Shear Beauty. Cut Paper Art By Lorraine Nam.

above: Rice Husband

Like Peter Callesen, Helen Musselwhite, Yuken Teruya, and Yulia Brodskaya, here's yet another artist who's very talented with a pair of sharp shears. An illustration graduate from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Lorraine Nam paints, illustrates and hand-cuts paper like no one's business. The results are Asian-influenced storytelling with highly detailed cut paper silhouettes.

These three stunning and intricate pieces are crafted from a single piece of mulberry paper that measures approximately 22" x 30".
