We wanted something unique for our wedding reception since the photo booths are played out. Karen was a hit!!! Her work is amazing and my guest all loved it. She was able to set up directions weeks in advance, accommodate to me needs and then executed flawlessly without follow up as I was busy being a bride. We highly recommendMay 3, 2019VerifiedQuick-Draw-Karen's reply
thanks Jess! it was a beautiful wedding. and thanks for dinner too!
Karen was the caricature for our 20th wedding anniversary party June 29th. We had a change in venue a week before the event and she had no problem driving an additional 20 minutes to the new venue. She was a huge hit and I almost didn't get a drawing due to the long line!!! Thank you Karen for helping to make my event magical! Blessing to you and your business.Jul 30, 2019Verified
Very good work, and so quick! Thanks Karen you are truly exceptional at your work.Nov 12, 2018Verified
We hired Karen for a 50th birthday party. I would say she did a good job. We hired a similar artist in the past for a children's birthday party and it seemed he was much quicker and did full color drawings. I will say that this was a very hot evening and the conditions were less than optimal. The most important thing is that our guests were happy with their drawings and that is what matters in the end.Jun 13, 2016Verified
Karen is wonderful! She drew for my Halloween party this year, and everyone loved getting a caricature of themselves in costume! Very talented lady, she really captures the spirit of people in her drawings! Very professional, friendly, and overall great artist. I would certainly re-hire her, and recommend to friends.Nov 2, 2015VerifiedQuick-Draw-Karen's reply
Thank you Donna! The party was definitely..."unique"!!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. I charge $125/hour up to 3 hours then $100/hr after that. This is for any type of CARICATURE, any size. I draw PROFILES, 3/4 or FULL FACES. I don't usually draw little bodies or use color. I prefer to concentrate on likeness rather than speed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to communicate via email so we have everything in writing and we can work out all the details. Once I get all their information, I'll make up a contract between us and ask for a small deposit to hold their date. Once the contract is signed and the deposit received, it's a go! I try to show up about 1/2 hour early to set up and make sure all the details are set. Then I draw! I usually draw for 2 hours straight before I take a break.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA degree in Art from the University of California, Davis, and I've taken both PORTRAIT & CARICATURE classes in the past. The best thing I do is go to a caricature convention where we can draw uninhibited and get great tips from other artists. I also got my start working at DISNEYLAND, so that was a great boost.
