About The Roving Artist

Charles Burns began his career as a Covent Garden street artist. Today he’s the UK’s busiest silhouette artist and cuts his silhouettes at some of the most prestigious events in the land.

The art of cutting profile portraits with scissors is an old English craft with a fascinating history. It died out in Victorian times – after the invention of photography – and today is almost totally unknown.

Yet silhouette cutting still has much to offer. In today’s world, dominated by technology, there is something captivating about such a simple art.

Driven by a belief in the future of his art, Charles Burns – The Roving Artist – has taken this lost craft and re-invented it for the twenty-first century. Teaming up with fellow silhouettists, Michael Herbert and others, he has created a flexible team of artists working at events all over the UK and abroad.

The artists combine traditional skill with modern, stylish presentation. Whether you need a single silhouette cutter for a wedding, or a team of artists to make 500 silhouettes at a gala dinner, The Roving Artist can provide the perfect team.

With Charles' experience and expertise the likenesses are extraordinary. Working with just a pair of scissors – and a pocketful of paper – Charles will capture your portrait in just a minute or two.

Whether it’s a royal birthday at the Ritz Hotel in London, or a family-fun day in a lorry park in Basildon, a silhouette artist will be perfectly at home.

Each silhouette takes just a minute or two, so one artist can cover a lot of people in an evening. For larger events (200+) it is possible to book a second artist.

For very large events (500+) you can also book a team of silhouettists to cover all the tables.
