About

I'm endlessly fascinated by the possibilities of paper

Hi! I'm Sarah, a papercut artist and illustrator. I currently split my time between Annapolis, MD and Allentown, PA. I live happily with my cat, Lucy, who is my constant companion and studio assistant.
Doing art has never been a choice for me. For as long as I can remember, it has been the only path I've wanted to follow. My mom is a very creative person and I like to think I inherited that trait from her. Her side of the family is Pennsylvania Dutch, so I learned the tradition of scherenschnitte (German for literally "scissor cuts" ) early in life. After concentrating in drawing and photography in college and wanting to experiment with new mediums, I turned back to papercutting and found that it opened so many creative doors for me.
I'm completely captivated by the delicate and methodical process of papercutting. Removing so much of the paper surface leaves me with a lace-like miniature world that always renews my awe of this art form.
I find inspiration in nature, fairy tales, children's stories, botanical illustrations, and so much more. I am endlessly fascinated by the possibilities of paper becoming something meaningful. I love watching a sheet of paper transform into a beautiful piece of art one cut at a time. This feeling of exploration keeps me excited about my work and keeps me wanting to work on it more and more every day.
Deciding to sell on Etsy has been a decision I will never regret. I’ve met so many wonderful people and have gotten so inspired by listening to their stories and seeing their creations. Being around other creative people has really motivated me to push my boundaries and expand my product line to new territories. Thank you, etsy!
