Marie-Helene Grabman

All papercut work is freehand cut from a single piece of paper with surgical scissors in the Swiss-German artistic tradition but with American themes. Some work embellished with acrylic to add color focal points; other work with additional layers of cut papers added under or over original base cutting. All papercuts allowed to be dimensional,. They are floated on a back mat to create shadows, an important part of the final composition. I also offer hand cut silhouette portraits.

Kid Friendly! Watch as a cutting is started then take it home and finish it yourself. Learn about the history of this almost lost art.
