Emily's hourly rate for events is $150, with a two-hour minimum.

This rate is competitive with other highly-skilled professional caricature/silhouette artists who are passionate about their craft. Your guests will receive a piece of original art that's undeniably "them". She keeps her hourly rate consistent for all  clients, so that everyone is treated fairly...meaning she does not do 'deals', give discounts, work per piece or in return for exposure. (If your event is a fundraiser for a charitable cause, her suggestion is that a corporate or private individual sponsor the cost of booking---then the caricatures or silhouettes become the best kind of marketing you can have---something folks hold on to and cherish. The generosity of the donor is noted on each caricature or silhouette.)

Emily is known for her extremely quick, amazingly spot-on likenesses (Caricatures: 12-15 faces per hour, Silhouettes: 20+ per hour) 
All drawings/silhouettes are personalized with name of event and date
All drawings/silhouettes come in a clear plastic bag
There may be a small travel fee or higher minimum time if more than 75 miles from Wilmington, DE
Additional hours can be added on at event if there is no event following
Black mats are available for $6 per mat (must be requested beforehand)
