We are pleased to host Silhouette Artist, Lena Bengtson on December 9 beginning at 10:00 a.m.
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 for details on making this a unique addition to your home. Don't be left out - this will make a wonderful gift for the holidays.
