    Beautifully Unique Gift

    I wanted to gift my sister a live wedding artist experience and of course lasting memento for her big day. There were a lot of moving parts to this wedding and Sheila was super adaptable and resourceful in how to make sure that there would be a quality product done by the end of the night. All the guests and most importantly the couple were impressed by her talent and will forever cherish their portrait. I cannot say enough good about Sheila's professionalism and positive attitude which made this experience a pleasant one and I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is looking for a beautifully unique way to capture any big moment.

    True talent and so much fun!

    I hired Sheila to paint at my best friends wedding as a gift and it was nothing less of amazing! She not only created an beautiful painting, but her fun and enthusiastic style made the experience that much better! I truly cannot emphasize enough what a perfect addition Sheila was to the wedding as a whole, the bride loved it so much she cried, and the guests were absolutely blown away at Sheilas painting and upbeat personality. And to top it off- the painting was started and finished at the wedding, and it looked exactly like the couple! I will definitely be hiring Sheila again!

    Fine Artist and Live Event Painter's reply:

    Thanks so much, Crystal. Talk about fun! Do you spread joy everywhere you go? Or was it just at the wedding? It was a pleasure working with you. All of the bridesmaid, the families, friends and, of course, the couple, were so kind and helpful. Keep smiling. You do it so well!

    The Highlight of Our Wedding

    Sheila was incredible talented and passionate about her work. She met with us for a site visit to determine what scene we wanted to be painted. She arrived early to begin painting the background before the ceremony. The guests all commented on how enjoyable she was to talk with and watch create. At the end of the night, we had a completed masterpiece capturing our first dance. It’s become a treasured keepsake from our special day. Sheila was a pleasure to work with and her artwork is stunning.

    Fine Artist and Live Event Painter's reply:

    Thank you so much Heidi. Your words are music to my ears! I so enjoyed your location, your interested guests, and especially working with you and Rob. I'm so glad the painting has a wonderful future in store.

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!
