Process (Paper)

scherenschnitte

 

sche·​ren·​schnit·​te | \ˈshārənˌshnitə\

Literally translates to “scissor cuts” or the art of cutting paper

 

The hand cut paper process begins by the customer providing a photograph of their pet that best highlights their personality.

 

I produce a sketch that pares down the pet to its most essential form, focusing on what makes it unique.

 

The colors are mapped out and the paper meticulously cut and then glued together in order to create the portrait. Tweezers are even used in order to get the fine details in place.

 

The resulting portrait is a minimal yet bold representation of your pet that celebrates its personality and charm.

 

Available sizes: 8”x10”, 11”x14” and 18”x24”
