How does it work?

I paint live fashion illustrations using ink, markers and watercolour paints in my signature bright & whimsical style on A5 paper. It's also possible to brand the paper with your company logo, date, location, etc. 

How many illustrations will be created?

I work at a rate of approximately 1 sketch every 8 minutes for an individual, or 10- 12 minutes for couples depending on style and detail. 

How it works?

Your guests will be happy to learn they won't be asked to stand in front of me while I paint them! Instead, they pose for a photo, which I use for reference while they continue to enjoy the event and I paint. I pack each illustration in a protective sleeve with a hard backing board for protection and display it on the table as I go, creating a little pop up gallery.  

What style are they painted? 

My quick illustrations are painted in my signature stylised and whimsy way, which is always flattering and complimentary of guests. I quickly capture the key details of outfits and hairstyles, wowing your guests when they instantly recognise themselves and fellow attendees in the pop up gallery. I also offer black and white illustrations, which may suit your event theme better, and also means a higher output of illustrations as they are quicker to create.
