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
- 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.)
