Tina Tarnoff's Profile
I am a San Francisco-based artist, working in a variety of mediums and styles, from oil painting to charcoal drawing to realistic portraiture. My latest interest is Papercut Art, an ancient yet modern art form that is generating a good deal of attention among art lovers, designers, and interior decorators.
Here is a brief description of my work: I draw and hand cut each image from a single sheet of paper, then display it on beautiful, handmade Indian cotton rag paper. I sign and date each piece, then mount it on a sturdy 11”x14” black mat. The finished artwork is then placed in an archival cellophane sleeve or inside a black wood frame with a glass front. Each piece includes a certificate of authenticity and a description of the art form.
Making a papercut requires a lot of precision and attention to detail. I like the female shape and I like the sense...
