The Forum at Memorial Woods

Cindi Harwood Rose cutting Silhouettes at The Forum at Memorial Woods in Houston, Texas.

A kind note from the Activity Assistant after the event:

Cindi--to merely say "thank you" seems so inadequate for the blessing of
having you spend time with us here at The Forum! Please know how much I
appreciate you working with us expense wise and I do recognize that it was
very generous of you.
I hope that we might connect again sometime in the not so distant future for
perhaps a different activity like we discussed.
Thank you again and I wish you well in all of your endeavors.

Silhouettes for Survivors at Texas Children's Hospital

As a volunteer, Cindi Rose does free silhouettes for Texas Children's Hospital

C. Harwood Rose entertains the children at Texas Children's hospital, and gives them a lasting silhouette, to decorate their room, and for their family to keep.

A letter to Cindi;

Hi Cindi, Natalie Allouche here. I am friends with Holly. My son Yonadav Z'L was in Houston for 2 years, at MD Anderson. I remember the time you set up an appointment for me to see Michaell, your hairdresser. It really made me feel so good when so much was so wrong. I hope you and your family are all in good health. I have the silhouette of Yoyo you did of him hanging in my bedroom, next to his brother's Adar Z"L.
Hard to believe it has been 3 years. I would love to visit Holly for a day or so, probably fly, can't stand the ride!
Maybe we could see each other to say hello?
Take care and thank you for your kindness at such a difficult time in my life
Natalie Allouche

The Dish~ Houston

What would be a more wonderful way to say "I love you" than a thoughtful hand-cut silhouette by scissorgraphist, Cindi Rose, a treasured art seldom seen and mastered. Silhouettes, also called paper-profiles, will be cut on Friday, Feb. 12, at Tanglewood Gifts located at Chimney Rock and Woodway, at 5750 Woodway, from 11 to 1, and 2 to 5. Rose, who is considered the "foremost living silhouette artist" uses natural talents and surgical scissors to capture a likeness, without a sketch or shadow. This insures that the work will have fine-details and embellishments such as stylish hair-dos, ribbons, neck-ties, pipes, head-bands, and necklaces.
A second generation artist, she began drawing portraits at 11 years old, and cutting silhouettes for a Disney amusement park lessee, at 16.
There are only around 25 authentic practicing silhouette artists (also called papyrotomists) in the world. A silhouette gift lasts forever, and will show that your love will last forever. Silhouettes are $40 a person, with extra copies at $10 a person. This way you can think of spouse's, parents, siblings, and other loved ones. Children do not have to sit still or be dressed for the occasion. Master silhouette artist, Cindi Harwood Rose, can make them look "clean" in the picture. To make things more loveable, this will benefit The Rose Ribbon Foundation, to help the uninsured with critical illness.
For more information contact (713) 385-0736, or Tanglewood Gifts at (713) 266-1006. No appointments are needed, but are reccommended. Silhouettes can be done of pets from profile pictures.
