Many of you know that my daughter Ellen is a paper cutter and you may have guessed from previous posts that I am kinda proud of her and the way her work keeps developing. She had a really successful exhibition recently and now she has opened her very own Etsy store! So, in a bit of outrageously obvious cross-promotion I am sharing both that info and some more pics of her work ...
This is a large piece - and very detailed. I think one of the things that makes Ellen's work unique is that she creates the text herself . The kids had the benefit of an excellent Primary School teacher who was big on literature - wouldn't she be proud?!
Hee hee - I love all the little dwarfs lurking behind the tree ... This piece sold during the exhibition.
Some detail from one of the lamps she made - also sold.
A trio to tell the story of Sleeping Beauty - all set in reclaimed frames that used to house those funny satin pictures of roses and the like.
This is one of my favourites - so much detail. Bear in mind that these are all cut from a single piece of paper so everything has to join! Again, Ellen used a reclaimed frame. We made a screenprint of this one too.
Hmmm - exploring the darker side of fairytales - and making the work 3 dimensional.
So that is a taste of the work my girl has been making. You can find her shop here and she has a Facebook page too.
