Artwork Description

Showcasing paper as my medium presents opportunities to focus on scoring, embossing and detail cutting. In this instance, a curled flap that reveals an opening in a sheet of art paper offered a unique resting spot for the nuthatch. Details in the feathers contrasted the smooth curled support and negative shapes in the background.
