Silhouettes by Lena Bengtson

Charleston, South Carolina | 4,074 Sales

Announcement    Creating a custom hand-cut silhouette is an opportunity for me to produce an accurate and detailed work of art. My degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in portraiture has helped to train my eye to capture the essentials in creating a silhouette that is an exact likeness as well as being pleasing to the eye. I use the European embellished style in which I add cuts that highlight the hair and clothing detail. It is my job, as a professional artist, to make sure that all my silhouette products will bring you joy for years to come.

From art teacher to professional silhouette artist.

Most of my silhouettes have been created from live sittings. My first experience as a professioanl silhouette artist started with the Macy's stores in Ohio in 1976. I have offered silhouette events in these stores for over 30 years.

I also offer personal sittings at wedding receptions, school fund-raisers and in children's shops and day care centers.
I do enjoy the immediacy of working directly with my customers. The silhouette sitting lasts about 5 minutes and the feedback over the years has been so positive that working with the public is such a pleasure.

With the tremdous growth of on-line shopping I have seen a great oppotunity to offer my silhouettes to a wider audience. It's very convenient for everyone. I actually enjoy working from photos, as much as from live sittings, because of the convenience. I may even find it a little easier, and I can allow more time for the details that can be challenging when working with the more wiggly subjects.

    My interest in portrait art led me to painting portraits for family and on commission. While teacheing art I found that I had a knack for cutting silhouettes, It wasn't long after that I started my career as a professional silhouette artist.
