Amy provided excellent service and professionalism. I would recommend Amy to anyone who was looking for a Caricature Artist. Amy arrived early to allow for set-up so that she could begin on time and she was not watching the clock! Everyone absolutely LOVED their caricature. These caricatures are a keepsake that our family will cherish forever. I want to thank Amy for providing such lovely work. In the future I will definitely ask Amy to come to our family parties for more caricature fun! I would describe Amy as wonderful, talented, fun, amazing, friendly, professional, kind, gifted, prompt & an all around nice person. Thank you for everything Amy. We appreciate you!
Amy has been drawing caricatures since 2003, beginning with her first job at Six Flags Over Texas. Since then, she has earned a BFA in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009. Now Amy currently works as a freelance illustrator and also as a caricature artist for events, parties, etc!
Amy can draw your friends, family, guests and even pets at your party or event. A two hour minimum is required for live caricature services and an additional fee may apply for further locations. Amy draws her caricatures on a sheet of heavy weight 11" x 14" paper with markers. All of her materials are archival quality, so they will hold up for years to come as a memento of your event! She can draw each face in about 3 minutes (up to 20 per hour for faces only, 10-12 per hour for full body caricatures, or 8-10 per hour for faces only in full color.) She can fit several faces in one drawing if your guests would like to be drawn in groups, although pairs and singles tend to look best.
All that is required for set up are two or three chairs–one for the artist and one or two for the guest(s) being drawn. For the outdoors, a shady spot is preferred as your guests will be hard to draw if they are squinting at the sun! Amy provides her own drawing easel, drawing materials, lights and small table. For digital caricatures, chairs, an indoor area and electrical outlets will be needed.
As additional features, Amy can do caricatures based on a theme (for example, base the theme on your child's favorite cartoon for his/her birthday party!) or print the paper ahead of time with commemorative text (great for weddings and other cherished moments) or your business logo. Please let her know in advance if you have any ideas for added extras so preparations can be made.
**Please note that CARICATURES WILL BE DRAWN IN BLACK & WHITE, unless color caricatures are discussed in advance.**
