Description

I arranged this virtual studio day as a tribute to the Fleet Street artist Isabella Beetham

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 Isabella Beetham?

Silhouettes by Isabella Beetham are highly sought after by collectors of antique silhouettes and quite valuable. She worked from a small studio above her husband’s Fleet-Street washing-machine showroom, not far from Strand where so many of her contemporaries had studios.

Isabella Beetham was a highly versatile artist who painted as well as cut her silhouettes. Many of her portraits are painted on glass or paper. It’s sad that she kept a stock of fashionable hats in her studio so that that clients could pose for their profiles dressed in the latest fashion.

Studio Day Tributes

This Studio Day is a tribute to Isabella Beetham. 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!
