Emerald Tree Boa papercutting

This was an older pattern, so I added a lot of detail as I was cutting this.  Bright vibrant greens in the background painting really make him stand out- I was trying to duplicate the gorgeous colors of the snake who I photographed, and I think it came out pretty well.  This piece is available unframed online and framed at art shows, in person, or on request.

Dragonfly Papercutting finished

This was one of those pieces that I only rough-sketched to start, then made up a lot of the details as I was cutting.  I was happy with the original sketch, but I am absolutely thrilled with how the final cut looked!  It did help that I did it as a larger piece (11x14) for the first edition- I am able to play a lot more when I have that sort of space to work with.
