Tell us a little about yourself
I put everything I have into creating beautiful heartfelt paintings of my brides and grooms. My one of a kind paintings capture their most treasured moments on the canvas and showcase personality, likeness and excitement of this incredibly special moment in time. I donate 10% of proceeds to charity so many people find comfort knowing somebody has been helped in the process of hiring this wonderful, captivating entertainment.
How did you get your start in the event business?
I began my journey while painting in Winter Park. I was approached and asked if I could paint live at their wedding! After thinking about it I decided to do it. Then, I was asked to paint at another wedding from that very first night! Business just bloomed for there and the rest is history.
