Studio Silhouettes

Silhouette and portrait commissions in a wide variety of styles and media

Alongside our virtual studio sits Charles’ more traditional art studio.

From here, a wide range of portrait commissions are available. From plain black cut and painted silhouettes to colourful watercolours and collages, Charles has always enjoyed pushing the definition of the silhouette portrait.


Studio silhouettes and portraits

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the many styles of silhouette portrait which Charles can make. These are those which we can readily define as a product! Many are featured in his book Mastering Silhouettes.

Charles is interested in recreating the techniques of past silhouettists. He enjoys using these techniques to create both traditional and contemporary styles of silhouette portrait. If you have something more bespoke in mind please get in touch, or browse the art gallery.

  1. I hope very much you will reinvent yourself very successfully given these strange times we now live in by continuing to use your gift of silhouetting and giving much pleasure to everyone.
    I look forward to following your tips on getting good profiles of the family and get back to you once I have done them all.
    Do you:
    1) offer a discount for single silhouettes of various members of my family as I will need to get 12 silhouettes done to complete a much longed-for gift to my parents but will be unaffordable for me.
    2) Additionally would you do it larger so that it is nearer A4.

    Many thanks again and kind regards


    1. Thanks Tara. I respond more specifically by email, but regarding the size this is no problem. Whether working live, over Zoom, or from photos I can easily adjust the size of the silhouettes to suit particular frame sizes. I don’t change any extra for this, I just need to know the size of the “window” (card mount or frame size) in which the silhouette will sit.
