How many sittings do I need?



We arranged this virtual studio day as a tribute to the English profilist Samuel Andrews .

Silhouette cutting takes place online, so no need to worry about masks or social distancing! All our 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.

On the day you’ll be asked to log in to the Zoom event shortly before the time you chose from the list above. Charles will cut silhouettes of you and your family and pop them in the post afterwards.

Who was Samuel Andrews ?

The Irishman Samuel Andrews spent much of his short life in India, where he painted a remarkable series of miniature portraits and en-grisaille profiles.

Technically, these kind of portraits are not silhouettes. However, they are closely related to silhouettes due to their reliance on a strongly painted outline which defines the image.

Studio Day Tributes

We named this Studio Day as a tribute to Samuel Andrews . As a self-taught artist Charles owes a huge debt to the work of past silhouettists, so naming studio days like this is a good way to pay tribute to them.
[ More Tributes ]

Charles normally cuts silhouette in his own style (there are many examples all over this website). However, if you would like your portraits cut in the manner of any tributed artist please do ask. Such challenges are always welcome!
