I arranged this virtual studio day as a tribute to the Danish silhouettist Inger Eidem.
Silhouette cutting takes place online. All my studio days consist of a series of 10-minute portrait sittings, which take place over Zoom.
After booking your sitting(s) you’ll receive an email ticket containing a Zoom link and further information. I’ll also send a reminder shortly before the event.
On the day you’ll be asked to log in to the Zoom event two minutes before the time you chose. I’ll cut silhouettes of you and your family and pop them in the post afterwards.

Who was Inger Eidem?
Inger Eidem spent cut silhouettes at Tivoli Gardens for nearly 40 years, from 1947 until at least 1984. She had a peculiar habit of cutting both portrait and caricature versions of the same person.
I learned a lot from studying Inger’s work. For many years I was intrigued by her caricatures, yet I could never work out what they were for! Her work is recent enough for some people to remember her. Those who do will tell you that the portrait and the caricature were cut at the same time.
Really? How can that be possible?
Studio Day Tributes
This Studio Day is a tribute to Inger Eidem. As a self-taught artist Charles owes a huge debt to the work of past silhouettists – he has leaned so much from studying their work – so naming studio days after them is his way to pay tribute.
Charles normally cuts silhouette in his own style (there are many examples all over this website). However, if you’d like your portraits cut in the manner of this artist please do ask. Such challenges are always welcome!
