Now booking 2024 live wedding painting and live sketching for weddings and other events

Live Event Art at Corporate Events - 2023 edition

Happy New Year ! I hope 2024 brings you joy and happiness and the very best in your life. 

I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to you as we enter a new year ! 

I am very thankful for all the amazing opportunities - both commissioned and live event art - that have come my way . These clients range from  corporate clients , wedding clients , small business owners and brands.

At various events , I offered live sketching , engraving and wood burning . 


Some of the corporate events ranged from corporate retreats to Holiday parties. 


At a medical conference held at Baltimore Marriott  Waterfront, I offered wood burning coasters for the guests. The coasters were personalized with names and small messages. While I’m hired more often for engraving items, this was a refreshing experience to work with the wood burning tool .

Bloomingdales , Coty Inc , hired me to work on multiple projects throughout the year for in store events . I was hired to engrave perfume bottles and do calligraphy on David Yurman gift boxes and cards. 

Bloomingdales is a long time client and I enjoy working with their teams at various locations in the DC-MD-VA area.

By the time the Holiday season rolled around , I had different bags with different tools + art supplies for each service, so it would be easier to pack and be organized. For the Christmas parties for corporate clients, I was hired to sketch guest portraits . The portraits were favors for the guests to take home post the event. 

I sketched within the DC-MD- VA and Boston area for these events.

Each event is focussed on providing value to the client and the client’s guests . Elevating guest experiences through personalization is always appreciated , whether it's a corporate party , corporate gifting, wedding or if it is a shopping experience . People love seeing something of themselves incorporated in the end result - a fun fashion illustration , their name engraved on a wine glass, a fun phrase engraved on a wine bottle . Some of the corporate clients had events for families - where I sketched groups of two or more people. Children love the experience of being turned into a sketch .

Families were especially excited about receiving a sketch that they wanted to use as their Holiday card this year . 

After a busy season of events, I’m now unpacking my bags, and organizing my studio . I’ve been stepping on shipping supplies , bubble wraps .. so it was time to clean everything up and start fresh for 2024 ! 

I’ve been getting inquiries for live sketching , engraving at various events for 2024 and 2025 . 

If you are interested in working with me to incorporate live sketching , engraving and maybe woodburning , for corporate retreats, weddings please contact me . I’d love to hear from you. 

If you are a event planner working with a corporate client or a luxury brand , this is a great way to engage the guests during the event to create more brand and company awareness . The guests will appreciate the personalization aspect during the holidays, especially.

If you are planning a luxury wedding , I'm here to create that experience for your guests. Every guest receiving something personal on your special day makes it a very memorable experience for you and them. 

While I am based in the Washington DC metropolitan area , and serve the DC - MD - VA region, I do travel for events 

So please reach out to me and lets work together.

Lakshmi
