Kyneton-area Sittings

Have your traditional silhouette portrait handmade in Victoria! 

The purpose of her visit is to share and speak about traditional hand "trades" (businesses, work, craftsmanship) of the past. As a rare form of portraits, silhouettes are charming, beautiful, and fit for our interest in history and craftsmanship.

Talk about history, hand-crafting, not-yet-lost trades, our shared history between the USA and Australia, in the very brief time it takes to have your portrait made. This is a rare visit!

A note on scheduling/ Planning for families:

A "sitting" is just one (1) person. Scheduling is just one (1) person's appointment time.

However if you have a family of 4 (for example) all of whom will get silhouette portraits, you are reserving 4 (four) sittings to allow enough time for all to have portraits. While 5 minutes includes sitting down, the silhouette cutting itself, and other social fun, it might not take a full 20 minutes (5-min x 4-people). 

To select more time slots (for family members),

click "Recurring" and then "Choose additional times" - you can add additional time slots for your whole family. If you need help doing this, look at this video)

Re-scheduling/Canceling:

You can reschedule an appointment if your plans change, but cancelation will be prevented if your scheduled appointment is less than 7 hours away. 

13 March: a possible extra day:
