The Roving Artist
UK | International
 
We’re known as The Roving Artist. We’ve been cutting silhouettes at weddings, all over the UK and overseas, for nearly twenty years.

Popular in the Georgian and Regency periods, silhouette portraits were the selfies of their day. They’re cut freehand with scissors in just a minute or two. We’re breathing new life into this old, English craft by giving our silhouettes a contemporary meaning. I love the way people react, on seeing their own silhouette, and the pleasure our art has given to thousands of people at so many events.

My name is Charles. I began my career as a street artist, drawing portraits in London’s Covent Garden. I started cutting silhouettes as a sideline, never imagining they would take over my career! Silhouettes have taken me all over the world, they’ve allowed me to meet and cut many famous and interesting people.

We’re seeking to introduce the art of the silhouette to an ever-larger audience, through books, films, and a program of exhibitions, talks, and workshops. I’m happy to offer a free consultation to anybody in the wedding industry. I hope you’ll take the opportunity to experience our art at first hand and get your own silhouette cut.
