If I where several persons, one of them would definitely commit to the art of paper cutting. It is amazing what you can do with just paper, a sharp knife and a scissor. And lots and lots of time, talent and deep concentration. I believe I have the patience, but not the time right now in life.
One truly splendid paper artist is Elsa Mora, or Elsita, from Cuba now living in Los Angeles. Her work is so detailed and full of stories and thoughts, I just love them. She is also a painter and makes a lot of other interesting things in fabric, porcelain and more. Visit her at http://elsita.typepad.com
