Event Showing On

Silhouettes are miniature profile portraits. Artist Lauren Muney cuts profiles freehand with scissors – without drawing first, or creating by machine, or tracing any shadow. Silhouette profile cutting has a long history which has unfolded over 400 years.

Visitors can get their profile created by Lauren Muney for a fee (prices vary depending on size, etc).

About Lauren Muney

She fell in love with silhouettes, the art of silhouette cutting, and its place in history. She is self-taught in the freehand-scissoring silhouette skill, based on descriptions from silhouette masters from previous centuries. She has been cutting silhouettes professionally since 2009.
