4 out of 5 stars

The glasses were excellent and our groomsmen LOVED them. I give 4 stars only because of timing. I would recommend giving them a 'need date' that is actually a week or two earlier than you actually need them. I received them in the mail THE DAY of my rehearsal dinner, which was a little stressful... because I wasn't sure if they'd actually get to us in time. Thankfully they did (even if it was at the last minute)!

The glasses came out great and the groomsmen really liked them. The only problem I had was timely receipt. I needed them by 8/18 at the latest and didn't receive them until 8/19. While they were shipped at express no cost to me by the seller they weren't shipped until 8/16 which doesn't leave any room for error... Which is why happened here. I ordered them months ahead of time to ensure I had them for my Rehearsal dinner and didn't. Although the seller points out she has no control over the USPS I think there is some responsibility on part of the seller not to wait until the last minute to shop product. Although I love the product I would recommend setting an earlier than "need by" date.

About

Make Each Day Your Happily Ever After

Hello! :D

Thank you for visiting, it is my hope is that as you browse my art gallery, my creations bring some sunshine into your day :)

Here's a little bit about me. I am a professional artist and art studio business owner serving the wedding and special event industry and happy member of the International Society of Caricature Artists :D I have had my art published and featured in a wide variety of wedding sites including: The Knot, Kleinfelds, Bridal Guide Magazine, Bride and Groom Magazine, Rustic Wedding Chic, Wedding Wire, Emmaline Bride, Be Minked, Party Style Magazine and Brenda's Wedding Blog just to name a few. My artware has been sold in high end boutiques and my own website since 2000. I have also served as a children's book illustrator and character designer for the TV and Entertainment industry.

All commissioned items are designed and created in my art studio in Los Angeles. I also come from a long line of artists and craftsmen, my earliest memories are of my mother sewing clothes and crafting and my father working with wood and leather craft. My brother, also an artist, was a big influence in my childhood and his natural artistic ability was something I wanted to immulate.

{HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN AN ARTIST?}
From the time I was a child I loved climbing up my tree for my daily dose of observing, drawing and reading. :) It was my favorite hang out other than playing with friends. My love of art lead me to experiment with a variety of techniques: calligraphy, illustration, watercolor, oils, acrylics. I initially started with pencil, then moved to acrylic only stopping long enough to embrace photography while in college.

I then took a detour into the Corporate World and served as an Administrator and worked my way up to Project Manager. It was a wonderful time, I worked with a lot of great people, some of who knew of my love of art and some of who encouraged me to pursue my dream of being a full time artist. So, I kept the dream alive :)

Then, in 1999, I started to explore glass art after visiting a local church with some of the most beautiful and inspirational stained glass art I've seen. The expressions captured within the stained glass were magnificent.

{CARICATURE WINE GLASSES?}
What started as a love of artistic stained glass turned into learning the technique of painting on glass. And once I found the right mix, I started designing, practicing and painting.

I initially painted on all types of glass, from glassware to platters. I have always loved Caricature and have collected them of my own family. I love how the likeness of the caricature can really capture someone :) Then in EARLY 2000, I drew and painted my first caricature... of myself! And the idea of combining my love of stained glass and caricature came to life. I have been creating custom caricature wine glasses ever since! :)

{WHAT IS CARICATURE?}
What is Caricature? A Caricature is the ARTIST's interpretation of a portrait that exaggerates certain features yet captures the essence of a person in an easily identifiable visual likeness. And I have so much fun capturing these very appreciated subjects to paint on glass :) My caricatures are likable and fun, or like a repeat customer so lovingly put it, "Cari- CUTE- ture" with little to no "ick". Of course if you want more "ick" I can do that too! From "mild" to "wild" and everything in between :)

{WHAT'S YOUR SPECIALTY?}
I capture special moments and memories by personally working with each of my clients to create an art item that will be an heirloom for years to come. Whether it is a hand painted caricature art glass or engagement location signature platter or hand lettered wedding vows, each art piece will capture the essence of the event.

{WHY DO YOU DO IT?}
In 2011, I took a leap of faith and left my corporate career behind and began working full time on art commissions :D I truly enjoy working with each of my clients and it makes me happy to know my art spreads a little happiness into their special occasion or everyday living. It's like they say, "Do what you love, Love what you do!"

{WHAT AREAS/REGIONS DO YOU SERVE?}
I am so happy to say that I've served clients Nationwide in ALL 48 contiguous states and I've had the pleasure of serving clients in Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.

{DO YOU HAVE A PORTFOLIO OF WORK?}

Frequently asked questions

How Do I Place A Custom Order and how long does it take?

Please note, due to quality and demand, our Production Schedule books months in advance.

For updated schedule availability PLEASE REVIEW our "How To Order" Instructions found here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109672089/bridal-party-gifts-caricature-wine?ref=shop_home_feat

What is Caricature?

A Caricature is the ARTIST's interpretation of a person that exaggerates certain features yet captures the essence of a person in an easily identifiable visual likeness. The best caricatures come from the best photos which are Clear and In Focus. We CANNOT use grainy, out of focus, poor quality photos. Our caricatures are likable and fun exaggerations of the person we see in the photos you provide. They are not portraits.

Please note that any request to have a caricature REDRAWN from scratch will incur an additional full price fee as these caricatures are based on MY interpretation of photos you provide. The best clear and in focus photos garner the best caricatures.

Communication

We respond to our clients in a timely manner within 24-48 hours. Or the following Monday, if the email is received over the weekend.

Once an order has been placed and processed, communication occurs as follows:
