Caricatures are a big success

By Patty O. on April 25, 2016

Alison did a great job with the Caricatures at our party. This was a perfect fit for the party and a really big hit. It was an adult birthday party, so I wasn't sure how it would go over and to my surprise it was a huge success.

Just Incredible

By Lynne F. on December 18, 2011

Allison is a perfect entertainer. She was punctual, professional, friendly and TALENTED!

She provided our family caricatures for Christmas gifts and while the experience was FUN, the caricatures were amazing! I just ket her do her thing, since she was the artist and the work was superb!

She managed to catch the true essence of each of my kids somehow in their portraits and the final caricatures were funny, realistic, colorful works of art! They are hanging on my wall and will adorn the walls of my family this year.

She truly is fantastic!

Booking Info

  • Fee: $100 - $190 per hour


Alison is easy-going and happy to be with people of all ages. She usually arrives 15 - 30 minutes before the scheduled Entertainment time ~ so she can set up for the maximum benefit to your Party. She's been working as a Party Artist for over 10 Years, so she has a pretty good handle on what will work best for your Party.

It's usually best if you choose to set up the Art Entertainment in a prominent place in the Party Room. Because it's just as Entertaining to watch the Artwork be created as to Experience the finished Products. Guests are frequently quite Surprised and Delighted when they see the Unique Artwork that Alison can make at Your Event.

Plastic bags are provided for Caricatures Or Fashion-Sketches ~ so they can get home safely as well as being seen throughout the Party. And of course Face- Painting Or Balloons Or Freehand-Glitter-Tattoos are seen throughout the Party too. It will sure look like a Party is going on if you have Professional Party Art.

People enjoy seeing each other as the Artist sees them. Special Fun.

When the time is over for the Entertainment, Alison clears away her supplies, repositions chairs if needed.......

And the Artwork is taken home by your Guests ~ Prompting them to recall Your Special Celebrations. The good times.
