Pug papercutting finished

Final cut on this pattern- edition 3/3.  And most productive week ever!  ;)

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel papercutting

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, edition 2/3.  I sold the first edition of this cutting at an art show in July if I remember right.  So it only took 5 months to get caught back up on this one..  :)

German Shorthaired Pointer papercutting

Just finished this guy- probably the most complex dog papercutting I have ever designed. All those tiny little cuts! :) I think he turned out pretty well though- a nice regal expression on his face..

Saluki papercutting

Edition 1/2 just finished!

Neurons II, double-layered papercutting

Final edition!  -ETSY LINK-
This design was a commission request, and I loved playing with the fine lines so much that I made it an edition of two and am thinking about designing further pieces aong these lines further down the line.  The bottom piece is cut out of pale gray cardstock, the top piece is black cardstock.  The two layers are spaced with matboard around the edges and interwoven to give dimension to the piece.

Wirehaired Fox Terrier papercutting, in progress

Working on cutting Edition 2/3 since 1/3  just sold:

Woodcarved Angel Statue

Just finished this piece, and I am thrilled with the way she turned out.  This is the first larger free-standing hardwood statue that I have completed I think ('larger' being a relative term- she is only about 8 inches high).  She can be used as a larger Christmas ornament too of course, she is just at that perfect in-between size.  :)

The holidays are coming..

.. and we are getting close to the cutoff point where I won't be able to accept any more custom pet portrait papercutting requests for Christmas.  I will be glad to do the work for you regardless, I just won't be able to guarentee completion/delivery in time for Christmas.  Get in touch if you are interested!
