Art by Ivey "Wedding Bells" Performance Art

Getting married?Art By Ivey creates live portraits to memorialize your special day. Keep scrollin'

 Getting married?  Art by Ivey creates live portraits to memorialize your special day right at the reception.

This is performance art.  The bride and groom are the subjects of the piece.  Your guests will be wowed with the "art station" where they can stop in periodically to check the progress of the painting while enjoying the festivities.  It is truly a crowd-pleaser that will be sure to leave an impression.  Payment plans are available!


What's Your Imagination?

 "The beauty of impressionism is that it doesn't have  to be exactly like the reference.  The reference is just a blueprint.  Impressionism in art allows me to recreate the image from an imaginative  perspective, while still preserving the elements of the original  features. 
Instead of the standard venue with tables and chairs in the background, I prefer to take a fun approach to capture the vision of the couple.  If you have a theme, let's expound upon it.  If your theme is winter wonderland, how about a dance in the snow?  Or, if your occasion is royal, take a seat on your throne.  
Don't get me wrong, I will recreate an exact image if it was  requested, but that's what photographs are for. I find it to be more fun this way, for everyone involved.
You really can live out your fantasies in art."

Once Upon A Wedding Bell...


The wedding bells have a special significance as a signature of every Art By Ivey wedding portrait.  Centered at the top of every painting are two bells that can be customized to your preferences.  The bells list the date of your wedding in on one and the couple's surname on the other. Custom phrases are welcome as long as it fits!
