I draw caricature and do other forms of art at parties, corporate events, baby showers, weddings, and other events. My standard caricatures take around 2 -4.5 minutes per person and my quicker one takes 1.5 -2 minutes per person.
My silhouettes are hand cut without pre-drawing & famed in a beveled edge black mat board frame (see samples) & comes with a frosted gift bag. I do 2 at a time so the second one can be put in an album for the guest to sign.
Some events also have me do balloon art & face painting. I also carry entertainers insurance.
I always come early to set up and I am professional in how I dress & conduct myself. Contact me today! ☺
Darcy was very professional and polite. She showed up a little early which was great and was very accommodating with our attendees in creating their caricatures. she also was very upbeat and positive which made her very easily approachable and made for a more positive experience with her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a caricature artist at their events. also, her renditions of the attendees that she made drawings for were very good.
I employed Darci for a family party with 4 generations in attendance. Everyone loved her caricatures and excitedly took their drawings home. I particularly loved the silhouettes because they looked so much like everyone. She was so pleasant and quick...obviously I would employ her again without hesitation!

I have been doing cartoons, caricatures, and other forms of art since I was very young. I took private classes in elementary school and high school and later went to Long Beach State a obtained a degree in Art. In the 80's I realized how popular caricatures are for events and how they are a great memento to take home. This made me start my own art for entertainment business.
Here is some additional information for event planners and people wanting to hire me for my caricatures and silhouettes. Along with my standard speedy situation caricatures, or big head and small body caricatures that takes 2 to 4.5 minutes, I also do a quicker caricature, head & shoulders drawing, in half this time if you have a large event ( i.e. around 1.5 to 2 minutes per person). I can also do ultra quick prisma color caricatures and fast watercolor caricatures at no extra charge. Each picture is done on quality card stock art paper and put in a clear plastic bag/sleeve to display it. I also can pre-print information on the paper if needed.
Along with realizing how popular caricatures are I found out how popular silhouettes are for events like weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, Bat Mitzvahs, theme parties, and tea parties/luncheons.
With my silhouette, along with the beveled mat board frame, I also put them a white frosted gift bag. Also each silhouette comes with a paper on the back with the history of silhouette making. Your clients or guests will love watching the black silhouette paper be cut into the guest profile. I do not distort the faces and I believe you will love the attention to detail of your guests and clients. Hold up the silhouette to your guest profile and see the likeness. Glasses, bows, curly hair, the correct shaped noses, all these thing I notice and cut to make a beautiful silhouette memento to take home.
I hand cut out two silhouettes at a time so one can go home with the guests and the second one can go into an album for the guest of honor to take home. In this album, the guest can write something to you next to their silhouette for the guest of honor.
I can provide an additionally insured certificate for liability insurance, and can give you a W-9 if you need it.
Drawing caricature and other art entertainment is my full time business and I have built my business with many happy customers. I come early to set up and am professional in how I dress and conduct my self.
Let me know if you would like to book me for your event, I would love to create a unique memento for you guest to take home with them.
