I’ll be at the Lupine Gallery on Monhegan Island, ME on Saturday, May 28th. They’ll be showing original artwork from “Every Day Birds”, and I’ll be on hand to sign books.
Here are some papercuttings and stencil art I made of Prince over the last few years. I’ve been a lifelong fan and wrote about it for The Sound newspaper, and you can read it here.
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater‘s book “Every Day Birds” is out now. I illustrated the book with my papercuttings.
I’m doing a few events to celebrate the book’s release. The first two are:
Friday, March 11– Jabberwocky Bookshop, Newburyport, MA, 6pm. I will talk about my papercutting influences, show my technique, answer questions, and sign books. Fun fact: I once worked at this bookstore!
Saturday, March 12– Ocean House Gallery, Cape Elizabeth, ME, 1-3pm. Ocean House will be showing the original artwork from “Every Day Birds” from March 12 to April 9. On March 12, we will have an opening reception, and I will be on hand to sign books as well.
“Every Day Birds“is available through independent bookstores nationwide, as well as Amazon.
I made this time-lapse video of a paper-cutting’s creation. Enjoy!
