Interview

How and why did you get started in event painting?

I am a human camera, which means I capture images rapidly with paint and brushes. I began painting weddings when invited by someone who saw me painting people on Philadelphia's South Street. He saw that I could capture people very quickly, without them posing for me. Since that I have painted at weddings, Bar Mitzvah's, corporate events, stage performances on stage and back stage, and all kinds of musicians.


 

What can you tell us about your specialties?
I specialize in capturing the whole event in one painting and can also offer additional smaller paintings which make very personal gifts, or I can offer a package of multiple smaller paintings. I can also work from photographs after the event. I am based in Philadelphia.
