Many years ago my husband started making stencils.
Shortly after, his xacto knife disappeared.
Shortly after, I fell deeply in love with creating cut paper art.
To this day he still can’t seem to hold on to his own xacto knife.
When building this love of cut paper into a business, I began using my papercuts to make screens for printing. Each bird mafia design starts as a papercut. Each design is cut out of paper, burned on to a screen and then printed.
I find inspiration in the forests of northern California, Oregon and Washington, as well as their coasts and cities I love to explore.
About two years ago, (with a little push from some very good friends and my lovely husband) I started selling my artwork alongside my printed items.
