LIVE Caricatures OR Silhouettes, and NOW, VIRTUAL Caricatures or Silhouettes! The same artistry, either way! :-) UPDATE 3-27-21: Emily is now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, and is looking forward to being booked for YOUR live events! Your guests will be charmed and AMAZED when you invite caricature/silhouette artist Emily Byrne to your party, whether it's in real life or virtual! ! It's so much fun to watch spot-on, yet light-hearted likenesses emerge from her pen or scissors, in only minutes per face. Caricatures or silhouettes are double the value for your entertainment budget; they're not only a unique, customized live art experience---they're also the party favor that your attendees will treasure forever! Emily is now offering VIRTUAL caricatures or silhouettes via ZOOM! Your home-based guests or employees can enjoy seeing the same artistry over their screens anywhere in the world! This is offered at a lower rate than in-person services; scroll down for more information below. For live events, choose caricatures OR silhouettes, she only does one art form at a time, as they require different set-ups and supplies. For virtual events, since she is in her own art studio, you can combine the two. Please click on my VIDEOS above to SEE just how much fun live caricatures and silhouettes can be! :-D CARICATURES: Emily has caricatured everyone from newborns to one-hundred-year-olds...and is proud of her 20+ years of professional experience at all types of events, from casual to formal. She is known for her super-specific, uncanny likenesses! She draws approximately 12-14 faces per hour in shaded B&W, OR 18-20 faces per hour without the shading. She uses archival ink markers, and quality heavyweight paper. Each drawing gets its own plastic sleeve. As an award-winning Gold member of the International Society of Caricature Artists, Emily is passionate about her craft. At events, her clients remark that they can plainly see how much she enjoys what she does for a living--putting smiles on faces, both literally and figuratively! SILHOUETTES: Emily has mastered the amazing-to-watch, historic skill of freehand silhouette cutting--no drawing is involved at all, she just looks at each subject and cuts an accurate profile, capturing the essence of each person, in a minute or two! The delightful result then is pasted to a customized-for-your-event 5 x 7 card and placed in a clear plastic sleeve for your guests to take home and treasure. She can cut 18-20 faces per hour. There are only a handful of silhouette artists working events in the world today! VIRTUAL: Keeping up with the times now means servicing clients anywhere via Zoom and other virtual platforms. Emily can draw 6-7 faces per hour in color, and 8-9 in B/W, using her Wacom Intuos and Macbook Pro. All bookings include a logo or title of your event on your backgrounds, if desired. Emily can also design pre-drawn bodies and backgrounds, or make a composite group caricature after your event, for an additional fee. You can see the drawing grow as Emily looks at her subjects in a Zoom window. Or, Emily can cut silhouettes the same way, as subjects sit in profile for her anywhere in the world! Delivery is via Dropbox after the event. There is a two-hour minimum for all live events; however for wedding receptions and further-away gigs, there is a three-hour minimum. For virtual events there is a one-hour minimum. Emily also carries event liability insurance if your venue requires it. Please check out Emily's feedback below from her fantastic The Bash/Gigmasters clients--it speaks for itself :-)

Corporate FunctionReviewed on October 8, 2021From Chestertown, MD

Emily did an amazing job at our company's 75th anniversary party! She was warm and welcoming and made guests feel very comfortable while getting their caricature drawn. She is an incredibly talented artist and her work was a great addition to our evening. She agreed to work for us for an extra half hour at the end of a very long evening because so many people wanted their caricatures drawn! Emily was a pleasure to have at our event! I highly recommend her!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 11, 2021From Dover, DE

I highly recommend Emily! I hired her to do caricatures for my husband's surprise 60th birthday party and she was an excellent addition to the event! I think that having entertainment like this at a party is a very good ice breaker and Emily has a warm personality that made everyone feel comfortable and excited to have their caricature drawn. She is spot on at portraying peoples personalities in her drawings! She is also extremely professional in both how she conducts herself at the event and in handling communication prior to the event. I felt very comfortable that she would be there as scheduled and knew exactly what she would provide. Thank you Emily!

WeddingReviewed on August 27, 2021From West Chester, PA

Emily and the silhouettes she was able to make for all of the guests at our Victorian-boho wedding were amazing. Our guests were awed by her skills and loved having their silhouette serve as a memorable and one-of-kind take-hime gift. We are so grateful to have been able to work with Emily and can’t say enough great things about her art and sincere enthusiasm for what she does. Thank you so much Emily for making our special day, extra special. We loved having you there , and wish you all the best. Thank you so much for everything ! Brit + Drew
