My name is Rina Newton, and my journey into the world of art began under the influence of my father, who has always been my greatest inspiration. From a young age, I was drawn to the canvas, channeling my creativity into vibrant expressions that mirrored my evolving perspective.

Though I initially pursued a different career path, my passion for art remained undiminished. Over the years, this passion has crystallized into a focused endeavor where I capture the essence of couples' special moments, transforming them into timeless keepsakes that they can cherish for a lifetime.

Acrylics were my first love in the realm of art mediums, serving as a faithful companion in my early explorations. As I grew more adventurous, I began experimenting with watercolors and oils, each medium adding a unique texture and depth to my work. This exploration has not only enriched my artistic repertoire but has also deepened my connection to my work, making each piece a testament to a lifelong journey of learning and love.

Hi, I'm Rina Newton! I am an artist specializing in live wedding portraits and paintings.

Living in Stoney Creek, Ontario, I have dedicated myself to creating beautiful, personalized artwork for couples on their special day. I work alone, ensuring that each piece I create is infused with my unique vision and attention to detail.

The majority of my work is self-initiated, focusing on capturing the essence of individuals through live portraiture. I find inspiration in a variety of settings, from intimate wedding ceremonies to grand reception venues. My live paintings are created on-site, allowing me to capture the atmosphere and emotion of the moment in real-time.

In addition to live wedding portraits, I also undertake commission work. Each commissioned piece is crafted with care, incorporating elements that are meaningful to the couple. Whether it's a favorite location or a cherished memory, I strive to bring your vision to life through my art.

I am passionate about creating lasting memories through my paintings, offering a unique and personalized touch to every wedding I attend. If you would like to discuss having a live painting at your wedding or commission a custom piece, please contact me to schedule a consultation. I look forward to creating something beautiful together!
