Greetings! I'm a lifelong fine artist with 35 years of experience in cutting profile portraits from quick live sittings. Your guests will leave with an heirloom favor,: their likeness in cut paper. I call it "the Elegant Extra" and many couples have told me the silhouettes were the hit of their reception.

I travel anywhere the client will cover my travel expenses and accommodations. I've had bookings from coast to coast, and several in Canada.

I have a THREE HOUR MINIMUM. Except for gatherings of under 50 people, too many guests would otherwise be disappointed.

Having a live artist at your reception or event lends a custom artistic touch and wows your guests, making the day especially memorable. They will never forget your affair. The process is highly entertaining to watch, while portraits quickly emerge as if by magic, using just scissors.

I have extensive experience at weddings, corporate events, private parties, proms, project graduations, bar and bat mitzvahs, reunions, fundraisers, galleries, craft shows, museums, and historical society functions, and aboard international cruise ships.

I particularly enjoy working at weddings, knowing that I have something special to add to a couple's Big Day. Most frequently I do theirs ahead of time so their portraits can be on display, framed, at the reception. Please contact me to talk about your vision for your special occasion. My goal is to exceed your expectations. I hope you'll have a look at my reviews and contact me very soon.

I look forward to speaking with you soon and welcome all your questions. Since our goal is to exceed your every expectation, you'll find me agreeable, adaptable and very hard working. Just phone any time to discuss your vision for your event. Please note that with very rare exceptions I have a THREE HOUR MINIMUM for events outside Maine.

There aren't words to describe what a special addition Ruth was to our wedding celebration. She was the highlight of the wedding, and though we booked her for only three hours, demand for her silhouettes far exceeded anything we could have imagined. Ruth selflessly stayed til the very end of the wedding and made sure that every single guest received a silhouette. Not only did our guests love her and rave about the silhouettes, we now have a beautiful album of all of our guest's silhouettes as a precious keepsake. Ruth is simply amazing and pure class, I can't recommend her enough to any bride or anyone else planning a special event. Thank you so much Ruth.
