Testimonials from clients

During my 20 years of drawing at various events in Sydney, I have received hundreds of testimonials.  Unfortunately, it is not possible to publish all of them here, so here are what some of my clients say!

I’ve divided testimonials based on 4 types of events: Live Caricatures at High-End Functions, Tradeshows & Conferences, Weddings and Studio-Drawn Photo Caricatures.
