Cut in 2011
18x24 inches framed, papercut measures 13x20
Hand-Cut Black paper on white illustration board
This piece depicts a white pine that grows near Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I love this tree because of the bare branches that remain. I truly enjoyed designing and cutting this piece, and I think it may become a series of tree portraits.
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.
I have been papercutting professionally for four years. My work has been shown in galleries and museums across the country and was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal. I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the Guild of American Papercutters.
