Introduction: My caricatures have AMAZING LIKENESSES--there will be no doubt about the subject of each one. Likeness and humor are the reasons why my caricatures end up as treasures on people's walls for many years to come, and make YOU look good as party-giver. My silhouettes are cut without drawing anything--I just look at the person and cut out an amusing profile of them to be pasted to a card customized for your event! I'm also VERY fast at drawing or silhouetting...which makes it very entertaining for those watching, and means I get dozens of people done per event. My studio caricatures have the same attention to likeness, but are high-quality illustrations which make the most fantastic gifts for milestone weddings, retirement, anniversaries, corporate gifts, you name it. I like knowing that the five minutes spent getting a caricature ( or two miutes getting a silhouette cut) at an event will put smiles on faces, those of the sitter and their families and friends, right then and there, and also for many years after I draw it! The same goes for my studio gift caricatures. The person who receives one knows that it is uniquely made just for them.

Everyone loved the caricatures! It was a big hit at our wedding. We would have liked the option to keep her going for longer as we found out afterward there were some people waiting who did not get their caricature done. Overall definitely worth the money.

I was planning a high school graduation party for my daughter and felt I needed some sort of entertainment that would appeal to everyone and make for a memorable occasion. One of my first ideas was to bring in a mobile photobooth to have people get pictures together. After researching this and thinking about it I stumbled onto the better idea of a caricature artist. My only experience was at amusement parks where I watched the artists work but never took the time or money to have one drawn. I found Emily Anthony on the net and corrosponded through E-mail. She was Awesome at the party! People who did not know each other began to talk and laugh among themselves. Watching her work and seeing the reactions from the people she drew when done was so much fun! It turned out to be a much better choice than a photobooth at less than half the price!

Emily is truly a gifted artist...and a must-have for your next party/get together! Our daughter's 11th birthday party was an even bigger hit because of the fun created from Emily's amazing caricatures. Right before our eyes, the girls' interests, personalities, and energy came to life on each & every page! Having Emily here was truly a form of entertainment...even for all of the parents who were watching her masterpieces take shape. What a great activity & memorable party favor! We can't wait to have Emily come back for another party!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rate of $150/hr, 2-hour minimum, is the same for all clients. I believe this is more fair than offering discounts and deals to some and not others, for the same service.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After determining my availability for your date, and getting your party information, I email you a contract which you can sign online; then an invoice for a 1/3 nonrefundable deposit to hold that date, which is also payable online. Then we're good to go!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm mostly self-taught, which means my training is from experience and learning from other artists. I attend the annual ISCS convention (the International Society of Caricature Artists) where hundreds of caricaturists from all over the globe converge for a week of seminars, competitions, and friendship. In 2012, I won 2nd place Best Studio Caricature. In 2016, I won 3rd place Outstanding 3D technique.
