About

...of cut paper and adventuring.

Many years ago my husband started making stencils.
Shortly after, his xacto knife disappeared.
I fell deeply in love with creating cut paper art.
To this day he still can't seem to hold on to his own xacto knife.

When building this love of cut paper into a business, I began using my papercuts to make screens for printing. Each bird mafia design starts as a papercut. Each design is cut out of paper, burned on to a screen and then printed.

About two years ago, (with a little push from some very good friends and my lovely husband) I started selling my artwork alongside my printed items.


I find inspiration in the forests of northern California, Oregon, and Washington, as well as their coasts and cities I love to explore.

    My name is emily. I enjoy vegan food, climbing rocks, exploring, adventuring and most of all cutting paper. I've drawn throughout my entire life. Many years ago I discovered a love for papercutting and haven't been without an xacto knife since.

    Started with an original handcut papercut design, burned that onto our silkscreen, and printed by our hands with hand-mixed waterbased ink colors, onto a soft 100% cotton flour sack towel produced by this USA manufacturer of soft goods.
