Where are you based, and are you willing to travel for a wedding or an event?

I'm usually based in San Francisco, although in 2023 I'll be in Mexico and Asia for the first half of the year. I am open to international bookings. 

How much does a wedding painting cost?

Most weddings would cost between $600 and $1200 (depending on time and transportation costs). Live-event paintings are priced similarly. Corporate events cost more. It's important that art is accessible for diverse financial backgrounds. If price is a barrier, please let me know.  

What do you need for live-event painting

Good lighting and a seat. I bring all the supplies, but I need a place to sit and observe what is around me. I have painted in cramped bars with low lighting before. It could work, but ideally, there is lamp or a light source. 

Why painting?

I believe it's important to define meaning in a way that isn't monetary. Really, take a moment to think, how would you spend your time if you never have to worry about money again? The answer you give may help you uncover what you love. Painting is my answer. I want to spend this life painting and writing about the world.

I have an idea for a project that I'd like your help in. Can I reach out? 

Always, yes.


If you have a whisper of an idea, please reach out.
I'd love to hear from you.
