Welcome to Canvas by Design - Live Wedding Artist, where artistry and love come together to create timeless memories. Natalie Lotriet, a Perth based artist, specialising in the unique art form of live wedding painting and live guest illustrations. Your wedding day is a momentous occasion, and what better way to preserve its beauty than through a captivating, hand-painted masterpiece!

Natalie's artistic journey began in 1994, fueled by a deep desire to create art that speaks to the soul. With every brushstroke, she captures the essence of your wedding day, transforming it into a work of art that tells a story and evokes powerful emotions. Whether she is meticulously recreating the intricate details of reality or interpreting the beauty of nature through abstract forms, Natalie's artistry speaks volumes.

Simply fill in the enquiry details and I will usually respond within 24 - 48 hours.

I create your painting using professional-grade acrylics on a canvas. Once the artwork is finished, I apply a gloss finish varnish. This not only enhances the visual appeal but also acts as a protective shield, guarding your masterpiece against colour-fading UV rays and dust.

I offer 3 Live Wedding Painting packages with prices starting at $1500 for a 18" x 24" canvas. This includes travel to your event if within 50km radius of the Perth metro area. 

I sure do!  Here are some ideas that would make a beautiful painting...

- First kiss

- After "I do"

- Ceremony exit

- Cutting the cake

- Holding hands looking at eachother

- First dance

- walking into the reception

Or you may want a surprise by giving me full creative freedom to capture a special moment for you.

The options are literally endless, if you have any requests please don't be shy to ask!

A live wedding artist can add a unique and personal touch to your special day, capturing the essence of your love on canvas.  It's a great way to add some entertainment to your wedding, and your guests will love watching the artist create a beautiful piece of art right before their eyes. 

?A live wedding artist can also be a great conversation starter and help break the ice between guests who may not know each other.

?Before the big day!

1. Check your wedding date availability by leaving an enquiry via the contact tab. I will generally reply within 24-48 hours.

?2. Secure your date with a 20% deposit.  Final payment would be due upon completion of the artwork, which is usually 2-4 weeks after your special day.

?3. Consultation: 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding, we will have a full planning consultation to design your artwork. We will discuss colours, preferences, scenes, poses, and anything else that is important to you on your wedding day.

The Wedding Day

1. I ideally will arrive 3-4 hours prior to the ceremony commencing to begin painting the background. Typically, I'm at a venue for 7 to 9 hours total, including setup and clean-up.

?2. During your chosen scene, I will take photos and notes to use for reference throughout your special day.? Once I have captured your special moment, I will then start adding the newlyweds to the scene.  The painting will already be underway before the first guests arrive.

?3. At the end of the day, your painting will look mostly complete.  I aim to get all the main elements into the painting before the end of the event, so the newlyweds and guests can see what looks like a finished painting. I will then take the painting back to my studio to complete the final touches and to varnish the artwork to seal and protect.  This process will normally take 2-4 weeks depending on the size of the painting.

?4. Your painting will be professionally packaged and shipped to you, or a local pick-up will be arranged.

So grateful to have had Natalie as our wedding painter! Natalie picked the perfect spot to capture at our wedding day. It was amazing seeing the painting come to life on the wedding day and when we received the final product it was so incredibly detailed and life like. Thankyou Natalie!

Natalie painted live at my wedding in March this year. WOW what an amazing piece of art work I now have to treasure for years to come! Natalie is so talented but also so down to earth. My guests loved interacting with her and watching the painting come to life. I would highly recommend having Natalie at your wedding as a live artist!
