Wedding Paintings & Live Event Art
Speaking about the experience of live event painting, portrait artist Ann Marshall Bailey relates: “From the minute I walk into the event space to begin setting up to paint from life, until after it’s over and my easel is packed up and I’m leaving, I feel a huge excitement and pleasure at being part of the guests’ experience. . . I am so honored to be part of the event’s ‘Cool’ factor!”
Live Event Portrait Artist Ann Marshall Bailey
Trained in classic painting techniques and the history of fine art in high school, Ann Marshall (Bailey) was a prominent student in the life painting group at Emory University under visiting professor Mollie Micala Lyman. She joined the Executive Board of the prestigious Portrait Society of Atlanta in 2011 as President.
Bailey’s recently completed oil painting series, “New Legends of Atlanta,” depicts contemporary portraits of famous Atlanta graduates, including Ryan Seacrest, Usher, Outkast, and others. The series has received popular acclaim and news coverage during public shows over the past five years.
Competition live event plein air paintings by Bailey have won awards and been purchased off the easel throughout the east coast, and her locally collected work is held in collections ranging from the Ryan Seacrest Family Foundation to the office of the CEO of Zoo Atlanta.
Live Event & Wedding Painter
Now, combining both classic portraiture and rapid, life painting, Bailey is a driving force in the Atlanta area for live event painting, bringing her own and a number of her colleagues’ talents together for both individual and group events, such as the 2015 and 2016 Voila Gala Fundraisers in Roswell, GA. She is Publicity Chair for the 2017 Roswell Mardi Gras Ball event to be hosted by the popular non-profit, The Voila Foundation.
