Authentic Hand-Cut Silhouettes, Puzzles and more!
Everything old is new again!
A nearly lost art form from the 1700's -Hand-Cut Silhouettes- is now making a comeback in the 21st century!
Started as a popular alternative to expensive commissioned oil portraits in the 1700's, the art of silhouette cutting pre-dates photography by about 100 years, and is considered a precursor to the modern-day portrait photograph.
Done exclusively with scissors and without the aid of pen ink, or tracing, it became a popular way of capturing an individuals' likeness, as well as a practical way of keeping family records.
Although regaining popularity, this precious art form is still hard to find: only a handful of of artists in the world still practice it today in its original, purest form.
Kathryn Flocken began her silhouette artist career in 1989, and has worked throughout Central Florida's premier theme parks.
Kathryn travels all over the country cutting silhouettes at special events, and has also been featured on national television demonstrating this rare, and fascinating art form.
Kathryn is also available to make hand cut Silhouettes on the spot at your Wedding reception. Please send an inquiry to check availability. Please include the location, number of Guests, and time. Please watch Kathryn's Wedding video here and Like her Facebook page. :)
Kathryn also makes custom silhouette portraits from a photo- of you, your children, or even your pets! She can also be commissioned for an original hand-cut work of art made to your personal specifications.
