One freehand custom silhouette portrait cut from heirloom-quality materials, mounted on a 5x7 inch museum board, signed and dated by the artist.

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 from the side 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 profile portrait from lovely matte French black silhouette paper and send you a proof. Once you are happy with the cutting, it's mounted and sent your way. 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 at $10 each for 5x7 inch mounts.

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