Lauren Muney creates silhouette portraits that look like the sitter. They are not done in a stylized form – they are created in a true- to-life representation, although always flattering: silhouettes can’t show wrinkles!
There are just a handful of silhouette artists in the United States; each artist has his/her own style, and many artists are stylized. Silhouettes By Hand makes every effort to create an authentic, personality-filled representation that shows the actual features of the sitter. Customers have been able to pick out their favorite features, or even tell the difference between twins – just from their silhouette portraits.
As Lauren’s style has progressed, she has developed two styles:
- a modern style, perfect for people looking for a modern, flattering portrait (the portrait ends at the base of throat)
- a historical style, for those looking for the stylings of portraits from the 18th and 19th centuries (the portrait can include the top of the bosom or chest)
Events can amaze their own guests their special event or facility. Silhouettes are faster and more elegant than caricatures, and the guest takes home a beautiful reminder of his/her special day. Contact Lauren with your event ideas to get an information sheet, and arrange for custom quote for your event.
