The elegant paper art, known as silhouettes, are fascinating to watch being made and make a perfect keepsake for Weddings, Baby Showers, Graduation Parties, Birthdays, Corporate events and more!
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.
