The Lonely House & Other Tales
As a primarily self taught artist, I am drawn to the folk style of creating art work. Paper cutting or Scherenschnitte , has been a style of image making that I have related to since I was a young girl. Raised by a family of creatives who settled in Brown County, Indiana in the 1800s from Germany, story telling and things homemade were always of great importance. My goal is to continue this tradition with stories of my own, and retelling familiar tales that I heard while growing up.
This body of work, is a series of paintings and paper cuttings based on fairytales and stories from my family history. Stories about personal adventures, decision making and personal growth.
