Chart etc. so that the same brand/tone will be throughout all of these events in history together as one big celebration. I look forward to working on this project and making it something special just like what's needed for such an important day :) Please contact me for more information. Everything I do is custom, so let's find something that is the perfect fit for you!
