For most people, cutting different forms and shapes from paper is an effort and a challenge. But for some, it comes naturally. They can even go beyond mere trees and animal paper cuts but could create very beautiful works of art that doesn’t just look impressive but also relays a story and even emotions. You will see that from the works of our featured artist today who have undeniably notable paper cut designs.
We are referring to Elsa Mora who is a multidisciplinary artist working in the fields of drawing, porcelain, painting, and paper cut. She makes extraordinary creations which are achieved through being creative and patient. Patience is one important thing needed in order to finish an artwork. This is what she learned from her years of teaching as an ex-art teacher. She makes emotional illustrations and family tales by cutting paper showing a combination of human bodies and plant life.
