About
I began drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil, eventually setting my sights on Caricature. When I lost my job working in a local hospital I got hired atSix Flags Great America. I had to create a whole new career path and have been enjoying it ever since.For the last 18 years I have honed my skills as an artist and made a niche' for myself. I found myself enjoying entertaining people and making their events even more memorable. It is truly a performance art and I am a great PERRFORMER!
Mikki's love of face painting began on a trip to the Renisance Faire and has blossomed into a talent that leaves her clients always wanting more! From simple cheek designs to elaborate full face pieces, Mikki caters to her customers wants and needs! Children love to sit and have their faces painted! Parents are amazed to see their children's faces come to life as their favorite super hero, cuddly puppy dog or a beautiful butterfly! She's been painting for several years and has a very vivid imagination which she loves to transfer onto faces or bodies!
Face Painting is a great idea for birthday parties, carnivals, graduations, sleep overs, scouting advancements, use your imagination, the possibilities are endless.

My husband and I hired David so our guest could have something extra to do at the wedding reception. We didn't want to have a photo booth because everyone does that these days. We wanted something different and unique, so that is when we found David THE CARICATURE ARTIST!!!! Our guests were so surprised that we had a caricature artist at the wedding. They loved having their pictures drawn! David was very friendly, talented, and accommodating with all our guests. He is reasonably priced, too. We highly recommend having David entertain your guest at your next event. We can't wait to see him again at another event of ours! Thank you David! You made our wedding perfect!

Overall experience was wonderful. We hosted an open house for our clients (we are an Animal Services facility - animal hospital, boarding, and a pet supply store) and Dave drew caricatures of their pets. Everyone who got one drawn left with a smile.

Dave Curbis worked our end of the school year event. He efficiently worked with dozens of students in a short time period. Additionally, he recommended and secured a face painter artist and an additional assistant who were also very talented to work our event. Highly recommended!

Mr. Curbis arrived early for set up, charmingly entertained the guests as he did portraits (we did couples), and stayed until everyone had had a turn. Everyone thought it was a great idea for him to be at the party and added another element of fun and excitement to it. I was extremely pleased!

I hired a caricature artist for my sons 1st birthday party. Dave was WONDERFUL! The kids were excited to see someone was going to draw pictures......I know the adults LOVED it also. Dave was very professional...and everyone enjoyed his work. I would definitely recommend him and use him again. The birthday boy fell asleep so he was able to do a caricature from a recent photo. He was professional, arrived on time and the price was wonderful for the amount of time reserved. Thanks Dave
