Portrait silhouettes from Mays Barn Studio

Charles’ Silhouette Studio

COMING FROM a fine-art background, Charles’ studio has always been central to his work as a silhouettist. Mays Barn is his physical studio at his home in Berkshire. It’s the setting for a huge variety of painting, drawing and silhouette research, and provides the opening scenes in the film Silhouette Secrets.

Once a year the Mays Barn Studio is opened to the public as part of the Caversham Arts Trail.
