I normally charge from £210 for 2 hours performing, and an additional £60 each extra hour thereafter. I am willing to travel to events around the UK - cost negotiable. Enquire for further details on how I could meet your party or wedding event requirements.
I have over 10 years experience of drawing humorous caricatures at corporate events, birthday parties and weddings. I can work in a 'mix and mingle' way and also sitting with individuals in a quieter space, if they prefer. Average 15-20 guests can be drawn per hour. Bookings can be made for a minimum of 2 hours, till as long as needed. I like to connect with my subjects and make them feel at ease. I am never cruel with my depictions of people, just accentuate certain features to bring out the unique person they are always appreciated and great entertainment value for both the and their friends/family. I have a range of different wedding caricature packages to suit your needs. Enquire for more info.

He drew a characterture of myself and Dan prior to the wedding in order for our guests to sign which was a really nice touch and a good keepsake.. everyone agreed he was a good addition to the wedding evening and would definitely recommend him
Thanks Donna and Dan"

approx 15 mins if setting up an easel area. 10-15 min on average.
How long is the act?
I usually work a minimum of 2 hours, though can work up to half day or longer if required (with breaks!)
Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?
I bring all necessary materials with me ( apart from chairs). I am quite flexible about where I work, and can usually adapt to the surroundings and lighting. I can offer a more personal seated set-up with an easel, with folks who may prefer this; this can be a good alternative set up for drawing couples or a group of people.
What other services to you provide?
A pre-drawn caricature of Bride&Groom prior to the wedding day; this can be done by photos or digital images via email. The caricature on A3 size paper can also be mounted and guest sign the mount with comments -adding extra memento of the big day. This provision is available at 40% discount on normal charge, if the artist is commissioned to perform for a caricature wedding session.
The pre- drawn or painted caricature can also be digitally reproduced and applied for a great image to use on invite or Thank you cards.
