HELLO potential client! I'M DIANE, a DISNEYLAND trained caricature artist with 33 YEARS of experience all over Southern California and beyond! I am super fast (3 to 4 mins) and accurate in the detailed Disneyland style. I can handle events both big and small, from a handful of friends and family to corporate events with thousands of guests! (I would subcontract my other artists to come with me) I am available for CONVENTIONS; CORPORATE , BIRTHDAY, AND CHRISTMAS parties as well as WEDDINGS, PICNICS, PROMS, and BAR or BAT MITZVAHS, ANY other kind of event you can dream up I'll draw at it! I've drawn at HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of gigs over the years!! And I would LOVE to add you to my long, impressive list of clients!

I was trained in RECORD time by the Official CARICATURE ARTIST OF DISNEYLAND, LAVONA THOMAS KING. I've met and drawn ROY DISNEY JR. (!!!) AS WELL AS MANY OF THE DISNEY ANIMATORS at their annual meetings in BOTH ANAHEIM and at the FAMOUS STUDIO. As I drew him, one of the animators said that he'd absolutely LOVE to trade jobs with me! I told him the same thing! Obviously, my main influence is DISNEY but I also owe so much to my formally trained portrait/landscape artist mother.

SPEED: Aprox. 4-5 minutes full body with NAME (one person)! 3 minute face and torso with NAME (one person)! But there are lots of variables to consider...

MY GALLERY consists of 1.) A QUICK SAMPLING OF MY WORK
2.) PARTY CARICATURES ALL DONE WITHIN THE ABOVE TIME FRAME
3.) STUDIO CARICATURES, HAND DRAWN IN WATERCOLORS
4.) SAMPLES OF BACKGROUNDS
5.) ZOMBIE CARICATURE EXAMPLES

BTW, In the video with the 3 ladies at the store counter, "RICHARD" is the man who hired me to draw caricatures of all the employees. I think they thought he did the caricatures, LOL.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

My personal motto is "Do unto others". I am a "kind" artist but I can HIGHLY exaggerate if that is what your guest wants! My goal is to provide you and your guests with the EXCELLENCE you deserve. Unlike other San Diego county artists, I am totally comfortable drawing detailed bodies and themed caricatures at events. Each of my caricatures includes the guest's name and the year. And I have NO problem with drawing GROUPS at events. (up to 10).

I am professional, prompt, and courteous. I value my reputation AND I respect how much effort it takes to put an event together, I'm very flexible and responsible. In short, I strive to be the BEST caricature artist you have ever seen. But first you need to CHOOSE ME, DIANE, to be YOUR CARICATURE ARTIST!

Amazing! Of all the decisions I made about my wedding, Diane was the best (well besides choosing my husband of course!). We had a rustic wedding at a lodge on Palomar Mountain, she came all the way out on windy roads and stayed longer than expected to get everyone's caricature done! She is the one of the nicest people I have ever met and I am still hearing rave reviews from our guests about their take home wedding favor caricatures! She would be great for any sort of gathering. Guests lined up to admire her work and it got people talking to each other, broke down walls, and connected new families. You will feel like a genius for hiring her. Trust me!

Diane was so professional and such a delight to have at my husbands 30th birthday party. Every single one of my guests commented on how talented she was and on how much they loved the Caricatures of them that she created. She made our party so fun and entertaining! I would with out a doubt, recommend her services with the highest of regards to anyone. -Stephanie
