About Paper Cutting
The ancient art of cut paper began in China with their invention of paper and traveled the trade routes to find its way around the world. Folk artists and fine artists alike have used cut paper for their artistic expression, gift giving, decoration and illustration.
Martha discovered the art of cutting by chance and has devoted herself to learning the history and skills of the art form.
Much of Martha’s work is commissioned originals – creating one-of-a-kind art pieces for special occasions. Using scissors or scalpel she cuts a visual story – using symbols and images that reflect the personal event being commemorated.
Martha also creates original pieces – both traditional in design and modern collage art pieces.
