A once in a lifetime talent!
I have contracted Ms. Laurence three times in the past 18 months (and have plans to utilize her, for numerous upcoming jobs).Sent on 04/27/2020
In all three occasions, the painting's were given as wedding gifts, and in all three occasions, the recipients cried after receiving them. The emotion and love captured in Jessica's work, is unprecedented. This is to be expected however; for Jessica approached each commissioned piece, in a methodical manner, consisting of numerous discussions in an effort to further ensure that as a collaborative team, we had the necessary plan in place to capture the desired results.
I myself am a complete novice, & initially was overwhelmed, before reaching out to Jessica, as I had not the slightest clue about various paints, methods, and techniques that go into a commissioned piece. Through her genuine, patient, and caring personality and approach, we were able to target what it was, I was looking for. From there, Jessica used various milestones, so to speak, to update me on the progress, and to more importantly, gather my input, along the way. In short, I knew what her vision was (through rough-drafting), and was able to offer input beforehand, and throughout the entire process.
Jessica’s once in a lifetime talent, along with her patient and sincere personality, truly make her a can’t miss painter, for any and all visions & projects, including those of the utmost importance. I could not possibly recommend her with an ounce more of confidence, trust, or genuineness!

We love our wedding painting!
We LOVE our live event wedding painting by Jessi. She asked us about our style and preferences beforehand, so that on the big day she worked quietly & efficiently. Her easel & supplies didn't take up much space & she was welcoming to our guests who wanted to watch her work. At the end of our wedding she gave us our painting & it was perfect! We get compliments on it all the time. She was professional, personable, no drama, and gave us our favorite memento from our wedding. 100% recommend!Sent on 03/31/2020

Jessi did a painting of my favorite photo from my wedding, and it was beyond perfect and beautiful! She really took the time to capture every detail and color. My husband and I now have the painting hanging in our house and we get compliments on it all the time. You can tell Jessi loves what she does and is passionate, and that shows through her work. Thank you for making my wedding even more special!Sent on 04/14/2020
