LIVE ART / EVENT ACTIVATIONS
I started doing live art at festivals, industry events, and fundraisers in 2017. I like the opportunity to connect crowds to causes I think are important. I do it because it’s the best way to put my passion into action while also creating a deeper impact than if I were to be painting alone at home. I typically partner with Brands and NPOs that want to showcase their value based work through a unique on-site activation. We’ve used art as an entry point in Calls To Action, fundraisers, campaign work, and interactive public displays. In so many ways, witnessing the creative process unlocks meaningful and emotional connection to the subject matter on display. I feel grateful to help connect those dots!

Painting Live at the base of Aspen Mountain on International Women’s Day. This interactive mural was designed to give skiers a place to pay tribute to a woman that inspired them on one side while I painted live on the other. The turn out was great and this was my first successful “winter live art” performance!
