I’ve had three recent paper cut commissions, specifically for horizontal banners celebrating lives: a 50th anniversary, a 50th birthday, and the passing of a lived life.

The Anniversary banner combined emblems of a shared life in a matrix of baroque ornament, all framing portraits of the beloved.

The Birthday banner shows a profile portrait and lives lived in Rome and Amsterdam. Plus: cats!

The third banner was a “pall” to be laid on the coffin of a woman who had led a rich and diverse life between continents.

These are all custom designs and actually take quite a lot of time. The results speak for themselves. If you are interested in a commission, don’t hesitate to contact me.
