Veronica Darcy, Birthday Gift

Have got 4 separate caricatures from Carmel & each one is unique & special. Carmel is gifted at picking up the characteristics of the person or people she is drawing and she is also great at interpreting the story that you wish to convey in your unique caricature. I’m planning my 5th caricature and I can’t wait to get started with Carmel’s guidance. 5 star service including spectacular picture quality, on time delivery & top quality frames. Highly recommend!

I am absolutely delighted with the caricature Carmel did for me. She got the likeness spot on and was a pleasure to work with, allowing me to add suggestions throughout the process. The caricature was beautifully framed and arrived well-packed and on time.
