Meet Amy Moreno Live Event Painting!

Amy Cullings Moreno is a solo artist and live event painter! Yup, that’s right. She captures the essence and fun of your event into a painting AS IT’S HAPPENING. Amy paints events live as they unfold. She also paints portraits or wedding bouquets, gowns, or vinettes from photos (She makes sure not to use any photos with copyrights!). She’s been in the art biz for 30 years as an illustrator. This talented lady knows what she’s doing! Her favorite part is being able to give her clients a finished painting commemorating their special celebration and joy. If you’re looking for a unique touch to your event, Amy’s your gal!

She’ll be live painting our DC Vendor Social!! It’s coming up fast so grab your tickets on Eventbrite! See some of her amazing artwork and read about this gifted artist below! 

Why did you decide to start your own company? How long have you been in business?

I have been in business for 30 years as a children’s illustrator and recently have begun to focus on painting live events and portraits. I have always loved capturing stories in art and conveying the emotions and feelings this way.


How did you come up with the name of your company?

I have been using my name as the main portion of my company name due to the fact that I work in a variety of styles and services as an artist and instructor.


What is your favorite part about what you do?

I especially look forward to providing the couple or people involved in the celebrations or events with a finished oil painting that captures them as they celebrate. It’s a joy and an honor to attend the event and paint it, seeing people celebrate with loved ones during times that are highlights of their lives.


Do you have a favorite story related to your business?

I have only recently begun to paint live events, so I don’t have a long history in this aspect of my business, but I did have a very special time creating a painting for a baby shower for a new young mother. The woman was overjoyed with the painting of her baby shower. I was thrilled to be able to create a painting for her to keep for years to come, including the friends and family and images of the gifts and venue.


Do you have a favorite type of event?

I love all weddings. Beach weddings, rustic weddings, formal, and weddings from cultures and backgrounds I’m not as familiar with are fascinating to me.


Is there anything you’d like our readers to know about you personally?

I’m a children’s illustrator with 30 years of experience as a professional artist. I’m a mom of three grown kids and live in Northern VA. I’m a copyist at the National Gallery of Art and am currently working on copying a painting from the school of Rembrandt called Girl With a Broom. I’m fluent in Spanish and love being around people and celebrating with them.


Do you have a team or do you work solo?

I work solo
