About Charles Burns, Silhouettist

I've been cutting silhouettes at weddings, corporate events, and charity dos for over 25 years. I love the reactions I get when people see their own shadow appear, as if my magic, in my hands.

I began my career as a street portrait artist, working in London's Covent Garden. Since then I've worked all over the world and have been fortunate to cut portraits of many notable people. These include the Queen (3 times) as well as Presidents Clinton and Mandela.

Silhouette cutting works well at all manner of events. Armed simply with a pair of scissors and a pocketful of paper I mingle with guests, ask them to pose, and cut their portraits from small sheets of black paper. Each silhouette takes a minute or two and comes mounted on a smart folding wallet card. Optionally, these cards can be branded with a corporate logo or the silhouettes of a couple at their wedding.

Get in touch to arrange a free consultation over Zoom. I'll cut your silhouette while you watch to show you what I do. I'll then post the silhouette to you as a free gift, whether or not you make a booking.

Typical Clients

I typically work at corporate dinners (working around the tables) and weddings. I also offer fun silhouette workshops and talks on the art and history of silhouette cutting.
