Portrait of a Heron, Bird Series No. 15
H 7" x W 9"
Hand-cut from smooth, steel blue, 80 lb. paper
Original Artwork by Amanda Mattison
Pictured with shadow

Each of my original designs is hand-cut from a single sheet of paper. I use heavy-weight papers which are acid-free, lignin-free, color-fast, light-fast, and of archival-quality to ensure the longevity of each piece. My work is spontaneous and unique as I do not cut from any type of printed pattern, stencil or picture. I refer to photographs I have taken for my design inspiration, then use a specialized finger-mounted blade to free-hand detailed cuts in paper. In essence, I am sketching with a knife.

Final presentation of papercut artwork is largely dependent upon the preference of the collector; therefore, pieces are sold independently from frames. Your shipment will include the signed, original hand-cut paper artwork, illustration board, archival sleeve and protective packaging.

This piece is striking when displayed in a square or rectangular floating mount UV glass frame and will cast lovely shadows against a wall throughout the day. It will also show wonderfully mounted flat against illustration board in a frame with no mat or in a frame with a mat. If you would like to have a piece framed, please contact me regarding purchase of a custom framing package.

Please allow 5 – 8 days for shipping.
