Inspired by a collection of early family silhouettes, Shriver began creating silhouette collages incorporating antique papers with original ideas. When creating an original, the hand cut silhouette is the main subject, it is juxtaposed with relevant maps, stamps, antique ledgers & letters, beach collections, fossils, leaves, branches, wax seals, etc.
The silhouette collages are of many different subjects, including sailing ships, antique chairs, tables, dog breeds, cats, tea pots, pitchers, tureens, sea life, birds, butterflies, farm animals, horses, presidents & famous peoples silhouettes.
Shriver has been creating, exhibiting & selling original art around the world for nearly 30 years. The work continues to evolve each year which is extremely rewarding.
Kid Friendly! Kids participate in the Colonial custom of sealing wax. There are a large selection of seals to choose from and kids choose a design that appeals to them. They impress the seal into a puddle of hot wax, with their signature and date, and make a memento of the Fair. Antique seals, letters and large ledger are available to view.
