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!
"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."
