Caricatures, cartoon sketches, and lots of smiles!
Over 10 years of experience, a lifetime of art love <3
She did a great job. Everyone loved their drawings
The artist arrived promptly and created the most amazing caricatures! Everyone raved about her work, both the adults and children. She even drew my family onto one sheet and provided color for the parents of the birthday girl. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I would Highly recommend HooyArt!
Thanks again for everything. You are amazing!!
Response from HooyArt:
Everyone at your party was so kind and lovely. Thank you!
Professional and great with my guests!
Our artist was friendly, very patient and creative with the teens. Will hire again ! She did an awesome job!
Response from HooyArt:
Thank you, it was a pleasure!
This was such a great idea for a birthday party. Not only did the kids want their drawings but many adults too. The drawings came out so good and extra attention was given to the birthday boy! This was a hit and I'm so happy I went with HooyArt! Definitely recommend her and will be using her again in the future!
