Full Biography

One glance at the way Michael Herbert uses his hands will tell you how he earned his nick-name The Magician. His accurate and characterful silhouettes are cut in a matter of seconds with a long pair of surgical scissors.

He taught himself to cut silhouettes in the late 1990’s after studying the work of the famous American magician/silhouettist Dai Vernon.

Michael’s professional background is in architecture. This left him with a unique sense of proportion, linear style, and the all-important spatial aptitude needed for silhouette cutting.

Michael is available for mix-and-mingle silhouette cutting at corporate and private events. He also offers silhouette workshops in schools and museums

If the bride and groom would like a full-length silhouette he will take a couple of photographs on the day and cut them afterwards in his studio. He finds this way of working produces better results, allowing him more time to cut white veils, collars and dresses into the black paper.
