Welcome and thanks for dropping in to check out my papercut art! Paper cutting, also called scherenschnitte, is an ancient art – the earliest surviving papercut dates back to 6th century China! I complete my pieces using only a straight blade razor knife and acid-free, fade resistant paper. I only sell originals, hand-cut out of a single sheet of paper.

I love to work with paper; the fragility of the medium and the range from simple to intricate that is achievable never ceases to amaze me. I welcome custom commissioned orders! I would love to turn your wedding portrait, your cherished pet, your child's school photo, or anything else dear to you into a work of art that will last for generations!

Thanks again for stopping by, and welcome!
