I ordered 3 silhouettes, one of my daughter and one each of my two nieces for the Grandmas for Christmas. We wanted the girls to all be around the same age in the silhouettes, so Kathryn had to work with a less than ideal profile image of my oldest niece, who is four. She did a wonderful job!! They are so perfect and they came very quickly. I underestimated how difficult it would be to find oval frames.. so, I’ve since also ordered those from her as well.

I could not be more pleased with the portraits Kathryn created for me. My order was rather complicated but she worked to find the frames I wanted and when the photos I sent were not quite right, she contacted me for a few more to make them perfect. The finished products are a great representation of our 3 granddaughters and will be wonderful Christmas gifts. The turn around time was incredible. I ordered last Saturday and they arrived one week later. I highly recommend her as an artist and a vendor.
