Cut in 2011
Hand-Cut Black paper on white illustration board
Although I grew up in Maine, I did not visit Acadia National Park until the summer of 2010. This piece depicts Bass Harbor Light, which was built in 1855. Combining my favorite design elements (water, trees, architecture, and natural textures), this piece is a showcase of my best techniques.
As with all of my work, each piece is hand-cut from a single sheet of black paper using an Xacto knife/blade. All of my pieces are one continuous piece of paper, meaning all parts of the design interconnect. I use Studiotac, an archival adhesive, to mount the papercut to the white illustration board background.
This piece is custom framed in a beautiful black frame that is approximately one inch wide and one inch deep. It is classic and compliments the piece perfectly. The piece will arrive framed.
Shipping is included in the price for US customers, and international shipping is just $50 worldwide.
I have been papercutting professionally for four years. My work has been shown in galleries and museums across the country. I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the Guild of American Papercutters.
Please do not hesitate to convo me with questions about this piece.
