Life continues to be very happy here in sunny, Whistler, B.C. Canada. We dream of snow,but instead have been given many beautiful sunny days for this time of the year.No complaints, the skiing is still good, but do I dare think that winter is almost over?
I continue to juggle an endless stream of fun loving guests,work on “my brand” and website and my goal to create a pattern a day.I am very happy to say that I am (almost) accomplishing it all! Big pat on the back.
I am also managing to find time a bit of time to papercut.
I have been meaning to post about my new found love for papercutting for some time now. The honeymoon period has worn off and I am now fully committed to it. I find it the perfect escape from the computer. I also love that I can sit,chat and have a glass of wine all while papercutting. No injuries yet.
I have not ventured into the very small and intricate form of papercutting yet. A trip to the city and definitely a smaller blade may help me on my way.
I have done a bit of research on the web and have found some beautiful work that I would like to share with you.
I absolutely love this piece by Peter Callesen. He has transformed a flat piece of paper into a dimensional piece of work with the actual papercut expanding into the outlying space. I am very intrigued by this.I love the fragility of it.
Jeannette Kuvin Oren is extremely talented and,if I might say, a bit artistically afflicted.Her work ranges from mosaics and stained glass to wall hangings and graphic design. Oh, and she likes to cut paper too!
I feel like I should do a separate blog post on the next artist Elsa Mora.She has created a wonderful website, art is a way~about imagination and creativity in the spirit of personal growth and collective wellness.
It is full of all sorts of wonderful.A visual treat. Have a look~ Art is a way
Elsa will be in Portland this summer teaching a three day workshop with ACE camps. I have my eye on it.
Elsa, Portland, Ace camps and papercutting ~ it all sounds pretty spectacular.
I would love to discover some more artists working with this medium so if you know of any, please share!
Have a sweet, artfully inspired, week.
