The Manchester Silhouette Artist - Silhouette Artist
This Manchester Silhouette Artist is a retired Aircraft Design and Publications Engineer and began cutting silhouettes in 1984 when he was asked if he could provide silhouettes for an Edwardian fair. By the end of the day he was invited to do more at local school fairs and Folk Festivals.
Without drawing, using only a pair of scissors and black paper your head and shoulder portrait can be cut in about one minute. Using only hand and eye coordination an accurate profile can be cut out of paper.
Silhouette portraits became popular in Victorian times and although time has passed there are still a small band of people keeping this decorative and beautiful art alive.
He is one of only 6 practicing silhouette cutters in the UK and also collects old and unusual silhouette art.
He is also an accomplished watercolour painter who enjoys teaching these skills to others and manages to fill his lessons with a passion and enthusiasm for art that makes it a delight to learn.
If you would like something different for your wedding, party or corporate function, then why not have a wandering silhouette artist among your guests. Capture the evening with portraits of all your friends and family in this unique way.
Make your wedding one to remember with this unique record of your special day. Keep a record of all your guests in this timeless art form.
He is also available for corporate functions, birthday parties or family gatherings where he will entertain your guests by cutting their silhouettes if they should wish. This record of your guests will then become yours, forever capturing your special event in this unusual way.
He is often accompanied by his lovely wife Liz who acts as helper and organiser as he works. Together they make a great team.
