Why We’re Here

Are you looking for royalty-free images that you can use for things you want to make and sell or make and give away, or just make and enjoy yourself? It can be really difficult finding high quality pictures to use in your arts, crafts, ebooks, or anyplace where you’re trying to add visual interest. Silhouette Art was created to help solve this problem.

The Terms of Use are easy to understand and follow. No more wondering if it’s okay to use an image on your blog, website, or newsletter.

Who I Am

My name is Karen Hatzigeorgiou. By day, I’m a mild-mannered 7th grade English teacher. By night (and on the weekends) I am an obsessed book collector. My fascination with old books and illustrations lead me to create the Public Domain Images part of my first web site at Karen’s Whimsy in 2004.

One Hobby Leads to Another
I needed images to help me create collage art and altered books, and I was worried about copyright restrictions. I used Dover Clip Art for a while, until I started seeing other people using the same images over and over. That’s when I knew that I could put my book buying hobby to good use.

Rules of the Road
All the images on this site are available for free with minimal restrictions. Please see my Terms of Use for more details. Basically, you can use the images royalty-free, without copyright restrictions, for items you want for personal use or to sell. I only ask that you don’t redistribute the images themselves in any way. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I hope that you will put these beautiful silhouette images to good use in your creative endeavors!
