paper cut perfection

for quite some time now we’ve been big fans of nikki mcclure’s paper cut art.

this very clever lady, a self-taught artist from olympia, washington, uses an x-acto knife to carve incredibly intricate images out of paper. the trick is that every single one of her images remains an entire sheet of paper (no mean feat when you see just how much detail she has cut into them).
her work speaks of community, family, sustainability, and the environment. it encourages us to slow down and take time to look at all the simple things around us that we so often miss in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
nikki’s art is something that always revitalises us when important (a.k.a boring but stressful)things get us frazzled. we hope it does the same for you too.
