Starbucks Exhibit

It's been a long time coming - it's taken weeks of discussion with the manager and the artist who previous was displaying her work - but Friday night we got to hang up six pieces at our local Marshfield, MA Starbucks cafe.

We divided the pieces into two spaces- the first was in the main seating area where we hung three larger older pieces. I thought the Native American and the Maya pieces would work well with Starbucks' multi-cultural feel. They're currently offering several Latin American coffee blends so the theme works well.

The other space was in the hallway toward the back of the store, and featured three smaller pieces that were inspired by the monuments and architecture of Boston. Many of the residents of Marshfield are visitors from Boston or commute there daily for work.

If anyone is interested in stopping by the address is

784 Plain Street
Marshfield, MA 02050
It's a half hour south of Boston off of Rt. 3.

It's a great opportunity to have my work get local exposure, and it should be up through the holiday season and possibly longer.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Media!

Hi everyone,
I recently was visited by a local reporter who did an article on my work for the Marshfield Mariner, a small local newspaper. It has a video of me yapping about papercutting and a photo of me cutting out one of the papercut ornaments. Thought I'd share and give a face to the mysterious email person.

Holiday Ornaments!

I am happy to announce that I have finished designing my line of Christmas ornaments. This year, I have designed three pieces, which I will create a limited edition of 17 ornaments for each. I hope to make a series of ornament each year, this being the first.

Each papercutting is hand cut from a sheet of white card stock and adhered to a colored background (Reindeer-red, Sleigh-blue, and Pine-green). They are then initialed and dated on the front, and fully signed and numbered (x of 17) on the back. The frames are painted a beautiful shiny silver with a hand-tied silver and white ribbon hanger.Each ornament frame measures 3x3" with 2.5" papercutting inside. They are $20 each with $5 priority shipping. You receive the papercut, ornament frame, thank you note, and beautiful keepsake box (with hand-tied bow!).

I have created a new web page on my site for the ornaments with a bunch of photos:

Just to toot my own horn, I'm pretty darn proud of the bow I tied in the box photo. Just wanted to share that.
