Handmade Silhouettes & Scherenschnitte: Original Design Papercutting Art

I started making Papercuttings during the 1980's as a young Lieutenant's wife. My artsy mother-in-law introduced Scherenschnitte to me, which she'd learned as a young American Army wife while living in Bavaria Germany during the 1960's. Using tiny, sharp scissors, I instantly fell in love with the style of the Swiss & German immigrants who brought Scherenschnitte, meaning “scissor cuts,” to Colonial America in the 18th century. After researching my heritage, I’ve found my ancestors were from that region, too!

Now, after being a teacher for over 25 years, I’m currently retired from classroom duties. As a retiree, I've continued my membership with the National and MS Art Educators Associations and serve on my state's committee for creating our Visual Arts curriculum standards. As an artisan, I'm a juried member of the Craftsmen’s Guild of MS and member of the Guild of American Papercutters.

My original art designs of handmade Scherenschnitte and Silhouettes are available online in my PaperSnipz shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/PaperSnipz, and locally in the MS Craft Center in Ridgeland. Creating customized designs is my specialty!
