People often ask for referrals to contemporary silhouette artists.  Cindi Harwood Rose cut a silhouette of my son 25 years ago and does beautiful work.  Her website may be found at the link below:

Above is Cindi Rose, on the right, with her daughter, Erica, and Dr. Phil.  Cindi is wearing a silhouette pendant that she bought from me....which she wore on the Dr. Phil Show.  Next is the silhouette that Cindi cut of Dr. Phil.  How cool is that?!
