Catherine started caricaturing professionally in 2004, and has since enjoyed drawing at Sea World, BMW Manufacturing, Clemson University, Furman University, Miss South Carolina Pageant, Greenville Drive stadium, and dozens of annual festivals in NC, SC, & GA.
Guests are always entertained and amazed as they watch Catherine capture the likeness of their friends and family in just a few minutes. Her caricatures are "fun and friendly" - they are exaggerated but still flattering, so guests are happy to show them off. Catherine's caricatures add a lively element to both formal and casual events, and are enjoyed by people of all ages. She looks forward to making your event both fun and memorable!
Ok...a sports analogy for an art session might be a messy mixing of the metaphors, but Catherine truly knocked it out of the park at our event! It's rare to find someone with the perfect blend of personality, intelligence, and talent - people usually are heavy in one and weak in another. Catherine brought them all - sharp witted, kind, and a super talented artist. She was enjoyed by children and adults alike. My highest recommendation!
Catherine, is so personable and fun, she made our company event a huge hit. Many thanks to her - she really is fantastic!
We have had great experiences with Catherine at our events. Her work is exceptional and she provides a great experience for our attendees. She's a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great caricature artist!
Catherine was great!!! This was a secret engagement and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to do our caricature and help with my special day! I highly recommend her for your event!
Thank you so much Cathrine for the Exceptional Job we all enjoyed your Friendliness and Professionalism Thank Thank Thank you We Love You
We had her at our wedding and she was awesome! Everyone loved her and she was great to work with!!
Catherine did an amazing job at our wedding. Admittedly my fiancé at the time of booking was on the fence about hiring a caricature artist. As my husband and I sat down for Catherine to do our cartoon, he revealed to me that he was so happy that we hired her. We both agreed that all of the guests loved it. Catherine was flexible enough to stay later at the reception. We are so happy with hiring Catherine. We would do it again!
Catherine put smiles on our guests ' faces on paper and in reality! Everyone walked away with a fun souvenir from our July 4th party. We were very pleased :)!
Catherine was great! She added so much fun and flavor to our event. Awesome! So glad she could participate.
Catherine was the hit of our 1 year olds birthday party. Adults and kids alike all enjoyed being drawn. Catherine was kind and personable as well as professional. We will be keeping her in mind for future events. Thanks again so much!!
We are an assisted living facility and had a fall festival for our residents, families and surrounding community. Catherine was great with all of the children and seniors. We will definitely book her again for future events.
Catherine did a nice job for our Festival.
Catherine did a fantastic job! My staff loved getting this. We placed Catherine in the lobby so I even had guest take part, which was great. Put the guest experience with us over the top. Catherine was very professional and would recommend her to anyone looking for this type of service.
Catherine was excellent and a huge hit!
Catherine drew for my daughter's first birthday party...very professional and a fantastic caricaturist! I plan to hire her again and I'd definitely recommend her to everyone I know!
Response from Caricatures By Catherine:
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review Koineiia! Your daughter's first birthday was a great party and I was happy to be a part of it. I look forward to seeing you and your family again, next time!
Catherine was a part of our wedding reception and many guests said it was their favorite part. We had food, photo-booth, bluegrass band and trolley rides...so it was stiff competition! She was great! Interactive, fun, created a great conversation with everyone showing off their drawings. We could not have been happier! Thanks so much Catherine!
We're an assisted living community and hired Catherine to come in and draw some of our residents. She was very patient with them and listened to anything they had to say. All of our residents were pleased with her drawings and we will definitely book her again.
Response from Caricatures By Catherine:
Thank you Misty for your kind words! I had a fun time drawing at Homewood - everyone was so nice and I genuinely enjoyed talking with the residents as I drew - and I look forward to the next time!

I have always studied art ever since I was small, and I am now happy to caricature professionally and also paint in my free time. I started drawing caricatures in Sea World in San Antonio, and after I moved to South Carolina I started growing my personal caricaturing business by drawing at outdoor festivals. Weddings, birthday parties, fundraisers, and other personal events soon followed and I've been busy ever since!
I draw my caricatures on 11 x 14 paper using Copic and Utrecht sketch pens. I can caricature in black-and-white (3-4 minutes/person) or color (approx. 5 minutes/person), and can draw cartoon bodies as well (adds another couple minutes per person).
I am punctual and professional but I am also friendly when caricaturing. If I'm asked to draw bodies during an event, I like to talk with each guest as I'm drawing them, and then draw the cartoon bodies to match their personality. I prefer to have three chairs provided at each event, but I can bring my own chairs if needed.
I recognize the importance of clear communication when planning and event, so when you work with me you can expect my full attention to the details of the event and my role in the festivities.
