    Unique and Beautiful!

    We found Katherine through my mom, who saw her painting at another wedding. When my mom came to us with the idea to have Katherine paint our first dance, we jumped at the chance. Katherine is incredibly talented and we were so impressed with the speed in which she was able to complete so much of our painting! Our reception started at 7:00 and because there was another wedding before ours, Katherine could not set up to start painting until 5:00. When we got to the venue at around 5:30, Katherine was just starting to tape off her canvas. By the time we checked back in on the painting, she had the entire background painted and was starting to add people. We were amazed at how quickly she got so much done without compromising the quality of the painting. Our guests LOVED watching Katherine paint all night and multiple guests came up to us to say how unique and different it was to have a painter at our wedding; several even took Katherine’s information for use at future events. Katherine must have stayed past the ending time of our reception because she was able to complete majority of the painting that night - it’s clear she loves what she does. Because we got engaged in Disney World and are avid Disney lovers, we asked Katherine to include some “hidden Mickeys” and we loved that we were able to add this personal touch. Katherine added a unique and special element to our wedding and we are so happy to have found her. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Social Event - Spectacular Painting for a Surprise 65th Birthday

    We hired Katherine to capture the moment at my boss's Surprise 65th Birthday and she created an incredible painting! I wish I could describe the sheer joy in my boss's face when she saw the finished painting (which Katherine kindly included family members who couldn't be present that day, as well my boss's kitty cats!) This is an incredibly special gift for someone. Katherine was so professional and listened to all our needs and what we hoped for, and she created an incredible masterpiece that my boss will cherish forever! It is already hanging up in her office! Thank you Katherine for sharing your incredible talent with us!

    I had the pleasure of working with Katherine on a gorgeous winter wedding in the Hudson Valley. Her painting is nothing short of amazing! I could not believe how quickly she could paint a scene from the wedding with such extraordinary detail and care. If you are looking to preserve your wedding memories in addition to your wedding photography in a very unique manner, having a live event painter at your wedding is an investment you will not regret. Your painting will be cherished for generations.
