Entertainment: “My favorite entertainer is performance artist and speed painter Jessica K. Haas. It is difficult to find another entertainer more versatile, unexpected, and expansive than Jessica. She does more than paint fast; she can paint an entire mural in minutes, open for A-list musicians, or create an entire menu of creative, never-before-seen options for your client. Transforming a blank canvas into a masterpiece in under 90 seconds is the 'easiest’ thing she does, [and] she can transform anything into a masterpiece in minutes (cars, apparel, full-scale walls, and whole interiors). Jessica takes creativity to unimaginable heights, turning normal moments into one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experiences.”
Photography/Videography: “Capturing a live event is such an integral part and element of any live event. My go-to for photo and video is Giddens & Co. Visuals. The thing that makes them stand out is their flexibility to work in the high-paced, and sometimes stressful, conditions of capturing a live event or production. They do an exceptional job of understanding what my needs are and do a great job of exceeding expectations.”
