Matt – Caricaturist and Digital Caricaturist | Durham | UK
Matt has established himself as one of the foremost caricaturists in the country. His drawings are of the highest quality, funny and sensitive to the demands of everyone he draws. With the ability to create digital caricatures, he can produce stunning colour pictures in around 10 minutes to great effect.
Matt is guaranteed to be a highlight at any function, be it a corporate event, private party or wedding. He is totally professional and his easy manner and humour suit every occasion. He mixes and blends in any company from high society and celebrity occasions to children’s parties – grateful customers include Ambassadors and two-year olds!
His work attracts everyone, with onlookers queuing for his drawings once they see the quality of the work. “The art of being a good caricaturist is in judging the personalities and their expectations as well as people’s features” he says, “I want guests to go home treasuring their drawings”.
At a recent event for Orange he drew 40 people in just 2 hours, with the queue refusing to shrink until the coaches prepared to leave. When the pressure is less intense Matt enjoys learning people’s hobbies and interests, incorporating these in the drawings so as to make the results even more personal.

“Matt, you are a fantastic ambassador for your profession and we have received wonderful comments about how charming you were, and how at ease all the guests felt. Everyone was absolutely delighted and just loved their pictures – many, I am sure, being framed as I write!”
“Matt’s sketches are real ice-breakers – a must for any client party. He’s charming but above all reliable – he even made it on time through floods causing three hour delays. Re-booked by very popular demand.”
– Lyons Waddell Ltd
“Matt has a gift for portraying guests imaginatively and with true likeness. He went down very well and continued to work late into the night, well past his provisional time, due to the demand.”
“I am just getting ready to go on our honeymoon, but I wanted to say thank you for all your help and request that you pass on my thanks to Jeff and Matt. They both did a fantastic job and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed having their caricatures completed. I would like a private commission by Matt of the group caricature in colour if possible, so would you mind asking him if this is something he would do once we get back from our honeymoon? Thank you again Abi, you have been an absolute star!”
