Master Silhouette Artist, Cindi Harwood Rose, is the world's fastest silhouette and finest silhouette artist. She can cut over 60 to 100 intricate detailed silhouettes per hour at events, free-hand without the use of a pen or pencil. Her likeness is unmatched, and her personality is magnetic. For weddings and other elegant affairs, Cindi can entertain guests while giving a lasting heirloom. Brides Magazine, Lady's Home Journal, Muscle & Fitness, Woman's World, Vogue, Texas Monthly, the New York Times, praised silhouette artist Cindi for fundraisers, weddings, and artistic paper profiles.


Her detailing is unmatched, as well as her likeness's. The esteemed Peggy McClard antique Gallery recommends Cindi Rose work, it is collectible, no two silhouettes look alike, and they are valued forever. A second generation paper cutter, Rose has silhouetted for over 35 years, all over the world, and for more celebrities than any other living silhouette artist! Cindi H. Rose is an expert speaker on papercutting, silhouettes, and non-profits.

Cindi has worked for Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman-Marcus, Macy's and Dillards, children's stores, school fund raisers and charity events. She has cut Silhouettes in France, England, South America, Greece, and all over the United States.

Cindi does Silhouette commissions, and her work is in fine art galleries and museums. Rose also gives speeches on the history of silhouettes and paper cutting art from around the world, and the collection of antique, valued silhouettes. She uses archival antique, French paper to create her masterworks.

Silhouettes by Cindi for Sensational Wedding: At this event, Cindi Rose makes two silhouettes, one for the bride and grooms's book, and one for the guest, making sure to put in all the details, including hair-styles, eye-lashes, ribbons, neck-ties, and veils.
Cindi can easily do all the guests, in a 4 to 5 hour wedding booking. Cindi Rose, can also help design your wedding, incorporating your colors into a silhouette table cloth, and into silhouette cookies and pendants. She gives the bride and groom two lovely oval frames with their silhouettes facing one another, to place on the back of the chairs. If you want frames or mats for additonal wedding gifts, Cindi can organize that for you, too.
Finding Silhouette Love Strings through GigMasters

"Amazing, The Hit of the Party, the best entertainment ever" were the words used by Sue Anne McKinney to describe the unique talents of silhouette portrait master, Cindi Harwood Rose, who recently was found and hired from the talent spot, GigMasters, to do her unique artwork at her daughter's quaint vintage themed wedding. "Cindi Rose's work kept the guests staying until even after the bride and groom left," the mother-of-the bride stated. Even the wait staff claimed that they never have seen anyone as engaging.
For fun, a clothesline was hung behind Cindi Harwood Rose, who took tiny clothespins and hung the silhouettes up for the guests to admire as she worked and later they took them with them. Cindi"s talents come from generations of artists. Her mother would sit with wee Cindi for hours drawing profiles, and doing German/Polish papercuttings. At 8 Cindi discovered she could earn small change from her talents, and by almost 16, she was hired by Disneyland to do profiles in the park, in watercolors and pastels. That is where her magic began. She saw a silhouette artist-- the kind who just looks at you and with scissors and paper only he carved out an exact likeness from thin, black paper. " I asked to try, and was laughed at", Cindi remembers. Whatever I did was better than the prior artist, they fired him, and gave me the coveted spot. It became my summer job in highschool and later in college, where I graduated in communications and fine art. Those two degrees work well with crowds. Being able to understand the guests, and to know what they feel they look like, interpreted with their actual features. These qualities, make Cindi Harwood Rose stand out for her generation of the few silhouette artists remaining in the world, according to Peggy McClard, international silhouette historian. Rose's signature is worth an investment, her work, has flair, detail, and style.

Silhouette artist Cindi is featured by the Guild of Papercutters as the premier silhouette artist.
Her work has taken her all over-the-world. Even, Ashley Judd, commented, that Cindi Rose was the only great silhouette artist she has seen, as many just give everyone the same face, and Cindi does not, her work goes into capturing personality. Silhouette art is unique, as there are only a handful of these masters in the world, the art can't be taught, it is developed from natural talents, and is rare to find. Cindi is great at corporate events, weddings, fund raisers, museums, and store events.

5 stars does not even begin to describe Cindi's talent. It is more like 10 or 15. She is amazing. She never stopped for 4 1/2 hours. We had 270 guests and I think the majority of them had their silhouette cut. There was always a line the entire evening. I heard so many positive comments during the evening. Probably the most fun thing I have ever seen at a wedding and my grandchildren have a precious memory to keep forever. So much better than a signature in a guest book. So so much fun. Thanks, Janet Elman

We had Cindy doing her beautiful silhouettes at my youngest daughter's Bat Mitzvah party. It was my second time having her, and once again she was a total HIT! Cindy was the highlight of the party. My guests were so blown away by her talent. All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for helping us make my daughter's big day such a memorable event!

Cindi was amazing and a huge hit at the wedding reception. The guests loved her! She is so talented and so much fun. She went above and beyond to make each guest feel both entertained and flattered. She added many design details and made extra copies for guests doing families together and individually. Cindi arrived early and stayed late to accommodate all our guests. She prepared a beautiful archival quality guest book with copies of each of her silhouettes signed by the guests for the bride and groom as a remembrance. She also provided framed copies for the family to keep as treasured gifts. Cindi was a HUGE asset to the success of our reception! Thanks!!
