Charles Burns began cutting silhouettes nearly twenty years ago and today has a deserved reputation as the finest silhouette artist working in the country today.This eye catching and remarkably different kind of entertainment provides both an exquisite personal memento and alsdo a real buzz and taling point at any event.
For the un-initiated, silhouette cutting is an extraordinary miracle of hand-eye co-ordination that most people simply don't believe is possible; the silhouettist chooses a subject, takes a pair of scissors & some black paper, and cuts them out. From any angle and at any size. It takes about 90 seconds (if that) and yes, it does look like them. Those chosen (whether willing volunteers or press ganged by their friends) will receive a beautifully crafted cameo portrait of themselves, cut from black paper and professionally mounted onto a printed card.
