Paper Proffered - The Work of Katrine Hildebrandt

Katrine Hildebrandt's paper work makes me feel like I've been punched in the face with a fist full of awesome. That is all.

  1. That is incredible! I admire the patience of all paper artists since I get frustrated at cutting out paper dancing dolls!

  3. OMG! Insane! Beautiful! Intricate! Hand Cramps! Hours and Hours! Steady Hands! Eye Strain! Talented! Gifted! Skilled! Gorgeous! Unbelievable! Fabulous! Amazing! Etc...... I could go on forever and not find the right words to express the feelings I have when I look at these.
    I mentioned to you about a man named James Bunch who used to do wood carving. I posted about him and his book. If you are interested in seeing a tiny bit of what he did you can check it out at juliassewsweetandspecial.blogspot.com
    He is now in the nursing home with my mom. I get to talk to him every day!!'
    I want to put my paper cut portraits on your flicker site but I have to get permission from my daughters first since these are their little ones. I am donating one to a charity auction that is next weekend. I'm anxious to see how that goes. I took one of mine of one of my grands along with the photo that I used for it. They are going to display those with an explanation that I will do one for whoever bids the highest of their child, grand, dog, etc.....
    I hope I am not annoying to you.

  7. Are you familiar with Hunter Stabler? Best way I can describe his paper cuts are less organic looking like Katrine's work but more like mandelas on Geiger acid.
