I've been live painting since Cascadia NW Art and Music Festival in Washington state in 2015. I was instantly hooked on the experience and have since had many opportunities to contribute my art to these gatherings. I have had the honor of painting at events with Alex and Allyson Grey, Autumn Skye Morrison, Eric Nez, Luke Brown, Tessa Mythos, Burgandy Viscosi, Simon Haiduk, and so many other talents . Visuals are such an important part of these experiences and when I'm painting I feel like the energy of the room is channeled into my art which shines back into the room and creates a kind of feedback loop! It's been an honor and I hope to do a lot more live painting in the future. Below are a few of the events I've worked at.
I like to approach live painting as a performance rather than paint as if I were at work in my studio. The paining evolves more quickly and is generally more energetic to watch and is therefor more entertaining!
