Barrie James Art is a wedding service based out of Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, in North East England, specialising in caricature drawings. Live caricatures are a fantastic way to entertain your guests at a wedding or party whether as an icebreaker during an afternoon drinks reception or as a hilarious addition to an evening event. Lead artist Barrie is one of the top caricaturists in the United Kingdom and the overall winner of the prestigious Caricon International Caricature Convention 2018.
Barrie James Art is dedicated to providing guests with an unforgettable experience. Barrie focuses strongly on the entertainment value by mingling and chatting with your guests while drawing them. He is able to produce one high-quality caricature every three minutes that many clients keep forever as a souvenir of their day. Unlike many other caricaturists who work from a fixed easel, this method prevents queues from forming and Barrie is able to entertain large groups in a short period of time. As a full-time professional caricaturist, he can be relied upon to provide an outstanding service.
I have a range of packages from two hour mix and mingle entertainment for your drinks reception or after meal lull to full day packages where i am drawing a large portrait of the full wedding party
Yes, I mainly cover the Northumberland, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. But will travel further afield
