    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!

About this pro

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 you 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 events...like 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.

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I attend the annual convention of 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.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      Birthday parties, wedding receptions, post-proms, corporate events, bar/bat mitzvahs, trade shows, company picnics, class reunions, fairs, fundraisers, college events, holiday parties, you name it, I've done it. Part of the fun for me is doing so many different kinds of celebrations. Some clients hire me every year for their special days.
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      When you are looking for a live caricaturist online, the most important qualities to look for in are: Can they get a good likeness? Are the drawings funny? (Look for samples with subjects done at parties) Can they draw quickly? Are they personable in general? Are they professional, on time, with everything needed to draw? (Check their client feedback.)
