Nothing surprises & delights guests more than having their portrait painted live.

They're always tickled they get to keep their portraits as event favors!

Endlessly entertaining, these are painted by hand from them sitting with me.

I do not paint from cell phone photos, I just look at them the same way painters of the past have been creating portraits for thousands of years!

These timeless portraits are colorful & fun, yet more refined for your classy event than caricatures.

Watercolor is one of the most difficult mediums because there are no re-dos.

I pretty much only get one shot to get it right.

I put on a show entertaining all of your guests, not only the guests getting their portrait done. They all love asking me questions & watching along!

I have a pager system so your guests don't have to wait in a long line.

I hand over a pager & buzz them over when it's their turn! 

This way they can keep enjoying the event- keeping your dance floor full & guests happy!

They simply take the pager & return when it vibrates & flashes when I'm ready to paint them. 

Couples often like being painted together & we have fun chatting it up! 

For shyer guests, I love painting their pets from photos on their phone.

The pet portrait option is a favorite at bar & bat mitzvahs, kids & teens LOVE it!

These favors are perfect for guest entertainment at weddings, corporate events, bar & bat mitzvahs, & pretty much any party imaginable!

Since newlyweds normally are pulled in a million directions I don't expect them to have time to sit for a portrait.

Instead, I will paint your portraits before the event & bring them framed to display on the table with me & it's yours to keep after your wedding!

Since you'll be busy enjoying your wedding, I take photos (with guests' permission) of guests with their portraits to send you after the wedding! 

If you'd prefer privacy, I also can skip taking any photos on your event's day.

I bring everything I need including a flashy gold sequined tablecloth (up to you if I use it or not).

All you need to provide is one table (anything 3 feet or larger is perfect) & two to three chairs. 

I keep my set up simple & transportable, no need for a power supply or big set up.

I can be set up anywhere for your event, I have guest portraits on locations from hiking trails to catamarans!

Portraits take 5-10 minutes per person.

Timing depends on how still, chatty, or inebriated each guest is.

Portrait sizes are 6"x9" for single individuals & 9"x12" for couples & families that prefer to be painted together.

Both sizes come professionally packaged with clear cello sealed bags with backing boards when finished. 

This keeps the portraits protected from drinks being spilled on them & being dented when put in purses on guests' way home!

My philosophy is quality over quantity.

I always prioritize my artwork looking sharp & your guests having a fun time laughing with me.

I will never make guests feel rushed or like I don't want to talk to them. What I love most is genuinely connecting with all your favorite people!

Every guest likely won't get a portrait unless you have a very small event. But, for the ones that do, it will be an out of the ordinary experience they will never forget.

For those who cannot get a portrait done, they have fun chatting & watching along- often playfully teasing whoever is in the hot seat!

Having fun is a Pigment & Parchment company policy I take very seriously.

Your guests experience being memorable & fun is what means the most to me.

All the materials used are archival & made to last past our lifetimes. 

I'm obviously biased, but I don't think you can beat giving your guests an interactive experience that results in fine art for them to pass down to future generations.
