Wedding silhouette at Northcote Park

What a great wedding and venue at  Northcote Park. I am in the process of making a family tree with the duplicates for the happy couple.


Silhouette Cutting, Mods and Rockers

Cutting silhouettes on Brighton Pier. Soon I will be following in the footsteps of my silhouette artist predecessors at Brighton Marina for the annual Brighton Fringe Festival.

For many years there was a well loved Silhouette Artists by the name of Arthur Forrester who had a shop halfway up Brighton Pier. Unfortunately, Arthur is no longer there. However, as you can see from Arthur’s grandson’s blog, the people of Brighton and his Grandson remember his shop well.

In homage to Arthur and in memory of that by-gone era, the fringe festival folk have booked me to demonstrate this rare art.

This year’s Brighton Fringe Festival has a 1950’s theme and there will be an array of free entertainers alongside me to amuse the public.

With any luck things will be a little calmer than they where in the actual '50's when Brighton was more well known for it's riots between Mods & Rockers than the small Silhouette shop on the pier.

So please feel free to come down and see for yourself, just leave the Moped or the Leather Jacket at Home please!

Silhouette Art at the Greyhound Board of Great Britain Event

I received lovely comments from the organiser at the Greyhound Board of Great Britain where I worked last Sunday 22nd January 2012 at the Park Plaza Riverside;

Firstly let me say thank you for your work on Sunday night. To say
you were a huge hit is a total understatement! Just about everyone I know who
was silhouetted have the images as their Facebook avatars.
I have attached a copy of the Racing Post article on the awards with an extract below.
The Retired Greyhound Trust have also asked me to pass on their thanks for the money
raised on their behalf.
Best regards

He even sent me a copy of the racing post with my name mentioned for cutting silhouettes:

As you arrived the big dog limo outside confirmed, yes this was th eright
place. And something else new, a silhouette artist moved deftly among
guests,using her scissors creatively for beautiful mementos - while raising
funds for retired greyhounds. Great idea.
