Darci brings colored gel pens and the guests are encouraged to write a personal message next to their silhouette in this special keepsake album. For this package, the guest's silhouette is put in a beveled edge mat board black frame.
A couple of phrases Darci hears a lot when she is cutting out silhouettes are " amazing!" and "I have never had this done before". Darci cuts quickly & her attention to detail is enjoyed by all.

Darci arrived early and was very professional. With her thorough explanation of what she provides and what sets her apart from everyone else is why we went with her. Everyone was so happy with their caricatures and happy with her as a person in general. Great conversation and positive attitude towards all guests and was willing to accommodate each person's requests. We would definitely have her at another one of our events! -Joshua N, Alhambra, CA (gig ID# 3296983) 6/3/18

Darci was excellent! Everyone at the party was so happy with their caricatures. She did a great job of accenting people's features without making them look ridiculously accented. We actually had her stay a little longer because so many people wanted group caricatures. I would highly recommend her and would ask her to come to back again.

Darci was great! I was on the fence about having a caricature artist for my xmas party but I'm so glad I did. Darci is very professional, friendly, and has awesome energy. My guests loved having her as did I. She took pictures of me and my husband and drew us while we were busy hosting. If you are thinking of booking a caricature artist go with Darci. You wont be disappointed.

Hiring Darci to do caricatures at my kids graduation party was the best decision. She was friendly and engaging with everyone and worked quickly to turn out beautiful caricatures to all who sat down. She took requests of poses and accomodated multiple people in the caricatures. Teens loved it, parents loved having pictures of their kids drawn and everyone walked away happy.
