Silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose is the Pied Piper of silhouette artists. Even wiggly children, are amazed at her magic scissors. “The scissors are like a magic wand to the children,” says Cindi, “they glisten and make shapes from special French silhouette paper”. A self-taught silhouette artist, Cindi, does not underplay the importance of natural art talents. “If you cannot draw a profile with a pencil, pen, or brush, then you could never draw with scissors,” C. H. Rose, explains. It is much harder, and that is why you rarely see real silhouette artist, who can do the lovely miniatures. By this, Cindi is speaking of the skilled artist who merely looks at a subject and cuts directly from the paper, without the use of a light, pencil, pen, or camera. This Mother’s Day, Cindi will do silhouettes in Houston at Fundamentally Toys, and in Dallas and Fort Worth, at Learning Express stores. Wiggly children, do not have to sit still, Harwood-Rose explains, not do the parents. www.silhouettesbycindi.com
