A warm welcome from Kevin and Jill Rye, owners of Rye Smile Caricatures.


Rye Smile Caricatures are Kevin and Jill Rye, a husband and wife team. 

Kevin is a highly skilled top British caricature artist and Jill has a great way with people, manages queues and takes photos (with their consent) of guests with their caricatures.

We are based in Seaton, East Devon.  

Caricature entertainment guarantees laughter - with big smiles, big teeth, big noses and then there are the drawings!

Kevin has over 30 years experience of entertaining people with his drawings. Mainly working in the South West of England (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset & Wiltshire) but Kevin and Jill are willing to travel to provide great fun entertainment drawing at Weddings, Parties or Corporate functions.  

Fun caricatures drawn from photographs are also great as presents; whether celebrating birthdays, anniversaries or as retirement gifts.   

Please contact us with your requirements and budget and we’ll provide you with a price.


Whether it is for a wedding, party, business awards event, team bonding, a company Christmas party, a charity fundraiser or other event Kevin's caricature illustrations will always get a great reaction and bring laughter to the table. 

Caricatures are also great and subtle way to lure people to your trade stand.  Each drawing takes 5 minutes (or less) and is a sure way to create a crowd of smiling onlookers.


My approach is to ensure that each caricature drawing is a quality product that will provide entertainment for those watching whilst resulting in a great illustration (and a laugh) for the person being drawn. I’m happy to have a flexible approach to my drawing and if the client or the sitter wants mild or extreme caricatures then I can and will oblige.
