Best Wedding Purchase I Made
Kate is fantastic! I commissioned her to do a live painting at my wedding in Manchester VT. She was so lovely to work with- we had an initial call to figure out what "scene" we wanted to be captured, and agreed on the cocktail hour since I had a photographer for the ceremony piece. She was even able to add my dog to the painting, which was adorable (he WAS at the wedding but retired to the hotel room during the party lol).Sent on 01/22/2020
Kate worked live during cocktail hour which was a real treat for our guests to watch her work. Everyone LOVED being able to see the picture come to life and chat with her. She wrapped up the painting from home and kept in touch with me during the whole process. To make it even better, once she sent a draft to me with the people defined, I was able to ask her to make edits to 2 people who were random plus ones at my wedding- I didn't really care to capture them forever in the picture, and Kate made it seem so easy to just reconfigure the figures into 2 of my closer friends. It was really amazing and unexpected.
I cannot say enough good things about my painting! We love it so much. My friends and coworkers loved the idea and I have gotten so many compliments. If you are on the fence, you really should give her a call, you will not be disappointed with the beautiful keepsake you will receive.

Something I'll treasure forever
As lovers of art I knew a live painter would be the perfect personal touch to our dream wedding. Our guests loved watching Kate at work and she captured the ceremony perfectly. She went above and beyond to communicate with me both before and after the wedding. She was prompt, responsive and even went out of her way to proactively reach out to our venue and work with them on logistics. Kate is a very talented painter and an absolute pleasure to work with. Her subtle brushstrokes created a painting detailed enough where we can easily identify our entire wedding party, while still maintaining the impressionistic style that drew me to Kate in the first place. The final product is a beautiful masterpiece we will treasure forever!Sent on 07/29/2019

Warm, professional, and talented!
Kate did a great job painting our wedding ceremony. She had to adapt quickly when our ceremony location was moved inside due to rain, but she kept a cool head, and the painting came out beautiful!. She was easy to communicate with and incredibly kind. Thanks, Kate!Sent on 07/25/2019
