I am a classically trained oil painter ready to make the perfect painting for your wedding! I started painting at a young age and have had a brush in my hand ever since. As my skills developed I realized how much I love painting people and telling their stories! I see each live painting as an opportunity to capture the heart of who a couple is.

     I went on to perfect my painting technique (and eating my fare share of Nutella crêpes) in the south of France. There I developed my signature high contrast portrait style for which I am known today. Today, each oil painting I make is classically rendered by hand and made to last a lifetime. 

     Through studying great painters like Rembrandt, I became enthralled with the lost tradition of painting realistic wedding portraits. So much so that I took the opportunity to paint my beautiful wife for our wedding anniversary! I realized then that in the age of cameras we have forgotten the beauty held in the simplicity of a paint stroke. From that moment forward I’ve wanted to offer couples the most beautiful way to remember their wedding!

I'm David and it's so nice to meet you!

Things I Love

The Coast

Salt water, sunset walks & windswept hair. Charleston is where I call home.

After studying painting in France I've wanted to see the world ever since.

A cozy corner where I can read and draw is my happy place.
