I'm so glad I discovered Nikki McClure

I am so happy to have discovered Nikki McClure. The more I read about her, and the more I look at her beautiful creations, the more in love and inspired I become. Her unique artwork is made from paper cut-outs. She uses an x-acto knife and carves out incredibly intricate designs from a single piece of paper.
I just love the feeling of these images. She captures simple, precious moments of everyday life, which also evoke feelings of a much deeper, more complex beauty and symbolism.

If you have a minute, watch this little video to see how she makes her amazingly intricate paper cut-outs. It's really interesting... Her art, her small independent business, her entire lifestyle, it's all so inspiring!

See her website here. She has so many incredible posters, calendars, books and cards. I Especially love this journal (which I just ordered online).
Like I said before, I'm so happy to have discovered her!

These are awesome! Thanks for sharing. The video didn't work for me for some reason. I'm not sure why. I'll try to go Vimeo directly.

Lots of love.
