“Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you for sorting out the entertainment for last night’s event. Just a little feedback…Luisa was fantastic – the caricatures went down a storm and were very popular. She did a fantastic job and started earlier due to early arrivals and stayed late. It was really appreciated as clients were queuing up. All attending were end client/event organisers and I cannot see her not being booked by someone for their events – a few guests commented that they hadn’t seen this done digitally before and thought it was a great idea! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or book either of them again for one of our events.

“Was going to send you a note about how great Luisa was! Everyone was amazed by her portraits and it was so fantastic to be able to show them all on the big screen. The children were amazed and really laughing about their friends being drawn, so it was a fantastic day and Luisa worked really hard with only a short break. We’re already thinking about how we could get her back here for another project…”
