About

I’m one of the UK’s few live event artists, drawing on my 20 years expertise and using my fast, fluid style of painting to create beautiful portraits in real-time. I love to paint live to truly capture the style, spirit and energy of a wedding. 

For those who seek the unforgettable

Capture the style, spirit and emotion of your day in timeless artwork, painted live. 

I’m one of the UK’s few live event artists, drawing on my 20 years expertise and using my fast, fluid style of painting to create beautiful portraits in real-time. I love to paint live to truly capture the style, spirit and energy of a wedding. 

In a digital world where everything is virtual and everyone has seen it all, my mission is to create unforgettable experiences and artwork that people will treasure forever.

Live Event Artist

“Lucy broke the ice, had my guests enchanted in minutes and continued to paint with a crowd throughout the event.” Nick Stein

As each painting is finished, it is signed and dated with calligraphy, mounted with card and beautifully displayed in a mini pop-up gallery. As the gallery grows through your reception, it creates another exciting focal point and helps break the ice, without interrupting the flow of events. 

More than a memento, live paintings are a magical, unexpected way to amaze your guests. As portraits appear out of nowhere, the pop-up gallery becomes a true talking point. The special people in your life receive their own one-of-kind portraits as wedding favours.

Wedding photographs are precious. Wedding paintings are irreplaceable.

The beauty is that an easel can fit anywhere, inside or out, with no need for electricity. I take photographs so no-one need pose. Then I paint live to respond to the moment.

Live Event Artist

I can paint a maximum of 20 guests on the day. If you would like to surprise more guests with a unique wedding favour, I can complete the paintings in my studio, using the photographs I took on the day. I can also create compilation prints, thank you cards and prints.

My style of painting is inspired by fashion illustrations so it’s more about the body and clothing – capturing an impression rather than detailed reality. It tends to appeal to creative people that have an eye for fashion, art and beauty.

I’m based in Winchester, United Kingdom but blessed with a job – and a passion – that takes me all over the world, collaborating with talented people, painting for some of the world’s most exclusive brands in incredible locations.

Live Event Artist

Many couples request the experience as a wedding gift from a close family. After all, you all get to enjoy the finished artwork for years and years afterwards.

"I think they are better than photos and I am so glad we booked you to make our son's wedding even more special than it was, now with lasting memories." Sarah Wenworth

Delight your guests with the unexpected. Treasure your original artwork forever.

Please get in touch if you would like to receive my wedding brochure. I look forward to hearing from you.

An absolute treat
To have Lucy at our wedding was an absolute treat. Not only did she captivate my guest in her paintings but also their attention as she quietly created beautiful pictures of memories that we can keep forever. In my opinion, having art to capture one of the best days of your lives is invaluable.
