A bride who has lost her father can now experience the Father/daughter walk down the aisle in a custom painting. There is no argument that wedding photographs are priceless. They allow the couple to re-live those precious moments over and over again after the wedding. Some moments, however, are impossible to capture because they could […]

The Father/Daughter Walk

“I chatted with a few of the guests, and from what they had to say, this was the ‘biggest and baddest’ wedding of all time. A lot of them had never seen a live wedding painter before. They seemed delighted with the concept and with the painting itself, and that’s always a treat for me!”

I made a mistake. I admit it, plain and simple. I messed up. Oops. Thankfully, I’m a PRO at making mistakes, so I was able to recover quickly and painlessly, from this one anyway. If you’re interested in peeking behind the curtain of my brand, and watching the very human person humbly recovering from her […]

Stephanie at college graduation

May 15, 2019

In 2009 when I started college, and I chose graphic design as a major, because I was told “there are no jobs in painting and drawing.” Even though that’s obviously a false statement, I believed those advisors (ahem and my parents) and got started learning the basics of the graphic arts. While I was in […]

The Career I Never Knew I Wanted

I live in New Orleans, Louisiana, aka The Big Easy. This place is littered with gorgeous historic buildings like antebellum plantations, shaded in 200 year-old Oak trees with Spanish moss dripping from their massive branches. The barns and slave quarters on the properties still stand and are pristinely maintained. While these buildings may seem unconventional […]

I’ve been struggling with an identity crisis lately. Not the kind where I wonder who I am – I know exactly who I am. It’s more of a brand issue. You see, a few years back, when I started my business, I had to think of a name to call it. I wrote down and […]

Hi I'm stephanie, nice to meet you!

meet the Artist

I'm Stephanie T. Gaffney, and my company is Torregrossa Fine Art. I'm an artist in New Orleans who specializes in live wedding painting. That means I get to travel to venues all over the world to paint couples on the happiest day of their lives.

When I'm not painting on-site at weddings on the weekends, I can be found in my home studio, producing beautiful paintings from photographs. In my opinion, I have the coolest job in the world.
