I bought this as a gift for my sister in law and she loved it! I really was tempted to keep it for myself. (: Thanks for such a unique and beautiful necklace!

This is the 3rd silhouette I've bought from Jenny, and even 4 years later Jenny was able to create a matching one for my 3rd (and last!) child. Thank you!

Jenny is super helpful and upbeat as she walks you through getting one of her amazing pieces of art! Sure to be an heirloom. Definitely a gift treasured in our family. Thank you!
fine paper arts
I started cutting silhouette portraits on a dare in 2007. Since then, I've cut hundreds and hundreds of portraits of people of all ages in the traditional freehand and contemporary methods. I'm a life-long maker and an avid researcher. Much of my art grows from family life and the natural world where I live in New York's Hudson River Valley.
My traditional freehand portraits are drawn directly into paper with scissors with the same technique used by many early American itinerant silhouette artists. The only difference is that your image is seated on my laptop, rather than a chair in front of me.
All of the work in my shop is of my own original design and most of my paper cuttings are editions of one-- expertly and delicately hand-cut from a single piece of heirloom-quality paper and mounted with archival adhesive on cotton museum board.
My work has been shared via Taproot Magazine, Garden Design, Design Sponge, Martha Stewart Living, House Beautiful, Better Homes and Gardens, Men's Health, Hudson Valley Almanac, and other print and online venues. It can also be spotted on the Hudson Valley Seed Library’s fabulous Art Packs (Variegated Nasturtium, Marigold Medley, and Ragged Jack Kale) and in various galleries throughout the country. I was an artist in residence for the opening of the Walkway Over the Hudson and was awarded the Spring Creek Project’s Collaborative Retreat at Shotpouch Creek in Oregon.
