Kendra Scott Fall 18 Southampton X Live Sketch by Deanna First

I was honored when one of my favorite jewelry brands Kendra Scott approached me to live sketch at their store in Southampton to celebrate the upcoming launch of Kendra Scott Fall 2018 line!

I've only been to The Hamptons a handful of times so it was exciting to get the chance to go back. I custom drew their Filigree Photo Frame in antique silver and rose gold prior to the event. I always leave a little bit of space for my sketches which take roughly 5-7 minutes to draw. 

Customers could sip on lemonade, get sketches and were treated to their favorite snacks with every purchase. 

If you missed me this time I will be back in September at the opening of their Soho store in NYC! TBA specific date and time but stay tuned. :)


ShopStyle Brunch X Deanna First Sketches at 1 Hotel BK by Deanna First

I was thrilled to work with ShopStyle for the first time this week at The Osprey located inside of 1 Hotel Brooklyn this week! The event was a beautifully executed brunch to celebrate ShopStyle's partnerships throughout the years. Guests could pick from 1 out of 2 backgrounds representing either the Brooklyn Bridge or a Rooftop overlooking the NYC skyline. I pre-illustrated the backgrounds and added in logo in advance.

This was fitting considering the venue location and hotel that is known for its stunning rooftop views! I attached a few photos from the event. Note, that my live sketches are done in 5-7 minutes each! Hope you enjoy!

Proud to announce my very first event with Lafayette 148 New York this past week at Nordstrom UTC in San Diego on March 15th. Their Spring 2018 Collection is inspired by the power and confidence of women artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell. I am beyond honored to be a part of their #WomenArtists series.
