Paper Cutting...

I love this artist's work, Lucrezia Bieler.
The piece above is cut out of a single sheet of paper and all patterns, designs, and scenes are her own. She is working mostly with scissors cuttings (Scherenschnitte). Lucrezia creates paper cuttings in black and white because she like to concentrate fully on the composition and the dramatic effect of light versus dark.
I've seen her work in person and I hope to one day own a piece, please go and enjoy her website.
This scene above is from Alice in Wonderland, A Very Un-happy Birthday to You!
There is a Guild of American Paper Cutters, I've bought several books on paper cutting and I hope to try it myself!
