JACQUELINE REYNOSO // TEXAS WEDDING PAINTER

Jacqueline was born in the Grand Canyon State of Arizona. Her love for drawing and painting started at a young age and for most of her life it just remained a hobby. She moved to San Antonio Texas in 2006. She dabbled in her hobby here and there but it wasn’t until in 2017 she was asked to paint some sport logo paintings that she began to take a renewed interest in pursuing art professionally.  

Jacqueline loves to travel and has traveled all over the world. Egypt, Europe, Caribbean Islands and her trucking career allowed her to travel all over the US. As she traveled she explored art all over the world. She has been to the Louvre Museum in Paris, France and seen the Mona Lisa and many other famous artists work. 

In early 2021, she decided to quit life on the road as a truck driver and work on her art career. With support from her family, friends and clients she was able to gain the confidence to fully pursue her lifelong dream of becoming full time artist. She was accepted into San Antonio Artist Collective in August 2021 and about a month later she had art in Alas Pa Volar Gallery.

From that point she started Live Painting  at Festivals and Art shows in San Antonio. In November 2021, she got accepted into one of the best galleries in Miami Wynwood Art District for her Abstract Lines. Miami is where she started with her first Live Wedding Paintings and in January 2022 she started with Snap Chic Wedding Painting.

KAITLIN HENNESSY // TEXAS WEDDING PAINTER

819A3670.jpg

Kaitlin grew up in Lancaster, Ohio, and since leaving for college in 2008, she's enjoyed the opportunities to relocate to new cities while continuing her education. Art has always come naturally as a way of expressing herself. 

 

It wasn’t until grad school that her creative hobby began to transition into a more professional role, she became known for custom painted shoes and jean jackets. As she emerged as an artist her work has consisted of a wide variety of subject matter from wearable art, to hundreds of commission portraits (pets and people), murals and live painting events. 

 

Using mostly acrylic paint with a few other mixed-media material like gold, silver and copper leaf, her paintings are an expressive style in a variation of realism to abstract pieces.

 

Today she spilts her time between original paintings created in the studio, and painting at live events. Most of her original works in the studio consist of cityscapes, and her newest and most popular collection of bourbon and whiskey bottles. She loves studying and experimenting with different lighting in the glass, inspired by the vibrant colors seen in the reflections.

She enjoys using her creative voice to express emotion and connect with her subjects. Painting live events has opened new doors to connect with others and share her artwork. She thrives in the endless inspiration at a wedding, and pouring that into a canvas to preserve the emotions for her clients on their most important day has been extremely gratifying.

 

Most days you can find her with the helpful golden paws of her four legged assistant, Tito, in the studio creating, and most definitely with paint in her hair and possibly Tito's fur!
