About

Chris’s caricature style is kind but humorous so guaranteed not to offend. Ladies particularly love the long eyelashes and narrow waistlines! He draws black and white outline sketches on A4 at the rate of about 15 caricatures per hour. Chris normally works as a stroll about artist but can work seated at an easel depending on the situation. His caricatures go down brilliantly at weddings.

Extra Info

For larger parties Chris works as a roving artist with an A4 pad, drawing quick caricatures in ink (and without the aid of an eraser!) at the rate of about 15 portraits per hour. For weddings or a dinner dance it works well if he starts drawing at drinks reception and continue round the tables through the meal which usually takes about 3 hours.

For the smaller intimate party, full colour portraits might be more appropriate. Chris draws these on A3 sat at an easel at the rate of 5 per hour. Please be aware that reasonable lighting to do this kind of work is required.

If you want a pianist – Chris can do that as well! At weddings for instance, Chris can play piano for a civil ceremony, draw caricatures during the drinks reception and finish off with piano through the wedding breakfast, so you get two kinds of entertainer in one!

Testimonials

Richard Hawthorn | Wedding | Cumbria

Chris was subtle in his presence, but very friendly when engaging with our guests. We couldn't have been happier with Chris on the day. Pictures were great and quick (good for kids!) and he stayed over to make sure everyone got a picture! Thanks.

Lyndsey Sinclair | Wedding | Lancashire

Absolutely amazing, we and our guests loved Chris! He was so friendly and made everyone at ease. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for any occasion!

Leoni Bisset | Wedding | Cumbria

We were absolutely thrilled with Chris and all our guests loved having something special to take away with them! Our only regret is that we didn't book Chris for longer! Everyone in the room was queuing up for theirs done! Chris by far surpassed expectations. I was also extremely happy with your service prior to the wedding and any queries were responded to quickly. Me and Chris would like to thank yourself and Chris for helping to make our day very special!

Sue Annetts - Deloitte | Corporate | Cheshire

Chris turned up in plenty of time for the event and worked his way through the queue of people, solidly for the three hour booking! His drawings were fabulous (I'm sorry I didn't have time to sit to have mine done!!) He was friendly and chatty - nothing was too much trouble, he just set up and got on with the job. We would definitely book him again. I have also had a couple of other people asking for his number so I will pass your information on. I hope he enjoyed the day too!?

Paul Clays | Wedding | Dumfries and Galloway

Chris M was absolutely fabulous, a great caricaturist and a smashing bloke. In the 3 hrs we had him, every single one of our guests had a caricature done. Chris was surrounded all night as it was fascinating to see how good and how quickly he did them. A massive thank you for sorting us out at such short notice and making our wedding day one we'll never forget.
