Creative entertainment can make any event a success, and my Four Minute Cartoon Portraits ensure that yours will live on with the take-home memento/drawing of your guests' favorite thing --- them. My extensive training in portraiture allows me to capture likeness and personality at lightning speeds, and I guarantee that your guests will thank YOU for hiring Me.
Entera was great to work with. She was very responsive throughout the booking process. Guests enjoyed the activity and she was highly professional. Would definitely recommend.
Response from Entéra - the Artist:
Thanks, Dina. I appreciate the feedback and hope you're okay with the upcoming storm. We've been informed we're under mandatory evacuation AGAIN. Jeez, I just finally finished doing the laundry that sat there before I was evacuated for the fire and then my daughter flew me to Houston for better air (highly ironic, isn't it?). Fingers crossed we can all continue again after this has passed. Happy New Year to you! Entera

What to Expect
First of all, Professionalism. Plus an art product/experience that will leave your guests with a great memento of the fun provided by their host. A high quality product all the way around and appreciated by clients from all walks of life.
I've studied art since receiving my first scholarship at age 12 and have continued my training since college, especially studying portraiture. However, my sense of humor and fascination with people has always pushed me towards cartooning, and my past experience working in an executive capacity with businesses such as Four Seasons Hotels allows me to interact with a wide variety of people in a professional, yet fun, environment. My cartoon portraits have been the hit at a myriad of events over the years and include many, many celebrities as well as regular folks celebrating a birthday. Once they sit in the chair, the labels disappear and they're all beautiful faces with smiles and personalities.
Additional Booking Notes
I have streamlined my operation over the years, and work at a portable easel with simple, elegant clamp-on lighting, all conveyed in a roller luggage type case. All I need from a client is a space to draw in that allows room for guests to line up and/or watch the drawings evolve, plus my easel and two lightweight chairs, with access to a light outlet. Simple yet effective.
