Frequently
Asked Questions

Learn more about commissioning a live illustrator and how we can work together!

Will I need a photographer if I hire you?

Yes -- if you want hundreds of detailed, highly realistic images from your day -- and also, if you just want photos!

 

I have an artistic eye and can capture images really quickly, but I am not a photographer. My purpose is to create an artistic recollection of your day, finding the special moments and details that speak the spirit of your day and turning them into works of art in real time. 

Will you create portraits for my guests as gift?

 

Yes! I can create on-the-spot portraits of your guests that they can take home as a precious memento and beautiful piece of art. Using digital or traditional techniques, I’ll delight your guests with a portrait in just a few moments. And I’m always happy to combine my services into a custom package— drawing live illustrations at your ceremony that are just for you - and making on-the-spot portrait gifts as entertainment at your reception!

 
Can I make prints of your illustrations?

 

Yes! I offer print packages and reproduce my illustrations using archival quality paper and inks. Prints make beautiful gifts for the special people who are a part of your big day. 

 
What if I want something different than your standard packages?

 

Great! I’m always happy to work with you to come up with creative ways to be a part of your event. 

 
Do you do ever work from photos?

 

Yes! I  can work from photos and can help with commercial and private commissions. 

 

 

I’d like you to draw at my event, but I’m not getting married. Can you do it?

 

Yes! From corporate events to intimate dinner parties, I can create an artistic recollection of your special event.

Would you come to my home to live-sketch my family?

 

Yes! This is one of my favorite ways to create a family portrait. Imagine a lifestyle photography session, but instead of a photographer capturing candid moments of your family life, I’ll be sketching them! It’s really fun, collaborative and a great way to engage kids in the family portraitLet's chat!

Are you also the same artist behind Drawn On The Way?

 

Yes! I learned how to draw by drawing strangers every day. It’s my favorite hobby and also my profession. Follow me on  Instagram to see where and who I’m drawing next!

I love your style, can you help me learn to draw?

 

Absolutely! I wrote my book, "Drawn On The Way: A Guide To Capturing The Moment Through Live Sketching"  just for you! It's a friendly and accessible guide to turning your world into a work of art. No matter what experience you have as an artist, this book will meet you where you're at and give you confidence you need to enjoy this mindful pursuit and tell your own stories through art.
