Sheila Foley, is an experienced artist based just north of Boston, MA. A live event painter since 2010, Sheila creates a work of art totally on site and in real time. The acrylic painting goes home with the client that night.

Her style is Impressionistic, not photographic. The people on Sheila's canvases breathe and inhabit their space.

NEW PRODUCT - GUEST PORTRAITS. Quick sketches of individual guests or pairs done in pen, with watercolor touches. These are done from life while you wait. Not done from photos. It should take less than ten minutes each.

This is a separate service, not an add on. Either a wedding painting OR guest portraits.

Commissions are also welcome.

Services Offered

While Sheila Foley mainly paints live at weddings, she can also do individual portraits or paintings after your wedding is over. Provided with reference photos, with permission of the copyright holder (professional photographer), Sheila can recreate the joy of your special day. Her custom and personalised works of art reflect the spontaneity of a couple鈥檚 wedding. Her standard size of 12x16 inches can be painted totally onsite and presented to the couple before the close of the event. Paintings based on photos, provided after the wedding, can be done in a variety of sizes or art media.

Best Gift Ever

Sheila was absolutely wonderful, she came to a very non traditional wedding and did what it took to make it work. We are super grateful and the bride and groom loved it so much and the work itself was breathtaking. Cannot recommend enough. Thanks Sheila!

Beautiful Painting of a Beautiful day

Thank you Sheila, for adding your unique talent to our special day! My guests were blown away - and I loved that we could take the painting home the night or our wedding. It鈥檚 such a special, sentimental item.

We worked with Sheila for our 10 Year Anniversary party. She was able to accommodate us last minute, and was always to quick to respond to our questions! The final product was a gift for our owner and it was incredible. Sheila truly captured the essence of our property and ambiance of the evening. We would certainly recommend her to any of our clients.


When Sheila Foley arrived under the wedding tent, her eye immediately found "the spot", setting up easel and paints, to capture the occasion. She added a magical presence, a unique "real time" artistry, enjoyed by everyone that evening....and forever on canvas, by the Bride & Groom! We hope to see her at all of our weddings and settings!
