American professional silhouette artists proudly trade, and each holds one of the other’s works.

American professional  silhouette artists proudly trade, and each holds one of the other’s  works.
  In this photo see Silhouette Artist Cindi Rose in sunglasses holding up two silhouettes that Ruth Monsell and Kathryn did of her, in her hands.  The statuesque middle artist, Kathryn Flocken is holding the contemporary detailed, silhouette Cindi Rose hand-cut of her, and in her background, is a silhouette carved by Ruth Monsell, where you can see some flowing hair details.   Finally, paper profilist, Ruth, is holding her silhouette made by silhouettest, Cindi Harwood Rose, with the details of hair, earrings, ruffles.  You can see from this all silhouette artists are not the same.  Ruth’s work of Cindi (held by Cindi in blue) has detail to it, a handsome rendering of Rose’s profile.  Kathryn’s work, in Cindi’s arm, is accurate, bold and larger, suggesting, strength. While Cindi’s work held by the women, is insightful, yet delicate.  All three talented fine artists, worked an event in Boca, Florida, through Kathryn, and a Canadian public relations company.  Kathryn who is very skilled with details, left them off, to work quickly around the room at the largely packed business event at the luxurious Boca Hotel and Spa Resort and Golf Club.  At events, it is nice to have two or more silhouette artists, to be sure to have all the guest’s done. Silhouette artists interpret profile and personality, and all are skilled in many art mediums, with art degrees.   They do not pre-sketch the work, it is cut directly from thin, black paper, then mounted on card stock.  It can take the artist anywhere from 1 to 8 minutes to do this, depending on which artist you acquire. These silhouettes are ranked in the top 10 silhouette artists in the world. The fine art of silhouette cutting, can’t be taught, and it is rare to find three great silhouette artists in one room!
