"Hey Shelly. My Mom picked up the caricature yesterday. It is absolutely perfect! You captured his look just right! He will be so excited. This will be a great momento of his 40th!Thanks and best of luck with your move."
"I was told by a mutual friend that my daughter was on your web site.
She is the little girl that you made a caricature of at the Blowing Rock Winterfest.
I wanted you to know that we have framed that picture and have enjoyed having it. You were able to capture my daughters image and personality perfectly. You are very talented and I wish you much success Shelly."
“We searched for a caricature artist that could create a fun, unique, and
realistic portrait of us to hang in our house as something different to have than what most people are used to seeing in homes. Many artist have their own way of
capturing an individual’s portrait. You can see this in how they draw jaw lines,
mouths, eyes, etc. which takes away from the individuals uniqueness and makes
them look similar to other people’s caricature portraits.
Shelly was the artist we chose to do our portraits because she can capture an accurate picture of the people she works with and can bring any type of
character to life that they would like it to have in the portrait. Compare her examples
to other artist examples and look at how much moredetailed she is. She will capture for you a snapshot that will be unique, real, and will last a
lifetime as a conversation piece.
I will have Shelly do future pieces for me in regards to my work and would
be happy to refer to her any person or company needing to commission an artist.”
