"You made me look better than I do" has been a phrase Judy has been told more than once. She has always loved to draw people in particular and has a keen eye for distinct features enabling her to capture a true resemblance to her subjects, in a fun manner with slight, if any exaggeration, decidedly different from over-exaggeration or "cookie cutter style" that may be very grossly unflattering or nonsensical!

In 2009, she was recommended by an agent and solely featured on a half hour CT cable access show spotlighting caricature art, where she discussed and demonstrated her art (see the video link here). This was a great experience, rivaling the portrait cookie decorating contest she was selected to complete in with a handful of other portrait artists, for Food Network's "Ham on the Street" taped in Norwalk, in the early 2000s, in which she was a winner (certainly not due to her frosting)!

A full-time graphic designer for years, Judy did some "side" portraits and caricatures, mostly for friends and family over the years, and now is a professional award-winning caricaturist, having drawn them regularly since 2003. She can draw full body poses in hobby/theme or head shots, in color or black and white, for all kinds of events, from small private family gatherings to weddings/large corporate functions to some vendor sales events. A social person, she engages her customers whenever possible to create a relaxed, fun atmosphere! She is very energized entertaining an enthusiastic and fun group. With Judy, you will have a great experience and a great take-home "favor" to keep for years, not just a day or a week like other things I won't mention here ??.

Minimum booking time-frames (2 hours) apply and increase with distance from home base, or at her discretion, price will be adjusted upward and travels fees applied to compensate for a reduced time-frame. Despite her policies, she tries to be flexible and will modify bids or time-frames depending on the circumstances. Check out her specials and package options, especially for larger events, and ask about custom drawing paper with caption and border, theme or corporate art added and copied if desired, or perhaps a custom sign-in board! Some of these add-ons will be additional to a quote, handled offline.

Finally, as of 2016, she carries liability insurance for those of you who may require it, or appreciate the security. She hopes to draw you and your guests soon!

Judy is a highly talented caricaturist who added a most special and memorable touch to my 11-year-old daughter's party. She arrived promptly and began drawing head shots immediately. Judy has such a sweet personality and was very friendly to all of my guests. I believe she captured the likenesses of faces better than any caricaturist I've ever seen. My younger guests were enthralled by her work and ecstatic to be able to take their pictures home. Judy was a memorable highlight of the party. I am so happy that she was available to perform at my event and I would be extremely eager to hire her again!

Judy was awesome with all of the kids at my daughter's 16th birthday party! She took the time to get to know the kids while she was drawing and they thought she was super! Her caricatures were spot on and all the kids were so excited to share theirs with each other. Thanks, Judy, for making my daughter's 16th birthday so special!

Judy did a fantastic job at my son's christening! She did caricatures of the children and kept them entertained through most of the reception. I would definitely recommend her and will keep her in mind for another event! Thank you Judy!!
