Art as Entertainment!

Silhouette artists Charles Burns and Michael Herbert have been working together as "The Roving Artist" for over ten years, brought together by a shared interest in the little-known art of silhouette cutting. They have taken what is often perceived to be a lost art and re-invented it for the 21st century, combining traditional skill with modern and stylish presentation. Today they work at a wide range of events all over the country; it is not unusual for Michael to find himself at a wedding in Italy while Charles is working at a product launch in Birmingham. They also provide workshops and team building activities.

A number of stylised variations are available, including the popular caricature silhouette and the famously unique silhouette wheel.

See your guests astonished as they are immortalised in elegance (or ignorance!) by Charles and Michael with amazing accuracy and break neck speed.  The perfect way to ensure your next special event is one to be remembered.
