Meet the artists

Hi! I'm Laura Herndon. I am the artist behind the easel with paint brush in hand at so many Texas wedding receptions. I live in San Antonio and specialize in live wedding painting, which means, I get to use my gifts in creativity to bless couples by commemorating their special day.  I paint on-site and live at weddings on the weekends, and during the week can be found in my home studio, perfecting the finishing details on wedding paintings and making custom artworks and prints.  I specialize in acrylic and watercolor, but I also dabble in other creative endeavors, like ceramics and pottery. I feel so blessed to do what I love best to bring enjoyment to others.  

The greatest blessing in my life is my wonderful family.  My husband Thomas I have been married for 25 years and we hope to hit our 50th someday!  We have three children…Maura, Kaleb, and Micah, ages 21, 16, and 12.  Maura is also painting live at weddings in the Tyler area and I am so happy to see her embracing her artistic side. We also have three doggies named Lilly, Myla, and Penny.

I would also like to mention that I am thankful to Jesus, my church and friends, and of course the wonderful couples who I have painted for through the years.  Thank you for being so supportive of me on this journey.  Without you, I would not be where I am today.

Maura has experience in various art forms, including pastel, calligraphy, collage, leatherwork, knitting, singing, theatre, and most importantly, acrylic paints. After assisting Laura Herndon at wedding paintings for several years and fine-tuning her skill, Maura is now working as an independent wedding painter available in the northeast Texas near Tyler.

Maura’s impressionist, romanticist style is inspired by the atmosphere of the wedding and the stories of her subjects. She looks forward to connecting with couples and blessing them with a painting from their special day.

"I truly cannot say enough good things about Laura and her work. She was so kind, helpful, prompt, and professional throughout the entire process. Our guests loved interacting with her, and our nephews who made a few brushstrokes can’t stop talking about it! The details in her paintings are phenomenal, and we are over the moon with our special keepsake."

"Laura is an amazing artist and I’m so grateful for the beautiful painting she did at my daughter’s wedding! I would highly recommend her to all, her talent is a forever memory that will be cherished." 

"Laura is a remarkable artist! She created an astounding 36X48 work of art that left me speechless when I saw it. There are layers and tones of stunning color with intuitively well sized and placed images. It is a heartfelt painting done by a heartfelt artist. Because of what it represents, it is to me the most valuable item I have in my home. As an artist, Laura’s skill is a mixture of both inspiration and technique. She is professional, thoughtful, and so very talented."
