Affectionately known as "The Silhouette Man", S. John Ross created thousands of portraits at shows/fairs here in Australia from the late 40's for almost 60 years. In his native country, the USA, he worked at fairs and in Hollywood before moving to Australia. S. John Ross created portraits for many celebrities and famous people including Spencer Tracey, Mikey Rooney, Vivien Leigh, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Nicole Kidman and Queen Elizabeth II. He really was a legend!
Custom silhouettes make wonderful keepsakes and heirlooms. I have found two terrific artists on etsy who create custom hand-cut silhouettes from photos...
