Silhouette Artist – Alison
Silhouette cutting from one of the few remaining silhouette artists in England, she has mastered this rare and timeless artform which evokes a tradition highly popular during the Victorian era
Using just scissors and paper Alison cuts out the subject's portrait in profile taking only a few minutes resulting in a most charming, detailed and highly accurate likeness.
Alison learned how to cut silhouette portraits from her grandmother, an established painter and silhouette artist herself for more than 50 years. Alison cut her first silhouette aged eight. She keenly observed her grandmother's expert technique and was encouraged to develop the skill by practising on friends and family. After gaining her Bachelor of Arts Degree in illustration Alison began to carve out a career as a freelance silhouette artist cutting at all kinds of events from weddings, anniversaries and birthday parties to charity balls, trade fairs, festivals and corporate functions.
Silhouette art is a perfect way to make a special occasion memorable. Alison's silhouettes have been described as 'the icing on the cake' as they add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the celebration. Your guests will delight in having their silhouettes crafted. The effect is naturally flattering and enhances their best features.
Guests receive their portrait in a special card that can also be custom printed to include specific details of the event such as the names of the wedding couple, date and venue details to create a perfectly personalised memento to take home and frame.
