highlight of the party

We hired Marie for our kids' bar/bat mitzvah party and she was exceptional. The caricatures were great - Marie is very talented - and all of the guests had a keepsake to leave the party with. It was part of the entertainment as well since many guests watched over Marie's shoulder as she drew.
