Paper Cuts

Every paper cut is individually hand formed starting with a pencil sketch to create a template then hand cut using a craft knife and scissors. They are not created using a laser, or any machine. Making them by hand is a time consuming craft but it is also calming and allows for each one to be individually unique. Each one can take anywhere between an hour to several hours, depending on the size, material used and complexity of the design.

Because they are so delicate in nature and prone to tearing, to protect these artworks it’s best if they are put between panes of glass or framed and matted. I have placed mine on top of a round wooden table and then placed a round glass panel on top of it, as the weight of the glass is placed on the artwork the paper spreads evenly allowing the design to smooth out and it doubles as quite decorative conversation piece!
