Artist Statement

My papercut designs are created through a series of sketches with finished designs in a continuous piece. They are then hand-cut with knives and special tools on black papers. The finished papercut is then glued with hand-made color papers to the back. For the multi-color papercuts, the deigns are cut on white rice papers and then hand colored with liquid watercolor. The folkart of papercutting was passed down to me as a young boy by my grandfather.
