Hiring Silhouettes by Candice was one of our best decisions for the wedding reception! Candice was incredibly sweet, INCREDIBLY talented (I have never seen such accurate silhouettes done so quickly), and absolutely the talk of our reception. Many of our friends have already mentioned wanting to book Candice after our wedding, and our guests loved being able to take home such a unique treasure. We just looked through our silhouette book of our guests, and it is our new favorite possession. Thanks for making our wedding day so special, Candice! We will absolutely hire you again, and recommend you to everyone!
The artist, Candice, hand cuts a paper shadow portrait from sight in just minutes. No special lights or equipment are used other than a pair of sharp scissors and the artist's eye. The portrait is then mounted on an acid free card stock to make the ideal personalized party favor.
For a special treat, Candice can provide custom background cards personalized for your event. For a Wedding, get the name the bride and groom and the date inscribed on the background card on which the silhouette is mounted. For kids parties, Candice can provide a pick your own paper option which allows kids to pick from a variety of colorful card stocks as the backdrop for their creative silhouettes.
Candice started cutting silhouettes and drawing portraits in the late 1980's, as a teenager, working at Geauga Lake and Sea World of Ohio. She continued working as a portrait and silhouette artist through college. She graduated from The Rhode Island School of Design and then she went to work in the Animation industry in Hollywood, CA. After many years of only cutting silhouettes for family and friends, Candice took up the art again professionally. In addition to private event bookings, Candice periodically does public events in the Los Angeles area.
