Washington Cuts

Paper cutting became a big factor in Janelle’s work whilst still working in fashion. A department Creative Day inspired her to base her presentation around paper. After researching idea’s she came across the art of paper cut and was inspired by the clean lines used to create details. Her presentation on paper cut was very well received and gave her the inspiration to carry on working with paper. Since then she  worked on paper cuts to give as gift then moved on to her first commission; an anniversary gift for her friends parents which set her on the path to starting her own Etsy shop.
