This is an original paper cut out. All my cut outs are done using a single sheet of black cardstock. I use an x-acto knife cut away the areas that are now the lighter color. I start with a pencil sketch on the back of the paper and after some intense concentration and a dull blade I have the completed unique work. The part that is white in the final work is a piece of textured colored paper that the black paper is laid on. No glue is used.

Paper cutting is a very old craft that started in China. There are now several countries that have a paper cutting tradition. I did my first paper cut out in a middle school art class. It was one of my favorite projects and the finished piece is still hanging on my wall. I did not come back to paper cut outs until about six years ago. After making a few snowflake Christmas cards I branched out to pieces that are similar to my current work. People often wonder at the patience I must have to do this kind of work. I have always been very detail oriented with an affinity for black and white design, so these paper cut outs are a perfect fit for me.

Each paper cut out comes signed, matted, and in a protective plastic sleeve.
The artwork in this piece measures 3.5” by 5.5“. The mat is 5“ by 7 “ .
This piece will come shipped to you well protected.
