I just updated my show schedule for this summer and it’s jam packed with a lot of shows! My calendar at http://louiefoxx.com/calendar.php has a complete listing of all my shows that are available for you to attend!
This includes library shows, fair shows, festival shows and community event shows. Come out, see a show, say hi and have a good time!
One of the lesser known skills that I have is that I hand cut silhouette portraits. You may have seen these done where someone sits on a chair and they shine a light of them. Then they tape a piece of paper to the wall, trace the shadow and cut out the silhouette. I cut them a bit differently, I do my silhouette portraits by eye! I simply look at the person sideways and cut out their profile. The whole process takes about 2 minutes. Here’s one that I did at a Tea Party yesterday:
At this particular event I went table to table at the tea party cutting the silhouette portraits. Of course after I make your portrait you get to keep it! This can be a very fun addition to any event, like a company picnic, festival or holiday party!

One of the questions I’m asked a lot is who is my favorite magician. My favorite is a guy named Nicholas Night. I saw his show when I was about 19 years old and I fell in love with it! It’s the kind of show I could watch 100 times…and thanks to youtube I can!
Here’s my daughter’s favorite piece from his show:
