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

What a beautiful painting!
We loved working with Kate for our event painting. She is very professional and an extremely talented artist. Our painting came out just as I had hoped and is a lovely reminder of our beautiful wedding day. She captured the atmosphere, mood and overall vibe of that day more than a photograph could. Thanks again Kate!Sent on 08/01/2019
