Charity Ball at One Great George Street

Fabulous night at the icap annual charity ball at One Great George Street. Photograher Maria V Kaz captured some great reactions of the guests’ first sight of their silhouettes cut live and free hand by me in a matter of minutes. I was even mentioned on stage by the compare! They had a great system going which every charity ball could do with adopting which was to have all the guests open their donation envelopes at the same time and the ones with a paper star inside (one per table) were the lucky ones who were to have their silhouette done that night. Focusing directly on the star holders made my job that bit more efficient and made the winner feel that bit more special. Great organisational skills from the hosts!

Palazzo Colonna!

I had the pleasure of working for one night only at the Palazzo Colonna, the oldest palace in Rome, alongside Sabrina Ronchi, the only silhouette artist in the whole of Italy! It was the first time we had worked together and we got on so well, I’m sure there is bound to be a next time after this! What a venue, what a night! Live piano music by the masterful Okiem. Such a gentleman! The taxi driver was kind enough to stop off at the majestic Trevi fountain so I could experience it’s wonder in the calm of the night before returning to my hotel and an early rise to fly home!

L.K.Bennett fashion launch

L.K.Bennett have used me on a few special occasions, this time it was launching a new range of women’s wear. The face of the Preen range was supermodel Erin O’Connor who I silhouetted along with the designers Thea Bregazzi & Justin Thornton. The height of those models is just other worldly! They dressed me in one of their classic outfits which I got to keep!

A special story

When I was 18 I was just practicing silhouette cutting on friends and family. I took a stall at a local fair for a day selling silhouettes to the public just to get a wider range of practice in and see the public reaction to my craft. A lady there, Emma, was taken by my talent and asked if I would come cut them at her friend’s wedding. So that was the first silhouette cutting gig I ever did. 20 years later and Emma calls me to ask me to come cut silhouettes again only this time it’s for her wedding! Thanks Emma for remembering me after all those years!

Another NYE at the Shard. This is starting to become my regular NYE haunt. Glad they like me enough to keep having me back!
