In a world full of Photoshop and manipulation, it’s amazing to have a hand-created art. Each piece is created by hand. No printing. No mass-production.
You too can bring hand-created art home, for your own family or for the upcoming holidays, Christmas, festivities, Hanukah, or other festive celebration.
Amazing, isn’t it? No wonder our Colonial forefathers or Victorian ancestors found silhouettes perfect for capturing the personalities of their family members. An exceptional silhouette artist will look at your loved one to produce his or her personality — as well as charming features. The fascinating part is that these details are not captured by a camera or by tracing a shadow – instead, these minutia are created freehand with only scissors.
“Freehand” means that the artist looks at your loved one and cuts the portrait only with the scissors.
No shadows thrown. No cameras.
Most people don’t believe it before the snipping begins.
After the snips end, the sitter realizes that there were no shadows cast on the wall, no cameras came out, and the portrait was delightfully fast. The portrait was made entirely by hand – even in this 21st-century age of technology. “By hand” brings a literal human touch to portraits. It’s not a photo, it’s a work of art.
Your portrait made by Silhouettes By Hand will show the real person. In this age when silhouette artists are rare, distinctive silhouettes are even more notable. Nothing stylized; each Silhouettes By Hand portrait is different, unique, peerless.
What will look best as a silhouette?
- Children’s portraits

- Pet portraits – dogs, cats, horses, giraffes, any pet you might have whom you want to remember
You (and your loved ones) deserve a personality-filled portrait.
