Papercutting is an art form found all around the world. In Poland, where my family is from, papecuttings, or “wycinanki” (vih-chee-NAHN-kee), were originally made by rural folk using sheep shears. They were used to decorate cottage walls and furniture. As time went on, the traditional themes of nature and rural life were maintained, but the cuttings became more intricate and refined. My cuttings, inspired by my heritage, are my contemporary designs and each is a hand cut original.
