A few of her 145 great reviews:
Darci arrived early and was very professional. With her thorough explanation of what she provides and what sets her apart from everyone else is why we went with her. Everyone was so happy with their caricatures and happy with her as a person in general. Great conversation and positive attitude towards all guests and was willing to accommodate each person's requests. We would definitely have her at another one of our events! -Joshua N, Alhambra, CA (gig ID# 3296983) 6/3/'18
