What you'll do

Have you always wanted to meet a famous artist?
Now you can.

Vincent Van Gogh will guide you through the Scottish National Gallery and you can see the Impressionism and Post-Impressionism paintings that changed the world.

We will meet at a secret location.

Once you book the event the address will be revealed. Vincent will greet you and paint your portrait, while he reveals the foundations in his life. Both as a young boy and later as an artist.

After an hour with Vincent, we meet Walter and we will head to the museum. We can see some of my friends' artwork.
NOTE:
This closely resembles the show I do in NYC at The Met and The MoMa. and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows.

2019 will be the 4th and Final year I am attending the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

On the Fringe Festival circuit, I have gained a deeper knowledge of performing, art, and the creative process.

I've been shortlisted for the Sustainability Award in Edinburgh for my work in 2017 Fringe.
I have been awarded the Inaugural Spirit of The Fringe for Cincy Fringe in 2018.
I have been awarded the Marketing Award at the Orlando Fringe in 2018.
Look forward to sharing my HeArt & Spirit with you.

I feel blessed to have met Vincent and Walter! This was a once in a lifetime experience which I will remember for the rest of my life. I adore Van Gogh, the misunderstood genius, and Walter brought him to life for me. I laughed, I wept, and I felt an amazing connection. If you love Vincent, this experience is your chance to meet him. Don’t let it pass you by.

Vincent Van Goch is Walter’s doppleganger. It’s a memorable performance and very intense. Walter takes you back to visit Van Goch as readily as meeting anyone in person in a cafe. Not only is Walter connected to the larger than life artist whom he so strongly resembles - but his story connects you also to the painter and his times. Highly recommended!

This was a fun experience. Walter dresses and act like Vincent Van Gogh while drawing your portrait. We also went to the Museum and saw a Van Gogh painting and other impressionists' beautiful works of art. This was a great afternoon!!
