I have been doing silhouettes for over 15 year. My silhouettes are hand cut on the spot without any pre-drawing. Each silhouette come with a beveled mat board black frame and mounted on card stock. After creating it and putting it in the frame it is put in a clear cellophane resealable sleeve/bag. I also put them in a second bag this is a translucent/ frosted white handled gift bag. When I cut out my silhouettes I cut out two at a time so one is given to the guest and the other can be put in an album that you provide. This album of your guest's silhouettes can be enjoyed for years to come. I will have each guest sign and write something in this album. Check my Gig Masters calendar for availability.
Some clients hired me to do both caricature and silhouettes for her event (see November 16th review). To see more samples of my caricatures and silhouettes please use this link on your computer to get to my One Stop Events and Parties website with Gig Masters: . Also I have over 86 reviews on the One Stop Events and Parties site and many of them are from doing silhouettes at events.
After graduating from Long Beach State in Art, I worked as a graphic artist and later started my own art for entertainment business.
Some of my clients are: Pepsi Co., Costco, Jet Blue, Queen Mary, Ports O Call Village, Knott's Berry Farm, Fletcher Jones Mercedes, University of Phoenix, Toastmasters, Parker Aerospace and Guess Jeans.
Let me know if you would like to book me for your event, I would love to create a unique memento for you guest to take home with them.

Our guests LOVED this addition to our daughter's wedding. I didn't imagine that every single guest would want to have their silhouette done. Darci made everyone happy. I would highly recommend hiring Darci. I think she provides a lot of bang for your buck!

May 11th 2013 - Bridal Show in Burbank
Darci not only an amazing and talented artist, she is also so sweet, warm, and accommodating, and she makes your guests feel incredibly comfortable. I hired her as a silhouette artist for a bridal shower and everyone was so amazed at how quickly she worked-- it is a marvel to see! She is able to cut two silhouettes at a time, one for the guest to keep and one that will get put into a scrapbook for the bride, what great way to make the event memorable and special! I would absolutely love to work with Darci again, I am going to be a repeat customer!
August 11th 2013 - Children's Birthday Lakewood
Darci's just awesome all over. Not only was she very skillful at what she does, she has a very cheerful personality and excellent with guests! I ended up extending her for another hour because everybody wanted to have their own silhouette. I received compliments and the best part is that you get a copy of everybody else's silhouette - awesome material for a first birthday album. Now that is sweet. Thanks again Darci for adding the oomph to my daughter's party. -Lorelei M, Lakewood, CA (gig ID# 1475575)
August 4th 2013 -Wedding
Darci was singlehandedly the most fabulous vendors to work with. She is exquisitely talented, accommodating and just a joy to have around! She was a huge hit, so much so that she stayed for the whole reception. Do not hesitate to hire Darci for any event you are planning! The guests adored her and reported they will treasure the silhouettes she did and unlike many other wedding favors, they want to display her work. She arrived on time, was highly professional and such an asset to the wedding. You will be missing out on a distinctive and elevated addition to your event without Darci! She will be a hit at your event!!! We feel lucky to have met her. -Missy S, Fullerton, CA (gig ID# 1392931)
