Why book Caricatures by M C Sturman?

The definition of caricature is"exaggerated description". Party caricatures are meant to be fun and fast. They are not exact likeness as in a portrait. M C provides fun essences of your guests & is one of the fastest local artists.

A professional artist since 1984, M.C. specializes in quick-draw caricatures (1-3 minutes per face,head/shoulders/black/white). Color would take a bit longer

Awesome entertainment as well as lasting keepsakes of your event. All ages(newborns to 100+)M C has drawn well over 100,000 faces throughout the years. Most remarked on how well she captured both their likeness & personality.

Professionally trained. Her resume includes events throughout the USA

Caricaturist in Pittsburgh, PA
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.
