The thing that makes event planning in the city of Pittsburgh so special is the outstanding talent of vendors. We are constantly amazed by the diverse talent offered and love incorporating these fresh and new elements into our events. It doesn’t get more innovative than a chalkboard artist. Andrea Casey is a local chalkboard artist who has been in business for a year and is passionate about her career doing something she genuinely enjoys. Andrea comments, “I have such a feeling of exuberance whenever someone wants my art work to be part of their most intimate and momentous events”. She is completely honored by being included in a couple’s wedding day. When we asked Andrea why she decided to embark upon this field of business she replied, “I’ve always known I would fall into some type of art-related job but I never dreamed of being able to start my own business so soon, which is basically me doodling for a living! I had a sort of forced epiphany when I was working in a screen printing T-shirt factory one year ago. After weeks of vision changing and debilitating headaches from being exposed to toxic aerosols, I realized it was better for me to work for myself doing what I love rather than working in an unhealthy environment.”
Chalkboard artistry is quickly gaining popularity and adds a trendy touch to any style of wedding or event. When asked why clients should choose her service Andrea replied, “Anyone can go to a print shop and choose from a limited selection of “clip art” looking designs for their invitations or event signage. I provide one of a kind, hand drawn, custom illustrated chalkboards that will highlight your event and offer that special detailing that you will remember forever”. We at Epic Event Planning know the importance of the extra added touches and details. Previous clients have used chalkboard artistry as a wedding ceremony or reception welcome, a fun way to list an event menu, a modern display of a wedding program, the possibilities are endless!!
