We really enjoyed having Marietta Delene at our recent college event. She was very professional (arrived on time, communicated her needs, worked well with the students, adapted to COVID-19...) and her caricatures were wonderful. We would recommend her to others.
She was great! Friendly with the kids! The black and white drawings turned out wonderful for each kid!!!

What to Expect
Marietta comes fully prepared with an easel, paper, markers and a clear sign displaying what she does! Provide just two chairs and sufficient lighting and leave the rest to her. Her caricatures are goofy without being offensive, creating an enjoyable and memorable moment at your event. Watch her confidence command the marker with ease as she glides a caricature onto thick cardstock at lightning speed, guaranteed to dazzle your guests!
Marietta is a caricature artist from Kansas City, Missouri. She holds a bachelor’s in illustration summa cum laude with additional honors and has fifteen years of experience in creating art for people just like you! As a timid fifteen-year-old with aspiring hopes of drawing full time, she applied for a job as a caricature artist at a local theme park. That job saw her blossom into a career-oriented young adult who would eventually climb the corporate ladder. But that simply wasn’t enough! In February 2011, after seven years with Kaman’s Art Shoppes, Marietta left her job to freelance full time, giving her complete attention to those interested in a more direct connection with the work she produces.
While Marietta’s work prides likeness and accuracy, she’s also incredibly fast. Her quick wit with a marker creates a completed caricatured face on 11×17″ card stock in just two minutes and a half minutes! Because her professionalism, style and friendliness proceeds her, Marietta’s works have been sold to a worldwide audience, while local clients include the Kansas City Royals, PetCo, Price Chopper, Braden’s Hope and a multitude of universities and high schools in and around the Kansas City area. And that’s just to name a few! She also works with a variety of national, regional and local agencies, which allows her to draw across the country!
Marietta still resides in KC today, married to her high school sweetheart with three cats and a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix, all loving rescues. When not drawing, Marietta volunteers with local animal rescue organizations. She also leads a spiritual circle and volunteers her hobbyist photographer services for her religious community. Her favorite pastimes include retro gaming and thrift store shopping.
Additional Booking Notes
Marietta needs just two chairs and sufficient lighting to do her job. She takes care of everything else!
