Caricatures are a fun party entertainment option.
Leslie can do traditional Caricatures for a cartoon likeness of your guests (typically drawn using pen on paper in under 10 minutes each) for your guests to take home.
Scroll down for more examples of her Caricatures drawn during Events.
Upscale to High Fashion Caricatures for elegant parties, fashion shows or weddings instead of the traditional cartoon caricatures you've seen at street fairs.
Although still done very quickly, for an elegant option, Leslie offers these "High Fashion" Caricatures using watercolors changing the traditional goofy caricatures into lovely works of art focusing on your guests beauty and sophistication. Occassionally she may add details using colored pencils, ink or other materials to still achieve a likeness of your guests. They become the high fashion model in their "Red Carpet" attire and they'll walk away with a frameable work of art.
Sometimes artists are hired to paint a significant scene at a Wedding during the ceremony or reception while guests watch. It is entertainment for the guests and then the couple receives the work of art as a cherished keepsake. If you would like Leslie to do something similar at your wedding or other event, contact her.
She can work in oil, acrylic, pen & inc, or watercolor.
Leslie charges an hourly rate for carticatures ... usually $100 per hour for local events depending on circumstances. For out of the area events, call for a quote, 775-303-5844.
Leslie was trained in Cartoon Caricatures by the World Renown artist Pashur who's body painting work you might have seen on the televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The High Fashion twist to caricatures is entirely her own idea.
