My name is Erica Missey. I am a full-time caricaturist and illustrator, based in San Antonio, Texas, providing professional work since 1994.

I can entertain your guests with caricatures (cartoon versions of yourself) and face painting at many kinds of parties and events, from black tie occasions to backyard barbeques to birthday bashes for all ages. I also do live event painting.

For additional entertainment options, I can also provide balloon artists, and other entertainers to make your event a memorable one.

I also illustrate children's books, do commission artwork, and paint. I'm also a full-time musician and music teacher.

Thank you for visiting my website and I hope I can help you with your artistic needs :).
