Paper That Pops Exhibit and Demonstrations, May 22-30, Denver Art Museum

The Denver Art Museum was another incredible experience with great opportunities to share my passion for paper cutting. A man from China was intrigued with my process. We exchanged knowledge on the history of Chinease and German paper cutting. A family from India stopped to learn new techniques and tools their daughter could explore- she is quite the artist. A little guy named Diego started with questions and ended with statements more thoughtful and intelligent than some adults. A very satisfying and successful weekend. A big THANK YOU to my friends for your support.

One Fine Day for a Nap was purchased by the Avera St. Mary's Hospital and recently took its place on the wall of their Cancer Institute in Pierre SD.

 

My heart is delighted to know this charmer will be charming young and old.

 

Even on the darkest day, foxy can bring a smile.

Intrigued & intelligent, Maya & I had a lot to talk about.  We made stars twinkle & played a game with my portfolio. Foxy was ONE of her favorites. At the end, she surprised me with a paper cut.  I gave her a star I paper cut.  A gift for a gift. Thanks Maya.

 
 The kids were excited, which made me excited,
which made their parents cheer...
or was it the other way around? 
I was super excited, which made the kids excited, which made their parents cheer.  Any way you slice it, the energy was magnetic!

 


Kids and adults were drawn to these unique pieces that pop. Some had many questions. How do you get them so perfect? Do you put your design into a computer and use a laser cutter? Pointing to my hand and heart, I said, "It begins and ends here." I don't seek perfection. It doesn't exist in humans.
When my piece rings, 
my heart sings.

ONTO THE NEXT!


It was wonderful to have the support of a dear friend. Thank you Gutierrez family.

Fortune Cookie 
AKA paper cut charm in jewelry box. 

I had someone from the audience choose a jewelry box- 6 in a row.

I opened it and showed them the charm, pulling the fortune out which asked a question.

It was my way of keeping the audience engaged & myself on track while getting to the heart.


Jolene and her daughter, Shaian, came to support. Jolene is a published author and good friend, website.
Thanks for the great photos Jolene!
