Description

This custom silhouette portrait of a baby or child is a timeless, unique keepsake that looks elegant in any space and makes a wonderful gift for someone special in a child's life. Personalise your portrait further by adding a handwritten dedication at the bottom, for example a child's name or birth date.

Each portrait is sketched from photographs, hand cut from black paper, mounted on a background of high quality white textured 300gsm 100% cotton paper stock and hand signed in pencil. It is designed, cut with a scalpel and constructed completely by hand which gives a unique charm and quality, unlike the uniformity of a laser cut piece or digital art.

Please note that your portrait comes unframed. I create each portrait on a background of 12.5cm x 18cm (5" x 7") ready to drop into a standard size frame of your choice, but do let me know if you require a bespoke size (under 30cm x 22cm) and I will be happy to customize this for you free of charge.

Each picture is designed, cut with a scalpel and constructed by me, completely by hand, so no two pieces are exactly the same. This gives each one its own unique charm and quality, unlike the uniformity of a laser cut piece or digital art.

Please provide 3 or more good quality pictures in profile (side-on, taken at their eye level, not from above or below) of the child's head and shoulders, ideally without collars or clothing that obscures their chin or neck. Contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to send example photographs.

Additional copies make great gifts for grandparents, I offer any extra copies of your portrait at half price.
