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!May 19, 2014
We hired Emily for our daughter's Sweet 16 party on 1/25/14 and are so very happy we did. The weather forecast for that day was a little iffy with the threat of snow, so Emily made sure she hit the road in plenty of time to get to the party. That alone told us that she was very dedicated to her commitment. Emily drew for 3 hours and all of the kids absolutely loved their pictures. (many of them used their caricatures as their Facebook profile pictures) Emily is a very pleasant lady and an extremely talented artist. Class act all the way!Jan 29, 2014
Emily did drawings at my daughter's 13th birthday party. Everyone loved it. The guest ranged from baby to adult.Emily had drawn every guest. Everyone walked away with a great favor from the party.Jul 4, 2013
We had 40 people at our home for a family reunion, Emily's gifted drawings truly made the party an unbelievable success. She drew everyone there and some more than once in a short amount of time for reasonable $$. We will definitely ask her to attend our future parties and draw for our friends,she's amazing!May 29, 2013

- 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.
