I Handcut Paper Animals And Use The Sky To Bring Them To Life

My name is Jo Chorny also known as peaceofpaper1, and I create art by cutting paper with a scalpel.

My favourite way of photographing my papercuts is to hold them against the sky; I love the dramatic effect this gives, and the variation of colours and textures in the sky as a backdrop. Plus this way you can see my intricate cutting more clearly.

I also like the shadows that my pieces cast. I normally set them in a box frame, so the shadow appears on the back giving the papercut a great 3-D effect.
