Great Silhouette Artists in Department stores for the Holidays! By Paper Details


Great Silhouette Artists in Department stores for the Holidays!
By Paper Details
Have you ever been to one of your favorite glam department stores,
and where wowed by a silhouette artist? Many of them, not from the area,
came in especially to do cherished silhouettes of your family. As a fourth
generation artist, and silhouette artist for over 35 years, Cindi Harwood
Rose, tells of the tradition: After she did silhouettes as a teen and
college student for Disney themed amusement parks, the artist then shifted
to department stores, business conventions, and special events to hand-cut
profiles in the classic lost art style. This is the popular art that
predates the camera, where the fine artist actually draws with a scissors,
or directly cuts out a profile while viewing a person or subject. In stores
the work should be more modern, than what you may have had in a theme park.
However, the artists who did work in the parks, are often the most detailed
of the silhouette artists, and are the best with children and families.
In this article, we researched to find that skilled silhouette
artists: Cindi Harwood, Kathryn Flocken, and Virginia Rose, have all done
silhouettes at specialty stores throughout the US, and abroad. Cindi's list
alone includes Neiman-Marcus, the once Kaufman's in Pittsburgh, Bergdorf
Goodman in NY, Saks Fifth Avenue in Houston, Palm Beach, Bal Harbor Florida,
Beverly Hills, The Dillard's stores in Texas, Macy's in many cities
including NY, Nordstrom's, the once lovely Sakowitz in Arizona and Texas.
Kathryn's work has been in demand in the same quality stores throughout the
US, and in Florida, Ga., Alabama, Mississippi, Canada, and New York, while
K. Housel Bogue had been popular across the globe for many Macy's and
Dillard's stores for many years. The Dallas silhouette artist, Virginia
Rose (not related to Cindi Harwood Rose), has also been seen across the
globe at the Dillard's, Macy's and Sanger-Harris stores in Dallas Fort Worth
areas. Tim Arnold has also worked at the Dillard's stores and local stores
in neighborhoods. These are America's most established, experienced, and
prolific silhouette artists. Most are from generations of artists, came by
their skill naturally, and love to work with all art mediums, and for gifts
around special occasions. All of these skilled scissor artists find great
joy in the art itself, and each can do intricate details, all with many fine

"taught". There are some average silhouette artists, but from research
thought many websites, and from silhouette historians, these are America's
