What is a Caricature? • My Background
W h a t i s
a C a r i c a t u r e ?
A caricature is best described as an exaggerated description.
Sources vary as to the origins of the caricature, but it has
surfaced in various eras, used both for political satire and as entertainment.
From black-tie banquets to back-yard barbecues, caricatures
can offer humorous entertainment and lasting keepsakes.
M y B a c k g r o u n d
An Art Institute of Pittsburgh graduate, former corporate graphic
illustrator and caricaturist since 1984, I specialize in quick-draw
caricatures (1-4 minutes per face). I am available for corporate,
private and school functions including parties, festivals, trade
shows, weddings and conventions. My availability includes both weekdays and
weekends, days and evenings.
Located in the Pittsburgh area, I also perform the art of
caricature in Las Vegas several times a year and will consider major
events in other areas as well. My memberships include the National Caricaturist
Network, the Pittsburgh Society of Artists and the Greater Pittsburgh
Visitors and Convention Bureau.
What satisfies me most about caricature art is seeing the smiling
faces of my subjects when they see my finished work. Or when repeat customers
return with their families year after year. And when they tell me they
have my work framed and hanging in their homes and receive many compliments
