Your guests will be charmed and AMAZED when you invite caricature/silhouette artist Emily Byrne (formerly Emily Anthony; she got married!) to your party! It's so much fun to watch spot-on, yet light-hearted likenesses emerge from her pen or scissors, in only minutes per face. It's not just entertainment--it's also a party favor that your attendees will treasure forever!

CARICATURES: Emily has caricatured everyone from newborns to one-hundred-year-olds...and is proud of her many years of professional experience at all types of events, from casual to formal. She draws approximately 12-14 faces per hour in B&W, and 8-10 in color, using archival ink markers, smearless colored pencils and quality heavyweight paper. Each drawing gets its own plastic bag. As an award-winning gold member of the International Society of Caricature Artists, Emily is passionate about her craft. At events, her clients remark that they can plainly see how much she enjoys what she does for a living--putting smiles on faces, both literally and figuratively!

In addition to traditional live caricatures, Emily also creates Studio Digital Caricatures from client photos (think birthday, corporate, retirement, and holiday gifts, commercial caricature illustration, and sign-in boards for large parties--this is especially popular for weddings) which can be emailed to any location for printing. Caricatures make the perfect customized gift!

SILHOUETTES: Emily has recently mastered the amazing-to-watch skill of freehand silhouette cutting--no drawing is involved at all, she just looks at each subject and cuts an accurate profile in a minute or two! The delightful result then is pasted to a customized-for-your-event 5 x 7 card and placed in a clear plastic sleeve for your guests to take home and treasure. She can currently cut 20+ faces per hour.

For all events, there is a two-hour minimum. For further-away gigs, there may be a three-hour minimum. Emily also carries event liability insurance if your venue requires it.

Please check out Emily's feedback below from her fantastic Gigmasters clients--it speaks for itself :-)

Emily was fantastic, she drew caricatures at a corporate happy hour and truly added laughs and fun to the party. There are now her caricature drawings hanging all over the office making this event and memories last. I would book her again in a heartbeat!!

Emily is incredible! She is an talented artist and has a delightful personality. She was engaging, witty, sweet, kind and made everyone single person she was drawing smile. Her drawings were perfection and she was able to capture so much personality from each person in just a few minutes. We were so honored and elated to have her that we even hired her for a second day because she was such a hit! Emily is awesome!!!

Emily was a pleasure to work with. She is an amazing talent! The guests loved her bubbly personality and were thrilled with the caricatures of themselves. Emily added so much to the overall success of Danny's Bar Mitzvah. I highly recommend Caricatures by Emily and will most definitely be using her services again in the future!
