5. Heidi Schwartz
originally wanted to become a singer, enrolling in Belmont University's commercial music program at the age of 19 in Nashville. But she began to paint while writing songs, and on her first album, each song had a painting connected to it. That's how she "fell into live painting," she says. During her three-hour live painting performances, Schwartz will create a piece of art that is related to the room she's in and the people in the room. She's been called "so cool" and a "gifted artist" by her clients, who note that audiences are delighted with both the process of having a live artist at the event and the finished product.
