I have been creating silhouettes in the traditional freehand style for years. With an attentive eye and a pair of surgical scissors I will create your likeness in a matter of minutes.
People have been familiar with silhouette portraits for many years. The somewhat mysterious "Shadow Cut" became associated with a French Aristocrat from the mid 18th century named Etienne De Silhouette and enjoyed popularity through the early 19th century.
