$50 - $75 per hour
I am a classically trained caricature artist who has worked at both Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington and at Disney World near Orlando, Florida. Currently I am working as a French Quarter Artist in Pirate's Ally, just around the corner from Jackson Square. My daily interaction with customers both young and old make me the perfect addition to any event. I understand that the experience of being drawn by an interesting artist is almost as important as the finished product itself. I tell stories, sing songs and laugh at all jokes ... with th view in mind of making the drawing moment as fun as possible.

I use graphite on archival paper. The paper that I use is heavy enough to withstand a few layers of water color paint. While I prefer to work on an eleven by fourteen format, I will accommodate a client's request for a custom size, if I am given a few day notice. All finished work i put into a plastic sleeve. Mats may also be requested by the client, and appropriate sized plastic bags will be provided.

I am a fast woman, but still moral. I can draw a face only caricature in three to five minutes. Add another three to five minutes if a body and a gag is requested. I can put as many as four people on a single sheet of paper. Color adds an interesting dimension... but it does take longer.

Now, about me. I am old enough to know what I am doing. I was educated at the Kansas City Art Institute. I have a BFA degree. All art done by an artist is reflected in all subsequent work. In my studio I strive for accuracy and descriptive line work. I have profound respect for Matisse and Picasso (before he experimented with cubism). I also enjoy the minimalist zen of Japanese ink paintings. In my world, less is more.

As an added bonus and at no additional charge, a second caricature artist may be included upon request.

As regarding the discipline of good art, I try to do a few highly detailed paintings or drawings a month. This practice keeps my observational skills sharp.

As an aside, I spent most of my childhood in Venezuela, so I speak conversational Spanish rather well.

I hope to be the next addition to your event.

Tica was awesome. She arrived right on time and even stayed a little later than scheduled. Our guests loved her drawings and had a lasting memory to take home with them.
