My mom saw Katherine painting at a family friend's wedding and asked for her card. Years later, my mom reached out to Katherine to paint at my husband and my wedding as a gift! The painting is beautiful and is such a unique and wonderful memento from out wedding night. Highly recommend!Sent on 07/12/2019

A unique and special experience
My husband and I had Katherine paint our first dance at our wedding and it was the best decision we made! The painting is not only beautiful, all of our guests were raving about what an amazing experience they had watching the painting come together. The painting is so special and is something I recommend 100%.Sent on 03/15/2019

Most memorable aspect of our wedding night!
Cannot speak more highly of Katherine and the final masterpiece she produced of our wedding night. It truly captures the love and energy we felt in the room, and Katherine was extremely patient with our (very detail-oriented) requests before and after the event. For example, the venue could only set Katherine's table up in a specific area of the room, which limited the angle with which she could capture the space, so we requested that she leave out big structural elements of the room to fudge it a little and make our painting more symmetrical. She was completely obliging and it turned out great. Also, we unfortunately lost my grandfather days after the wedding, so requested details to make sure he was represented accurately in the painting, and Katherine was extremely generous in the countless emails/back and forths and revisions. It turned out PERFECT and we happily have it hung in our NYC apartment. Our guests were blown away by this spectacle at the wedding (way more unique than a photobooth!) and we actually turned them into our Thank-You cards as well! Love it!!!Sent on 04/18/2019
Event Painting by Katherine's reply:Thank you so much for this amazing review! I love seeing the image you created for the thank-you card too—it really came out great. So glad I was able to create the painting that matched your vision in the end!!
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.
Katherine transforms events. She shows up on your special day and paints the event in person, live, creating an unforgettable experience through her engaging and intriguing on-site painting. Discreet yet available for guests to watch and admire, Katherine's expertise is in creating memories that not only last a lifetime but generations. If you're on the fence about who to hire to make your important event extra memorable, don't think twice: Katherine is gracious, professional, and a true delight to spend time with. I enthusiastically recommended her.
