Party Entertainment Caricaturist Petra
I draw quick, on-the-spot, friendly cartoon/ caricature portraits for events such as parties, dinners, street fairs, business functions, open days and wedding. While guests are talking I can draw individuals, couples or celebratory groups. I can draw 25-35 personalities in 2-3 hours.
I have worked at Wedding receptions at: Country Houses and Hotels, Restaurants, business premises, homes, village halls and at festivals in Hampshire, Somerset, Dorset and Wales.
NEW! VISUAL MINUTES...Visual Minutes are speed drawings and live illustrations for workshops, AGMs and conferences . They can help clarify and represent speakers' minutes. Please seethis page for some examples.
Petra is a professional entertainer deemed a great addition to events, who will keep a guest talking meanwhile she has drawn a simple wonderful celebratory group caricature.
I attended a Foundation in Art and a degree in Creative Arts. As a child I lived in France and watched people's animated faces when they spoke. I love to dance and grew to value mime and physical theatre as being visually suggestive with intrinsic meaning. I have developed my confidence over 20 years since my first job as a caricaturist, which was suggested by Theme-Traders whereby I sat alongside National newspaper Cartoonists, and then on the cobbles beside an entertaining ice-cream seller in Buckydoo Square, and at West Bay harbour before the rules changed, I've learnt more and more!
More recently, I have worked at a Care Home Family Bar-be-que, Glitter Ball for differently-abled adults, Poole school PROM, at charity events, christening, Young Farmers, democratic AGMs, family get-together's and children's parties, Wedding receptions and Birthday Parties, and for 2 years at the Olive Tree restaurant and a few events at a Garden Centre.
Petra's portraits are celebrating each person with an impression of unique expression.
