Turn your vows into a work of art
bespoke wedding day illustrations, drawn in-the-moment
I’m Sarah Nisbett. As an internationally recognized live illustrator, I tell the story of one of life’s most memorable events – your wedding. My years of quickly observing my subjects and their surroundings allow me to create lasting images, made-in-the-moment, as your special day unfolds. I'm thrilled to offer live portraits and live- illustration to make your day more artful.
In addition to being an artist, I’m also an author. “Drawn on the Way: A Guide to Capturing the Moment Through Live Sketching” is an educational and inspirational book that invites everyone to use drawing to find the extraordinary in the everyday and reminds us that each one of us is a work of art.
"I cried when I opened the box and saw the sketches. It was like living our wedding all over again! These are a precious gift we gave ourselves - and will be on display in our home forever."

"The drawings we have of our vows, first dance and dances with our friends are something we'll cherish forever."

Drawn On Your Day creates an artistic recollection of your wedding day through a series of live illustrations, made on-the-spot while the vows, dancing, toasting and all the magic of your day are happening.
From “I do,” to the last dance, and everything in between, your
wedding day is instantly transformed into a collection of beautiful
ink and watercolor illustrations that are yours to keep for your
happily ever after.
As I work, I create a "Living Gallery" to share my work throughout
your celebration, so that everyone can enjoy as your wedding literally becomes a work of art.
