One of my favorite christmas presents this year was a gorgeous silhouette of my daughter, Eva. It makes me smile every time I look at it. A silhouette really helps you notice the details in a person’s appearance; like the way Eva’s shoulder length hair curls up in the back and her perfect button nose. It’s pretty remarkable that this single flat shape is so recognizably one thousand percent her.
Today I’m sharing the work of Charmaine Olivia. She takes the simple form of the silhouette portrait to the next level. Her addition of clean geometric shapes and delicately weighted lines bring this classic french art form to a modern place, at least for me. I could stare at them all day, and at a very reasonable $65 each, I just might!
