Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 17, 2023From Chicago, IL

Ellen was a great addition to our birthday party. She arrived early, stayed late and was very accommodating. All my guests commented on how nice she was and everyone loved their portraits. I highly recommend Ellen for your next event!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on May 10, 2023From Carmel, IN

If I could give Ellen more than 5 stars I would. She finished the piece I asked for quickly and was responsive to all correspondence we had during the transaction. I would love to have her for a live event!
