Annie Howe’s papercuts are intricate, detailed and cut with care. Each piece tells a story.
Annie works with you to capture your idea and represent it within a beautifully designed papercut. Whether it’s the story of a special occasion or that of your business, Annie takes extreme care in bringing forth the story from small shapes and delicate details, transforming them into a one-of-a-kind papercut. From start to finish, each papercut is hand made. Annie begins with a simple sketch which is transferred onto the back of white 70 lb acid-free drawing paper. From there, Annie painstakingly cuts away any symmetrical details of the design, such as a border. She then meticulously works at cutting away smaller and smaller pieces of the papercut, until all elements are revealed. What emerges is a beautiful, illustrative papercut, infused with the touch of the artist’s hand.
