My Gift



"Svetlana came to our house early enough to be all set up by the time the guests started arriving, and she worked tirelessly for over 3 hours, doing caracatures and a few face paintings for the children. The occasion was a baby shower and it was a large, rowdy, diverse crowd, probably hard to deal with in some ways, but Svetlana definitely rose to the occasion. The guests were thrilled with their pictures! We hung up a clothesline for them to display their caricatures and everyone had fun comparing them. It was a fun activity, and I would definitely hire Svetlana again! Thanks so much!" - Marianna G. Austin, TX


"We commissioned Svetlana to do a caricature for my dad's 80th birthday party and she more than delivered. We gave her ideas to choose from and she exceeded our wildest expectations. Her art was the highlight of the party and we ended up hanging it above the cake table as a focal point. Her talent is beyond amazing and she is so creative (like I said, we only gave her ideas), that it's scary! She is the best - and you will be happy and laughing and amazed!" - Gaye. S.  Cedar Park, TX



"Our practice had an employee appreciation party on a chart boat and we hired Svetlana as our caricature artist! From my initial email to day of the party, the experience was great. She answered all of my questions and was very professional. Our employees enjoyed the drawings and talked about how awesome Svetlana was. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need!" -  Howerton.E - Austin, TX



"Svetlana was hired to do caricatures during our son's recent wedding rehearsal dinner event in Marble Falls, Texas. From my initial contact with her until even after the event, Svetlana was always so friendly and helpful. She is a very talented and amazing artist. All of the guests at the event were impressed by her work, and our son and now daughter-in-law have a wonderful caricature drawn by Svetlana as another wonderful memory of their beautiful wedding rehearsal dinner. I would also add that Svetlana is extremely patient with children. My sister's granddaughter had an endless number of questions for her throughout the event yet Svetlana remained so sweet and patient with her. 
My experience with Svetlana was seamless. I would definitely hire her again for an event and highly recommend her to anyone in need of an excellent caricature artist. After looking at her website and Facebook page, I would also recommend her artwork for purchase -- she's an exceptional artist and a wonderful individual. Thanks to Svetlana for making our son's and daughter-in-law's wedding rehearsal dinner even more special!' - Cindy G. Colleyville, TX
