  • How many caricatures can you draw in a three hour session?
    Typically Chris can draw between 30 – 40 caricatures in a three hour period.

    About 5 minutes each person and sometime even quicker if Chris is drawing three people on one sheet of paper, such as a family or team group.

    No the price quoted includes all the drawing work.

    Chris is the perfect entertainment for dinners and balls? She can mix and mingle around the tables drawing guests as she goes.  Chris will take a back seat during speakers and awards.

Thank you for your presence at our National Conference. It was great fun to see the guests laughing at one another as they waited to see the final outcome of each picture. Quick, efficient and friendly service. Thanks again - Liane Doherty 

Just to Thank You for your help, my enquiry was dealt with very swiftly, efficiently and very easily. You came back to me within 24 hours with a choice of two Caricaturists and we chose Chris The Caricaturist, she visited our home for our sons 21st party. There was a mix of age groups and we wanted something that would help the different age groups mingle a little bit. Chris did just that!! Everyone wanted a picture to take home, even the 21 year olds, it caused such a stir and lots of laughter as everyone wanted to see what the end result was, it was great fun. It’s now three days after the party and i am still receiving texts to thank us for such a great night and that having Chris there was a fantastic idea. I have passed your details onto lots of people already including the local cricket club. Thank you so much for helping us make the night such a success - Nicola

I asked Chris to work for me at a corporate event, she was fantastic and created a real focal point to attract potential clients to our stand! I could recommend Chris 100% and I have repeated booking with Chris and have always been really pleased with the excellent feedback and response to our events. She is a lovely approachable lady who I regard as more than a work associate - Bridgette Cowley (Trade Fair)
