"I was lucky enough to meet Shanlie in person at a local event where she hand-cut silhouettes of my (then) two children while I watched in amazement. When we our 3rd child was born earlier this year, I knew I wanted his tiny silhouette up there with the rest! I was able to easily upload his profile on Etsy, order, pay, and receive his handsome picture in the mail. Thank you for your unique talent, prompt delivery, and friendly service!"

-Nicole T. 

"I couldn't be happier. These silhouettes are something I will cherish forever and hope to be passed down to be cherished even more. I recommend Silhouettes and Such, to any and everyone!"

-Courtney L.

"Can't get over the likeness-- even my 18 mo old pointed and recognized herself immediately!!"

-Deb C.

"We met Shanlie at an event at Maiden South in Bainbridge, GA. We were thrilled to get a silhouette done of my 2 year old son. I was worried he’d be too squirmy, but Shanlie made quick work of it. We were amazed at her talent and thrilled with the precious silhouette!"

-Patty H. 

"One of the most talented artist I have ever met. She is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet, so the time spent getting your silhouette done is very enjoyable too. If you are ever at an event she is attending, do not miss the opportunity to have your silhouette made."

-Jim B.
