I began hand-cutting paper as a tool for designing fabric prints for children’s wear. As I cut and layered screen-printed paper into stripes and patterns, I realized this would be a great medium for my own artistic expression. By also using re-cycled paper the textures and color combinations available are endless.
Many of my paper cuts are inspired by the folk art of Sweden, where I grew up. I hand-cut my own interpretations of traditional images, fantastical kurbits paintings, and ornamental embroideries, layering the pieces in an array of colors – the same process I’ve used in my decades of costume and apparel design. Today, I continue to transform simple cut paper into elaborate concepts, from floral arrangements, landscapes, and skylines to religious symbols, animals, and anywhere my vivid imagination can take me.
