Eric Melton, Artist

Hi, I’m caricaturist Eric Melton. I provide fun and memorable caricatures for your special event, party, wedding reception, trade show, or corporate function in Charlotte and parts of North and South Carolina. I serve most major cities including Raleigh, Durham, Asheville, Columbia, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and everything in between.  With 30+ years experience in the business, I strive for caricatures that are funny but not cruel or demeaning, sure to leave your guest with a great memento of the event. I will engage with your clients and make them feel comfortable and relaxed.  And as an added bonus, I carry liability insurance for that extra peace of mind against the unforeseen.

You can email me photos too. I also do studio commissions from photos for those retirement parties, birthdays, Christmas Cards, and much more.

Did I mention I absolutely love animals?

Pet Caricatures and Pet Portraits in pencil and oil are available.
