About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Master Silhouette Artist, Cindi Harwood Rose, is the world's fastest silhouette and finest silhouette artist. She can cut over 60 to 100 intricate detailed silhouettes per hour at events, free-hand without the use of a pen or pencil. Her likeness is unmatched, and her personality is magnetic. For weddings and other elegant affairs, Cindi can entertain guests while giving a lasting heirloom. Brides Magazine, Lady's Home Journal, Muscle & Fitness, Woman's World, Vogue, Texas Monthly, the New York Times, praised silhouette artist Cindi for fundraisers, weddings, and artistic paper profiles. Her detailing is unmatched, as well as her likeness's. The esteemed Peggy McClard antique Gallery recommends Cindi Rose work, it is collectible, no two silhouettes look alike, and they are valued forever. A second generation paper cutter, Rose has silhouetted for over 35 years, all over the world, and for more celebrities than any other living silhouette artist! Cindi H. Rose is an expert speaker on papercutting, silhouettes, and non-profits. Cindi has worked for Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman-Marcus, Macy's and Dillards, children's stores, school fund raisers and charity events. She has cut Silhouettes in France, England, South America, Greece, and all over the United States. Cindi does Silhouette commissions, and her work is in fine art galleries and museums. Rose also gives speeches on the history of silhouettes and paper cutting art from around the world, and the collection of antique, valued silhouettes. She uses archival antique, French paper to create her masterworks. Silhouettes by Cindi for Sensational Wedding: At this event, Cindi Rose makes two silhouettes, one for the bride and grooms's book, and one for the guest, making sure to put in all the details, including hair-styles, eye-lashes, ribbons, neck-ties, and veils. Cindi can easily do all the guests, in a 4 to 5 hour wedding booking. Cindi Rose, can also help design your wedding, incorporating your colors into a silhouette table cloth, and into silhouette cookies and pendants. She gives the bride and groom two lovely oval frames with their silhouettes facing one another, to place on the back of the chairs. If you want frames or mats for additonal wedding gifts, Cindi can organize that for you, too. Finding Silhouette Love Strings through GigMasters "Amazing, The Hit of the Party, the best entertainment ever" were the words used by Sue Anne McKinney to describe the unique talents of silhouette portrait master, Cindi Harwood Rose, who recently was found and hired from the talent spot, GigMasters, to do her unique artwork at her daughter's quaint vintage themed wedding. "Cindi Rose's work kept the guests staying until even after the bride and groom left," the mother-of-the bride stated. Even the wait staff claimed that they never have seen anyone as engaging. For fun, a clothesline was hung behind Cindi Harwood Rose, who took tiny clothespins and hung the silhouettes up for the guests to admire as she worked and later they took them with them. Cindi"s talents come from generations of artists. Her mother would sit with wee Cindi for hours drawing profiles, and doing German/Polish papercuttings. At 8 Cindi discovered she could earn small change from her talents, and by almost 16, she was hired by Disneyland to do profiles in the park, in watercolors and pastels. That is where her magic began. She saw a silhouette artist-- the kind who just looks at you and with scissors and paper only he carved out an exact likeness from thin, black paper. " I asked to try, and was laughed at", Cindi remembers. Whatever I did was better than the prior artist, they fired him, and gave me the coveted spot. It became my summer job in highschool and later in college, where I graduated in communications and fine art. Those two degrees work well with crowds. Being able to understand the guests, and to know what they feel they look like, interpreted with their actual features. These qualities, make Cindi Harwood Rose stand out for her generation of the few silhouette artists remaining in the world, according to Peggy McClard, international silhouette historian. Rose's signature is worth an investment, her work, has flair, detail, and style. Silhouette artist Cindi is featured by the Guild of Papercutters as the premier silhouette artist. Her work has taken her all over-the-world. Even, Ashley Judd, commented, that Cindi Rose was the only great silhouette artist she has seen, as many just give everyone the same face, and Cindi does not, her work goes into capturing personality. Silhouette art is unique, as there are only a handful of these masters in the world, the art can't be taught, it is developed from natural talents, and is rare to find. Cindi is great at corporate events, weddings, fund raisers, museums, and store events.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 9, 2021From Charlottesville, VA

Working with Cindi was wonderful! She is SO talented, and has a great personality too! We and our guests really loved having her at our event, and we have had so many compliments on her work and on having such a traditional, unique, beautiful artistic element as a part of our wedding reception. We would ask her to perform again in a heartbeat! Cindi did silhouettes of our guests and us, and gave both guests and us a copy (ours went into a guestbook that guests signed...we love this so much more than a traditional guestbook). We love our silhouettes, and cannot wait to hang them on an accent wall in our home!!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 24, 2021From Brookshire, TX

Cindy is the most special person. Everything she does is purely professional. She arrived early, set herself up independently, and wore the cutest silhouette dress with scissor barrettes in her hair. She did her famous silhouettes for a large group of adults with disabilities, and i have never seen them so patient, calm and happy! She talked gently to them and was able to do her art even if they moved a bit. She was conscious of covid, wearing her mask the whole time. Hiring Cindy was a beautiful choice, she is a lovely , friendly person with a good heart... Judy and Marc Herzstein

Cindi Harwood Rose:

Thanks Judy and Marc, It was a blessing to feel the happiness of the community of adults with varying disabilities, as well as the dedicated staff. Seeing everyone so pleased with their hand-cut portrait (with their name on it., most could proudly tell me), was a treasure for my heart too. It’s reasons like this that makes me dedicated to continue the work I started as a teen, of creating lasting memories.
