About

Papercut Art - A Love Story

My passion for papercut art started the first time I saw Victorian silhouettes, papercuts made by Hans Christian Andersen, shadow puppet theatre of Bali, and intricate Chinese papercuts. They all completely mesmerized me. The shape and sense of movement one can achieve from a single sheet of paper intrigued me and made me want to be a part of that magic circle. So, I gave it a go and never looked back. Making a papercut requires a lot of precision and attention to detail. I think what attracts me to papercut art is the sense of building something, the sense of sculpting, and the clean cut aspect of it. Making papercut art feels natural to me. I have good control of my hand and the paper, and have a clear vision of what the image or shape should be. It's truly magic. I think the most important thing I'm trying to achieve in my creations is the sense of freedom, of movement, of passion for life, nature and for one’s art.

Among my favorite papercuts are those of the ballet dancers, which were the first pieces I created. I’’ve always been a lover of dance and wanted to capture its grace and movement. I slowly progressed to telling stories with my papercut art. Among the first of those is my Autumn Kiss papercut, which became my all-time best selling item. I love creating different stories with my art, incorporating whimsical aspects, and giving my papercuts a wisp of magic. I also love recreating my favorite fairy tales, books, and movies.

It was a natural progression to transfer my papercuts into jewelry and create wearable art. My collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings have become by far my most popular items. I’m very gratified with the reactions of my customers and their incredibly positive feedback and reviews. I joined Etsy in 2008, very quickly gained a good deal of attention, and continue to see my business grow. I’m truly thankful it enables me to make a living out of something I love to do.
