What our customers say about us

"Svetlana is the Coolest Event interaction that money can buy.  I had reached out to her with a weird request to theme up my SXSW party with caricatures in flower crowns.  The event was only two hours and the guest list was extensive, so she worked with me to find a good timeing to get as many people through her line as possible.  We ended up with 90% of the attendees carrying out caricatures at the end of the night!..."

Lucy H. - YELP Inc. Austin, TX



"I recently hired Svetlana to come and do caricatures and face painting at my birthday party.  She was professional, courteous, and absolutely was a key to the success of my party.  I had originally thought that the kids would love the face painting and everyone else might want caricatures.  But, I didn't believe that having an artist at my party would be a critical element to success. 

It turns out that the adults as well as the kids wanted to get their faces painted.  She did absolutely gorgeous work!  And I believe that without her, my various guests would not have gotten in to the party & had as much fun as they did (it was a costume party event)!  She allowed people to discuss what they'd like - so you aren't limited to just a few designs.  She's truly an artist and her work is art!!  You will not be dissapointed in Svetlana's work or her kind and professional demeanor!  I will certainly recommend her work to anyone I know who is interested!  And I would hire her again without question!"

Riza C. Austin, TX.



"If you want a truly unique and FUN experience for guests at your next gathering, hire Svetlana!  Her talent and professionalism made our son's Napoleon Bonaparte themed birthday party really special!  The kids and parents were amazed and how she truly captured the littlest features that were spot on.  There were better than any favors and will last a long time - these are KEEPSAKE quality, original artworks of your guests.  She was lovely and engaged with our guests as she drew them - an unforgettable experience!  I can't wait to frame our caricatures, thank you, Svetlana!"

Waleska T, Austin, TX



"Svetlana under very short notice accepted to work one of our biggest events of the year at DILLARD'S Domain.  Her communication since the day we booked her was phenomenal.  She is very organized, prompt and professional.  Her son also provided balloon artistry and did fantastic... Santa hat balloons with beards, etc.  They were social with all of our guests and workmanship is outstanding.  She can draw a caricature in minutes just by looking at a picture!  Guests loved that she could also draw their pets.  I highly recommend her and her son and hope to book them again in the future!:

"Svetlana was so great to work with from beginning to end!  We booked her for our company holiday party last Saturday night and were very happy with her work!  She was very friendly, professional and did such a great job capturing personalities (her portfolio speaks for itself!).  We would definitely recommend her and hope to book her for another event soon!"

Rachel M. - 'Volusion', Austin, TX


"I hired Svetlana to draw caricatures at a recent real estate conference where my brokerage had a booth.  She set up quickly and offered color "head shots" for 4 hours.  She was an absolute hit!  Everybody really seemed intrigued by her talent and there was a line non-stop.  I was so impressed, I hope to hire her for a personal event soon."  

Kathryn M. Austin, TX



"Svetlana was so wonderful for our event this past week!  She was very accomodating to our needs (drawing on glass and not paper) and also did additional fun themed drawings with the day of the dead event we had happening.  To have an artist that is not only talented but also presentable and able to interact with our guests in a very fun way is irreplaceable! 

Would definitely refer her to others who are in need of hiring a caricature artist for their events."
Rebecca G. - 'Clarus', Austin, TX

"I rarely write reviews, but Svetlana is awesome!  We had another artist cancel on us at the last minute for our daughter's 5th birthday party and she was able to fill in with an hours notice!  The kids (and parents) LOVED her!  She painted over 15th kiddos faces beautifully in one hours time!"

"Svetlana visited our office to draw all 45 of our employees over the course of 2 days and we were amazed by her work.  She is incredibly personable and talented.  So much so, we invited her back to our Open House.  Such a hit with the kids and adults!  We can't wait to have an opportunity to invite her back!"

"Svetlana was great!  We hired her for a resident event to draw caricatures of resident pets.  It was a huge hit and our residents loved it!  Would definitely hire her again."

Sara H. - 'The Park on Broadie Lane',  Austin, TX



"Svetlana went above and beyond to help with my Surprise Proposal to my girlfriend!  She was very accomodating and followed my plan exactly, yet was flexible when needed.  I had Svetlana set up shop and appear to be there on her own for caricatures.  When we walked by, I asked my girlfriend if we could sit down for a caricature.  As planned, Svetlana drew me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend, and then when we were shown the drawing.  I also got on one knee and proposed.  She was completely surprised and said Yes!  The drawing itself was great too.  I'd highly recommend her." 
Zach F. Austin, TX.

Sam F. - 'HomeAway', Austin, TX.



"Svetlana is an incredible artist!  Our guests loved the caricatures she created.  The size of the caricature is perfect and everyone loved being able to watch them created on the monitor.  She was extremely professional, fun to talk to, and of course very talented!"

"Svetlana was awesome!  She came to our company party and was able to fit so many guests in our 2 hour window.  The caricatures were so well done and everyone loved having her at the event.  Definitely a great addition to any event/party!  I would absolutely recommend her.  Thanks, Svetlana!!"

Sierra M. - 'Ship Station', Austin, 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!"

"I am a teacher, and I hired Svetlana to do Christmas caricatures for my class, ages 5-11.  She is SOO TALENTED and her pictures turned out super cute!  The students and their parents all loved them!  She is also very friendly and put the kids at ease while she drew them.  It was a very fun event, and I highly recommend her!"

Rachel S.  Pflugerville, TX



"Svetlana was fantastic at our recent firm's anniversary dinnder!  Everyone truly enjoyed being able to take home a personanlized souvenir of the evening!  She was able to draw kids, pets, and adults in such a fun way that we were all impressed by her.  She is very professional, kind and an amazing artist!"

Michelle Z. - 'Reed, Claymon, Meeker & Hargett, PLLC', Austin, TX



"Highly recommend Svetlana!!!  My husband and I wanted to make sure our guests would enjoy a fun activity during our party.  Svetlana did a fantastic job drawing family and friends as caricatures.  Everyone had fun seeing themselves drawn up as cute and funny Holiday cartoon characters.  They especially liked that Svetlana could easily include their pets!  Several guests, including ourselves, requested their pets be drawn up from photo and she was able to complete in minutes.  Svetlana was able to draw everyone who request a drawing during the party.  She arrived prior to the event and was set up and ready to go before thee vent started.   Svetlana is very professional and super sweet.  We will definitely include Svetlana in our future events."

Sofia K. Kyle, 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 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!"
