How did you get into live painting?

I became a huge fan of painting in front of an audience after I traveled on a cruise ship as an Artist In Residence. During my time on the cruise, I would create impressionistic landscape paintings based on the European cities we traveled to. I would paint these “destination paintings” LIVE along side musicians, acrobats and dancers on the ship as a form of visual entertainment for the guests. When I came home from my travels, I realized that I finally found my niche as a live painter. I decided to work in the wedding business because of the enthusiastic and loving environment that weddings have :)

Shipping

Do you have a local pickup option?

Yes, I do! If you are in the Rochester, NY area and would like to make a purchase without paying for shipping, please email me at cafcreationsvip@gmail.com for a free shipping promo code. We will schedule a pickup date for your work of art.

Where do you ship to?

I ship anywhere located in the United States and Canada.

How will you ship my artwork?

The safest and most cost effective way to ship artwork is to carefully roll the artwork and ship it in a mailing tube! I do this with all of my prints so that it reduces the risk of the artwork getting damaged if I were to ship it flat. Once you receive the artwork, I suggest safely unrolling the artwork and laying it flat under a stack of books before framing! The artwork will remain flat after you complete this step. *There are some instances where I will ship the artwork in a box, however, tubes are most common for prints and large scale original works!*

Do you have a return policy?

All of the artwork that leaves my studio is treated meticulously and with love! My goal is for you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. Please contact me directly at cafcreationsvip@gmail.com and I will work with you to sort out any issues!
