"Mike has such a lovely manner that he immediately put my son at ease. My child loved having Mike draw a caricature of him and his dad and I were pleased with the charming results."

Excellent experience! We love the caricature you did for Noah, Luc and Amelie. Would love to have you for one of the kids birthday parties!

About the Artist
I am a New York City based artist, and I've been drawing caricatures for many years. Besides getting a good likeness, I think it is important to make my customers feel comfortable, and make sure they have fun. I certainly do!
Besides having fun at the event, they also have a nice keepsake to take home. I've had people come up to me years later and say that their child's caricature is still up on the wall or fridge.
I do mostly children's birthday parties, but I also do adult events like weddings, plus corporate events. I love it all!

"Mike worked tirelessly at our community Harvest Festival, drawing child after child. But even toward the end of the day, he greeted my 8 year old daughter with a big smile and welcoming manner, putting her immediately at ease. He looked carefully and drew quickly, infusing the details with a playful charm. The final product will make a delightful memento of the event and her childhood. Thanks for your artistic generosity, Mike!"

"It was amazing to see how quickly Mike was able to capture likenesses of a rambunctious group of children at a party at our local library. He has a very pleasant, calm manner that young children respond well to"
