Live Guest Portraits

Engage your guests with the captivating magic of live illustrations! Guests have the option of being photographed as they arrive, with illustrations completed on site. Guests will go home with a unique and artful favor that will be cherished!

Pricing for guest sketches is $200/hr. This includes 1 hr of travel (from Santa Cruz), all sketches made during the event, and supplies. I can paint on site between 2-6 hours.

Each sketch is completed in under 10 minutes. I can create approximately 25 paintings (40-50 guests) in an average 4 hour session. It is likely that I would not be able to capture every guest, but usually, not everyone wants one.
