Meet Elsa Mora, but you can call her Elsita – a Cuban artist who has a new blog about papercutting that highlights her own work and others in this world. It is very much worth your time. Her work is incredible – there’s something about the nature of working in paper that really grabs me. In a way – it is like a graffiti artist who knows that their work exists in a brief moment of time. There is something so fleeting and fragile that holds my attention.
Papercutting is an old art that I don’t see much anymore outside of my daughter’s pop-up books on fairies. She sells her things on Etsy and I would encourage you to peruse her store. Here are a few more images from her website: www.allaboutpapercutting.com
