Denise Hopkins’ Latest Creations

I can’t get enough of Denise Hopkins’ artwork! Her gallery site is a treasure trove of visual delights. Her unique artistic style is a breath of fresh air, and her attention to detail is truly impressive. I found myself captivated by the way she captures light and movement in her paintings.

Discovering the Healing Power of Art

In 1999, Denise received hand-made art lesson coupons from her Aunt Catherine who had a little studio tucked away amid the trees of Lacombe, Louisiana. Having never taken a class or lesson before, Denise was surprised to discover that art could be more than a mere hobby– it was a powerful expression of one’s place in the world.

In 2014, amidst her life’s biggest challenges and greatest losses, Denise committed to become a full-time artist. She began with a painting-a-day project that launched not only a career, but a path through grief and a means to healing.

During the 2020 pandemic, she relocated to Pass Christian, Mississippi where she now runs a gallery dedicated to her late Aunt Catherine.

She finds never-ending inspiration on the Mississippi Coast where the birds that are so often the subject of her work grace the landscape, inviting her always to see the world’s beauty in light of its brokenness.

The Magic of Live Wedding Paintings

Discover the enchantment of Denise’s live wedding paintings, where texture, color, and movement capture the unique spirit of your big day. Transparent pricing is available for local weddings, and custom options are offered for destination events. Invest in a timeless memento that radiates love and joy, preserving the cherished memories of your celebration for generations to come.

Voices of Appreciation

 This charming gallery nestled in the heart of Pass Christian is filled with so many beautiful pieces! You’ll have a hard time selecting the perfect piece for your home since each one is something special. I picked out the one you see in my photo with a sweet yellow bird. Stop by, say hi to the amazing artist in person, and stay a while. You’ll feel right at home there! ”

“ I highly recommend Denise for your live wedding painter!! She was so sweet and quickly responded to my emails and questions. My painting is absolutely beautiful and such a statement piece in my house. I am constantly in awe every time I pass it. I get many compliments from everyone who sees it. Denise personally dropped off my painting and helped me pick out a frame afterwards. Again, I HIGHLY recommend Denise Hopkins Fine Art for your live wedding painter. You won’t be disappointed! ”

Amanda – Louisiana, USA

“ Incredible gallery and a super talented artist. The paintings and prints are gorgeous, and the space is warm and cozy. If you’re in the area, it’s a must-visit spot. ”

Rebekah Olinde – Louisiana, USA

“ NOT JUST WEDDINGS…We used Denise for a MARDI GRAS ball live artist when my husband was king. She is super talented, easy to work with, responds quickly to scheduling questions. She can even made notecards for a bride’s gift of the brides painting. Super smooth transaction. She comes highly recommended. ”

Mary – Louisiana, USA

“ Denise’s impressionistic interpretation of a live event is nothing less than stunning. With paint brush or pallet knife in hand she turns an event into a lovely reminder of a special time in a persons life. With her sparkling personality she adds to the entertainment aspect of a live painting. Many people have not ever seen a person create a painting and love watching an artist in action. A great addition to any event. ”

Catherine – Louisiana, USA

“ CANNOT say enough great things about Denise! Absolutely stunning work and definitely one of the highlights of our wedding for our guests was watching her creation come to life! Now it sits in our home as an incredible reminder of the best day ever THANK YOU. “

Kristen- Louisiana, USA

“ I would like to take a moment to acknowledge Denise and her talent. We chose Denise as our live wedding painter and could not have been happier with our choice (and I am extremely picky). She did an amazing job at capturing our guests, the second line band, and the venue. She has a keen eye and puts that to her paintings. It will be a piece we cherish for the rest of our lives. Denise herself is also very kind and has great energy. Our 3 flower girls gravitated to her right away. ”
