In the tradition of many early American silhouette artists, my silhouettes are cut freehand-- no shadows, no tracing, no Photoshop-- just a keen eye and terribly sharp little scissors.

How it works:
You send me an image or two taken in profile against a neutral background from about 4 feet away. Be sure to include head and shoulders with mouth closed in a natural position. I cut your portrait from lovely matte French black silhouette paper (or other color) and send you a proof. Once you are happy with the cutting, I mount it archivally on 5"x7" museum board. Then I pack it up snugly in a little envelope and mail it to you. Frame is not included.

For multiple copies, enlargements, or other special considerations, please drop me a note and we can talk about the details and pricing for your request. Files are kept for every portrait in case you'd like to order additional copies.

Custom silhouettes make wonderful special occasion gifts for Birthday, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Bridal Shower, Wedding, Bridal Shower, Anniversary, Christmas. Gift certificates available.
