Caricature Services in Stamford CT

Judy has become busy and successful drawing distinct, flattering, live caricature entertainment for hire at corporate events, Bar Mitzvahs, birthdays, graduations, grand openings, fundraisers, weddings and just about any event or celebration you can imagine, large or small! She has drawn at events at Stamford High School, the Italian Center of Stamford, UCONN Stamford, the Loading Dock, Chelsea Piers and Stamford Marriott to name a few, and at private house parties and public events in Stamford and lower Fairfield counties. She also hires additional complementary caricaturists when more than one is needed and will subcontract trusted colleagues as needed if unavailable.

Live Drawings at Children’s or Adults Parties & Events

Judy draws both children and adults alike at mixed parties, or can draw exclusively at adult OR children gatherings. She truly captures her subjects in a flattering and what she likes to call “non-theme park” style. You will not be insulted and will actually recognize yourself! Many times, adults still get a chuckle at seeing a drawing of themselves. Many have told Judy that she draws them better than they look, vs. some caricaturists who portray many in an unflattering light. Judy will portray kids in a cute and youthful fashion, and even some toddlers will point at themselves and smile! She also offers pre-drawn hobby bodies (no heads) for themed, budget-conscious events with lots of kids, and just heads drawn that day. And if BW hobby poses are chosen, Judy suggests scanning original art, printing and creating a coloring page at home, for an at-home activity for the child.

Caricatures and Hand-Drawn Portraits for Gifts

Judy loves to draw themed full or half body gift-quality caricatures by commission, which generally include, heading, title or even talk bubble, several props and a background. Or they can be as simple as a headshot, but all rendered in a tighter-than-live fashion, with great detail. These truly are great custom gifts for a special occasion, or anytime for the person, couple or family who has everything!

In addition to custom gift-quality caricatures, Judy has always loved to draw people, and while a full-time graphic designer, created some occasional pastel and charcoal portraits for friends, relatives or colleagues. She offers very reasonably priced portraits of people or pets generally up to two per picture. These are generally order via email.

These can be mailed to greater Stamford, or Judy will meet clients halfway for delivery for a small added fee.

Portrait Artist in Stamford CT

The nice thing about hand-drawn portraits of people or pets, especially of pets, is the sentimental value they have, be it displayed during life, or posthumously. They become treasured mementos of loved ones, memorialized in a tangible way that often is not even seen with photos, now that digital technology has taken over and our phones or cloud accounts become our photo “albums”. Maybe grandma would love a work of art of her grandchild that can be displayed. These can be mailed to greater Stamford, or Judy will meet clients halfway for delivery for a small added fee.

Hand-Drawn People Portraits

How many of us get professional photos or even print our own photos for framing and display? As a rarity these days, why not consider an affordable custom, hand-created pastel, pencil or charcoal portrait of your family (up to four larger sizes), for you and your significant other or children? It would be a great gift for loved ones. These are available in three standard matted sizes, and created from one or more reference photos and finished art can be mailed to Stamford area. Judy also meets clients halfway for delivery for an added fee.

Hand-Drawn Animals/Pet Portraits — Dog & Cat Drawings

Judy loves animals and has thoroughly enjoyed drawing custom pastel portraits of one or more pets — dogs and cats especially. Drawn from supplied photos, headshot or full body, what more beautiful way to display (and or memorialize) your treasured fur baby than in a custom rendition, celebrating his/her life while a family member, or in memoriam after passing? Any commissions can be mailed to greater Stamford. Judy also meets clients halfway for delivery for a small added fee.

Judy also has drawn many pet caricatures live in her unique “accurate” style, and drew at the Bark in the Park Pet Expo at Latham Park in 2016.
