"Silhouette Artist Extraordinaire"
|The Gentle Art of Silhouette. I have
been cutting silhouettes, free hand, since 1958 in several states, in
leading dept. stores such as Marshall Fields, Carson Pirie Scott,
Herbergers, Field Schlick and Hauglands Kids. You can call the studio
for our current schedule, to make an appointment or order by mail.
Artists are rare nowadays and good ones are rarer still. Only a handful
can capture a true likeness using only scissors and paper.
I have the subject pose while they watch video tapes. I can also cut silhouettes from a clear profile photo. Pose them against a plain background, up close, showing head and shoulders with no grinning of the mouth.
Each silhouette posess a special charm of a time long ago, before there were cameras. It is important to posess original art and keep them for future generations. I am known for accuracy and interior detail known as European embelished style. The scale of each silhouette is 3.5" tall and will fit 5 x 7 frames.
I thank God for my special gift and my husband's encouragement to persue the demand for this lost art. I know your silhouettes will become treasured keepsakes and priceless heirlooms.
