Sheila was our live painter at our wedding. She painted our first dance. Her painting was a hit at the wedding. Everyone loved seeing the artwork come to life throughout the night. My husband and I absolutely love the painting. It is so neat that you can tell exactly who everyone is in the painting. Sheila included so many small details that help us remember all the little things about our wedding. Her work is beautiful.
How lucky we are that Sheila Foley commemorated our daughter’s and son-in-law’s wedding. I had read an article in the Boston Globe newspaper (June 12, 2014) about her and was amazed to know that such a service existed! I looked her up, communicated via email, then we met and connected.Sheila was a joy to be with before, during and after the wedding. My husband and I met her at her studio and got to see a few pieces in progress, as well as her finished art. We liked the concept and really liked Sheila. She was caring, thoughtful and a true professional. Her excitement mirrored ours.It was easy to book her services and she had some suggestions which we liked and made part of the experience. Our guests were intrigued and were able to observe and chat with Sheila. She was unobtrusive yet still caught the splendor of the people and the event.When we presented the painting to the newlyweds, we took a picture of their reactions. They reacted as we did: breathlessly surprised, delighted, amazed. It was a wonderful gift to them.Thank you so very much, Sheila. You are a special person with a great talent to be able to preserve a special moment in peoples’ lives.
Sheila is a full-time artist. An experienced professional, she paints your special event live on site (or from photos later). This provides an elegant and unique entertainment for guests as well as a lasting work of art for you. Painting live is challenging but fun. People move, lighting changes, and the scene is in a constant state of flux. The result is a fresh and spontaneous work of art reminiscent of Paris cafe paintings. Sheila also does individual portraits or paints from photos after the event. Whatever suits your needs. Do you have a unique vision or creative idea for an artwork? It's probably doable, just ask!
