We are pleased to host Silhouette Artist, Lena Bengtson on Saturday, March 10.
She has 30 years experience in the European embellished style of creating silhouettes which means the finished image is not just a black and white profile, but includes extra hair and clothing detail. She can create baby, children and adult silhouettes - or a combination - from a live sitting or a side view photograph.
Please contact us now to set up your personal 15-minute appointment or to drop off a photo for her to work from.
These make beautiful and thoughtful gifts for Easter.
